Adrian Esposito is a young prolific filmmaker. He is 26 years old and has already made seven films many of which have won awards. Adrian’s films tend to focus on social issues and subjects that have faced significant challenges in life. Diagnosed as having autism as a child, Adrian has faced many challenges of his own. His history includes dealing with many educational and social barriers but he remains positive focusing on his talents and strengths rather than limitations.
“Inspired by his love of film, Adrian began to take classes at The Animation Workshop at Animatus Studio in Rochester when he was 12 years old. This study opened a door for him. He found a way to express himself using the vocabulary and the medium of film,” writes journalist Jim Memmott in an article about Adrian Esposito in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle (Oct 18, 2008). In 2008, Adrian received his certificate in Radio & Television Broadcasting from Monroe #1 BOCES EMCC. He continues to study filmmaking with Animatus Studio.
Adrian feels that his Autism works well with his filmmaking. “People with this disorder tend to hyper focus on an area of interest, my interest area has always been movies,” says Adrian.
Today's episode has us exploring the clergy's place in politics and social issues. The news is hot with information after Donald Trump's meeting with 100 black pastors and religious leaders.

Does minimal involvement in the community equate to being a "spiritual leader?" What message is being conveyed to congregants? Join us as we discuss this issue along with additional news.

On this week's episode we will discuss whether or not athletes should be discussing social issues that are going on in the news. Recently Pro Atheltes in the NBA, and NBA have been protesting the events in Ferguson and New York, and some say that as athlethes shouldn't voice their opinions. What do you think?
We live in interesting times, some say we have gone backwards, racism and bigotry, social inequality, police brutality on an epic scale, religious rights that we once had trickling down the drain. serious issues both at home and globally. Slavery still exists in many countries and here at home the flag of slavery flys high. What we hear from the majority of the ATRs and DTRs is the sound of crickets. As if the social and political has no effect on the spiritual. It seems the very groups most affected by these negative issues in the world have the least to say. In a world that becomes more and more connected every day, there is no escape from these issues, ignoring them will not make them go away. So tonight we will discuss these and many more issues. We welcome your calls as we go down the road less traveled.
