Hello! And Good News! This weeks good news guest is Peter Banifaz. Peter is an an actor and an improviser. So insanely funny and wonderful. If you live in Los Angeles you can see Peter on Harold Night at the UCB Theater with the team Queen George. They knock it out of the park on a regular basis. You can also catch him on Season 8 of Shameless. I have a new couch, and it’s blue, but Peter and I hang out on it and talk about:
Jahmal Cole, who started the non-profit My Block, My Hood, My City
which works to provide underprivileged youth in the Chicago area with opportunities and education beyond their neighborhoods. Clean Slate
a program in the Presbyterian Night Shelter in Fort Worth Texas that provides the homeless with the opportunity for paying work through the shelter and eventually successful job placement. Salvador Gomez Colon
- a fifteen year old who is delivering 100’s of solar lamps to those in Puerto Rico who are still without power.
Peter was originally born in Tehran, Iran. We talk about some of the protests currently going on there against the current regime specifically the women who have been standing up and are currently known as The Girls of Revolution Street
Peter’s own story is amazing and we wrap up the episode talking about finding the light despite living through negative experiences.
