Anthony Jai Robbins (born Anthony J. Mahavoric; February 29, 1960) is an American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach.
“Let’s create not only some healing here but some real change. … Change is automatic, but progress is not. And so this is a conversation today to see if we can create some progress. … What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?” – Tony Robbins   It’s been over three months since the death of George Floyd, the unarmed, 46-year-old black man, who was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death, and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around race supremacy in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face. The aftermath of George Floyd’s death — and combined stacking of others like Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and most recently the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis.  — has brought this nation to a threshold. With thousands of people around the world in grief, humanity is speaking loud and clear: enough is enough, the time is now to create real change rooted in our nation’s foundation of ‘justice for all.’ Beyond change, we need progress. As Tony said in the first episode of this special two-part podcast series, change is automatic – but progress is not. The conversation continues. In this 2-hour episode, Tony hosts a panel of five unique, multi-generational leaders who share their experience of what it is to be Black in America and lend their voice to what we, as a unified society, need to listen to and hear, to unite, to make progress, and ultimately to tap into love, compassion, and our deep connection to one another. “If love is not yet won, the battle is not yet over.” – Martin Luther King III Part 2 Guests:    Charlamagne tha God (Radio show host, author, influencer) Rev. Jesse Jackson (Civil rights activist, former aide to Martin Luther King, Jr.) Barbara Becnel (Journalist, film producer, prison reform advocate) Van Jones (Author, television host) Derrick Johnson (President and CEO of the NAACP)
“Our hope is to have you panelists share your experiences of what this is all about. What do you want all of us – maybe who have not had these experiences – to know, but also to appreciate. And most importantly, what can we do to make real progress? It’s really not about pointing fingers here. What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?” – Tony Robbins On May 25, George Floyd, an unarmed, 46 year old black man, was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around racism in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face at the hands of police and law enforcement.  The aftermath of George Floyd’s death – on top of the stacking of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, and Eric Garner just to name a few other horrific losses – has brought this nation to a threshold. As thousands of people have come together around the world with heavy hearts, humanity is speaking loud and clear: Enough is enough, the time is now to create real, lasting change. Beyond change, we need progress. As you’ll hear Tony say in this episode, change is automatic – but progress is not. In this 3-hour episode, Tony hosts a historic conversation with ten unique leaders who share their experience of what it is to be black America and lend their voice to what we – as a unified society – need to do at this pivotal moment to collectively unite, make progress, and ultimately tap into love, compassion, and connection to one another.  Podcast guests include: Martin Luther King III (Global human rights leader), Benjamin Crump (George Floyd’s family lawyer), Lora King (Founder & Executive Director, The Rodney King Foundation), Officer Gomez (11-year veteran of the police force), Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin’s mother), Doc Rivers (Head Coach, Los Angeles Clippers), Bishop T.D.

On March 11, 2020, people all over the world were thrust into a new reality when the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic. It was as if the globe had ground to a halt as businesses closed, schools shuttered, and stay-at-home orders emptied city streets. Thousands of lives have been lost; all lives have been changed.  Over the past two months, despite these uncertain and unprecedented circumstances, there have been shining examples of goodness and triumphs of the human spirit solidifying the fact that we as a species are both adaptable and resilient. Scientists around the globe have aligned their focus to find solutions to this challenge of historic proportions, and groundbreaking discoveries have been made. Everyday, we continue to make progress in quelling the impact of this virus and protecting our loved ones at risk.  Unfortunately, much of the COVID-19 news comes to us clouded by the business of mass media which built momentum selling us a narrative of fear.  In this episode, Tony goes on a journey to uncover the truth about coronavirus with a 7-person panel of highly qualified researchers, an experienced epidemiologist, a Nobel Laureate, and M.D.s testing and treating patients on the frontlines. Together, they reveal the evidence-based research that has come to light and the emerging facts that you’re not hearing in the headlines that are absolutely crucial in shaping decisions about how to move forward.  This is one of the most important interviews that Tony has conducted in his 40+ year career. It reminds us to stand guard at the door of our mind, practice discernment when determining trustworthy sources, and think critically for ourselves in order to stay flexible and maintain the ability to pivot in light of new information – especially when lives depend on it.  Podcast panelists in this episode include:  Dr. Michael Levitt, PhD, Nobel Prize – Chemistry; Professor of Structural Biology, Stanford University  Dr. Eran Bendavid, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, Stanford University  Dr. Michael Roizen, M.D., Chief Wellness Officer Emeritus, Cleveland Clinic Dr. Alan Preston, Sc.D, Former Professor of Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Texas A&M University Senator Scott Jensen, M.D., Family Physician; Senator (R-Minnesota)  Dr. Dan Erickson, M.D., Co-Owner, Accelerated Urgent Care Dr. Artin Massihi, M.D., Co-Owner, Accelerated Urgent Care EPISODE NOTES: [00:00:00] Introduction from Tony Robbins [00:08:30] Interview with Dr. Michael Levitt [00:27:00] Interview with Senator Scott Jensen, M.D. [00:39:00] Interview with Dr. Eran Bendavid, M.D [00:49:30] Interview with Dr. Alan Preston, Sc.D [01:17:30] Interview with Dr. Michael Roizen, M.D. [01:38:00] Interview with Dr. Dan Erickson, M.D. [01:45:30] Interview with Dr. Artin Massihi, M.D. [01:55:25] Round-Robin discussion [02:34:20] Tony’s closing comments
