Backseat Rider

R&B star Brandy and her boyfriend, Sir the Baptist, end up in the back seat of Anthony's Lyft, leading to a wide-ranging follow-up to last week's discussion about passion. The two artists speak candidly about: the lowest moments in their careers, how they discovered their authentic selves, the songwriting process, and where music comes from. The conversation ends with some encouraging words for Anthony and other people pursuing their dreams in life. (Anthony returns to "everyday" passengers next week)

In a romantic relationship, have you ever "settled" for someone? On the flip side, have you ever felt like you were "reaching" (i.e. dating "up")? This past week, a woman broke up with Anthony's good friend. Right after the breakup, his friend said, "in relationships, there are two kinds of people: reachers and settlers. Maybe I need to stop being a reacher." In this episode, Anthony explores this theory with his passengers, leading to some insightful stories about why some relationships fail, while others succeed.
