Prosper Ishimwe, 28, is a Rwandan genocide survivor. He’s currently seeking asylum in the United States. He tells his story, the whole story, for the very first time to Jake.
The inciting incident, the propaganda and politics, fleeing from his home during a night time raid, seeing his mother for the last time, running from gun fire, scaling dead bodies, crossing rivers at night and the execution of his grandfather and cousin point blank in front of him. All before his 9th birthday.
And: the love, humanity and healing that comes when one has the opportunity to share their story. For the very first time.

Bob Fuller x Youngest US University President x Rankism, The Dignity Movement, Making Race History Aand Being Kind
Bob Fuller was the youngest (age 34) University president in US history at Oberlin College. He earned a Ph.D in Physics at 23. Although we’re fifty years apart in age, we agree we’re kindred spirits.We talked about what it means to become a somebody (Rankism) and then fall from grace (shame). After leaving the presidency at Oberlin, Bob became what he calls a “nobody.” The phone stopped ringing. No one wanted to have lunch. Bob told me that as occassional nobodies, we must stand up and realize we have nothing to lose except for the shame that got us there in the first place.Then President Jimmy Carter called. Then the USSR. Then Werner Erhard. Life is constantly in ebb and flow.I loved the story of how Bob made history not only as the youngest president, but then pushed his board to vote 6-to-4 to authorize the first black head of athletics in history.Bob is in his 70s now, and the conversation and stories of the life he’s lived is simply extraordinary.Enjoy Bob as much as I did. Jake.Bob Fuller: “Dealing with racism at the college athletic level felt like war. I thought that if we didn’t win this thing, we won’t win as a country.”The Jake Sasseville Show is co-executive produced by Vivienne Kelly and Gregory Stutzer. Produced by Michael Howard Nathanson.

Susan Blond On Her BFF Andy Warhol, Representing Michael Jackson, Ozzy And Tina Turner And NYC Over The Last Fifty Years
Susan Blond is a legend. BFFs with Andy Warhol, who she told me was an expert in PR and publicity before it became a profession, Susan has represented Michael Jackson, The Clash, Joan Jett, Meatloaf, James Brown, Ozzy, Cindy Lauper, Sade, Tina Turner, Morrissey, Julio Iglesias, Boston, Luther Vandross and me. She was my first publicist and we would often attend events together.
People, she told me, are fundamentally fascinating if you give them enough space and time to talk. She talks about Michael Jackson’s naivite and asexuality, what’s inspiring her these days and what turns her on these days.
A class act, I loved my conversation with Susan Blond and am touched that she agreed to sit down and talk. If you want a glimpse into NYC nightlife and artlife from the 1960s to today and how popculture has become so damn popular, look no further.

Kweku Mandela is the grandson of Nelson Mandela. He and I are both 29 years old and we’re both men. That’s where you’d expect the similiarities to end. Not true.
I loved my conversation with Kweku, who shared with me that beneath his grandfather’s steely determination, Mr. Nelson had reservations about assuming the roles that were thrust upon him.
Kweku talked about the challenges in his relationship with his dad (something I identify with personally) and how he healed it. We talk about an incredible documentary film he released (“Beyond Right and Wrong”) and how forgiveness in action is a big part of his life, based on what his granddad taught him.
Ironically, Kweku grew up in Amherst, Mass. before moving back to South Africa when his granddad became president. He became a filmmaker and travels the world. I’m impressed with how connected and rooted Kweku is despite having a last name that is globally recognized as a symbol of justice, equality and dignity.
