Fly Brother With Ernest White II

I was very excited to see my friend Ernest, Fly Brother, launching his travel show this coming May 1, 2020. I sat down with him and we chatted about it. Here’s how it went. I hope you like it and get a chance to watch the show if it’s in your viewing area.

Note that he was on his phone and bandwidth was not so good, so I had to do an audio call with him. I’ve added some photos in the interview though to help break it up a bit.
