On the latest episode of Race Health and Happiness, Dr. O engages in a riveting conversation with esteemed Canadian journalist Nam Kiwanuka. Nam has had an impressive run on the Canadian public television network TVO as the co-host “The Agenda with Steve Paikin”, as the host of TVO's groundbreaking project “The Thread with Nam Kiwanuka”, and as the host of “The Agenda in the Summer”. With that track record plus her years as a music journalist and documentarian, Nam is no stranger to the limelight and has firmly established herself as a Black Canadian media icon.
In this inspiring episode of Race, Health & Happiness filled with stories of triumph and determination, Nam reveals her remarkable superpower of "letting things roll off her back." She fearlessly recounts how this extraordinary ability has empowered her to navigate hostile environments with persistence and grace. Nam also sheds light on her dynamic evolution as a person and journalist as she deftly adapted and surthrived despite the adversity she faced as a refugee from Uganda establishing a new life in Canada. Nam's life journey could fill the pages of a captivating best-selling book, and we are thrilled that she generously shares glimpses of it in this episode.
Prepare to be elevated and enlightened by an extraordinary tale of resilience narrated by one of Canada's most exceptional and fiercely original journalists. Make sure to tune in and experience this unforgettable story.
