The Corporate Wokeplace with Stephanie Kaplan

What do you do when “Woke” culture is forced upon you at work? One thing you might do is fight back like Stephanie Kaplan did. She is the founder and voice behind Corporate Wokeplace, a website dedicated to fighting the encroaching Woke culture on the American workplace. In this episode, Jim Stroud and Stephanie Kaplan discuss lowering standards to achieve equity, skin color as a job qualifier and how companies who get woke ultimately go broke. Oh, yes, we went there. Tune in for a very though-provoking episode.

ABOUT MY GUEST 

Stephanie Kaplan has worked in Corporate Human Resources leadership for  over 25 years. Her experience is primarily in Fortune 100 companies,  such as Starbucks, Walgreens and Target. Over the course of her career, she noticed a steady increase in Corporate “Wokeism.” Concepts such as Corporate Social Responsibility  started out with good intentions but then became tools of the social  justice warriors. Diversity training, that once had the goal to include  all voices, now has morphed into segregation and shaming of white  people. Employee Resource Groups, initially designed as an opportunity  for racial groups to share their culture with others, have now become  combative and discriminatory. Stephanie founded Corporate Wokeplace as a  way to fight back against the insanity in Corporate America.

How To Be Gay and Conservative with Lady MAGA

Truly, truly, truly you cannot judge a book by its cover! I had a long and interesting conversation with the drag artist – Lady MAGA. I walked away thinking that I met a truly courageous person. It is challenging enough to come out as gay but, to complement that by also identifying as a Conservative? Wow. We talked at length about the societal and economic impact of his decision to leave the left, patriotism, big tech censorship and the attacks on the freedoms we take for granted in America. Such a positive person despite the tragedies in his life. #Impressed Lady MAGA is one strong soul. Tune in to hear what I mean. 

ABOUT MY GUEST

Ryan Woods, AKA Lady MAGA USA, is a proud Eagle Scout, America-first  Republican, Christian, and political activist. He’s an award-winning  journalist with a background in mass communication and video production.  He’s President of Log Cabin Republicans Utah and is working to save his  state from a leftist takeover. He uses drag artistry to defy the  radical LGBTQIA+ movement which pushes a dangerous agenda such as  hormone injections for children, “drag kids,” sexually explicit “Pride  Parades” and overt persecution of traditional families and religious  Conservatives. His artistry is meant to be fun, uplifting, and  inspiring—not vulgar or degrading, as is the case with most mainstream  “Drag Queens.”  Lady Maga USA hosts a weekly podcast, creates online content, organizes  events, fights for Conservative legislation, writes articles and more.

A Civilized Discussion on Violence with Trent Gadner

Trent Gadner and I had no set agenda which is why its fascinating me how we ended up focused on weapons, martial arts, society’s view of men and the need for a manly rite of passage in our country. This was certainly one of my favorite conversations and I think it will be one of yours. Don’t miss it.

What is woke culture doing to our children?

I just had a delightful conversation with children’s author – Bracha Goetz. in our conversation we discussed her liberal upbringing and the events that caused her to become conservative. We also touched base on advice she would have given her younger self, when she was a very progressive activist. I also ask her to chime in on how Hasbro is promoting critical race theory with its products and how actions like it are affecting our children. If you want to feel inspired by a breath of fresh air, I highly suggest you tune into today’s episode.
