Amir Odom (@amirxodom) is a public speaker committed to providing objective truth, and giving people the tools they need to rationally share their opinion. He initially started to gain traction for his more conservative takes on his instagram, which eventually led to him meeting President Trump, and participating in a Prager U video on YouTube that now has over a million views, which might surprise many of you since he is both black and gay. But only a couple years ago, Amir was the complete opposite. He was a very left leaning, BLM supporter who had his world shaken up after just a few instances in his life.

Today, I talk to him about:

His upbringing and how his failed suicide attempts changed him

What made him start leaning more towards the conservative side of the political spectrum

How he has handled criticism throughout his life

Why critical thinking is dying

Why I disagree with some of his political beliefs
