He also shares insights into his consulting work for poets and artrepreneurs in the Philadelphia area.

Listeners will gain insights into the importance of artistic expression in addressing social issues and personal growth, as well as Lindo's experiences as an event host and organizational team member for local Philadelphia open mics.
