It started with a fifth grade class pet. The chinchilla that nipped at all the other fifth graders was tame when handled by Landon. After choosing to leave college football and plans for a professional career, he continued his studies, focused on the sciences and is now a veterinarian. He's my very own canine companion's veterinarian.

He's a Midwesterner whose childhood was primarily spent in St. Louis, Missouri and Minneapolis, Minnesota. After also living in Colorado and Virginia, he currently resides in my hometown, Long Beach, California.

Landon has an adventurous spirit. He hikes, bikes and has a strong interest in Japanese culture.

Landon's favorite song: Sara Smile by Hall and Oates.

Landon's favorite words: An idle mind is the devil's workshop.

About this podcast: In each episode, a Brother reflects on his life; explores the experience of being a Black man in America; shares his interactions with law enforcement; and answers the question "If America was a woman, what would you say to her?"

Every interview starts with getting-to-know-you questions about favorites, accomplishments and then goes deeper. You won't find a collection of conversations with Black men like this anywhere else. Hear their wisdom.
