While in college Ralph Monroe, III took a course on Blaxploitation. At the end of the course, the professor gave an impassioned speech to the students encouraging them to be cognizant of the legacy they leave behind. His words lead to Ralph discovering his purpose.

In addition to being an entrepreneur and podcaster, Ralph is also a poet and musician. Originally from Alton, Illinois, he currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.

And, this first day after the Derek Chauvin guilty verdicts, this episode includes stories of good cops.

Favorite movie: Gladiator.
