    Today, I am talking to Trevor Noah. Trevor is the most successful comedian in Africa and is the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central. Under Trevor, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” has broken free from the restraints of a 30-minute linear show, producing engaging social content, award-winning digital series, podcasts and more for its global audience. He has written, produced, and starred in 11 comedy specials, including his most recent, “Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia,” which launched in November 2018 on Netflix. He is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” and its young readers adaptation “It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which also debuted as a New York Times bestseller.     

    Trevor opens the conversation by sharing what it was like growing up, how he sees the rest of the world, and why it felt like it was okay growing up the way he did. We then exchange thoughts and perspectives on topics such as finding the true meaning of having a ‘home’, the type of friends we often surround ourselves with and why, finding independence in a completely new and foreign place, and being mindful of yourself and in one with your inner thoughts.

Inspiring and Uplifting!!

I love everything about his books, his pod casts and how he relates situations in today's society. It really opens my eyes to everything around me and how to decompress, BREATH and anylyze my behavior. I'm aware of thoughts, my emotions and how I respond to the world around me and the people in it. I always try to hold myself accountable in my marriage and my friendships! He helps me do that in a positive way!

Feeling Connected!

The had the pleasure of seeing Jay in person in Vegas a few months ago and have become a fan. I never really thought that Kendall would be a person I would feel connected to. I just want to express my gratitude to both Jay and Kendall for this episode. I am a 61 year old American male, not someone you would think has a lot in common with them. The fact is there are many similarities in my journey to their journeys. I love this share, thank you both! Steve

Really eloquently explains the “Words of affirmation” person’s point of view

As a person who has struggled to communicate my love language with my wife for so long, this offers a third-person insight into where the desire for the words comes from rather than a vain need to be acknowledged.
