S2E8: Spike Lee and Enneagram Type 1 (Part 1)

Mario, TJ are joined by special guest Milton Stewart, an Enneagram facilitator, teacher, and coach, as they explore Enneagram Type One, “Striving to Feel Perfect,” through Spike Lee’s films and the director himself. Starting with “Do the Right Thing,” they discuss the prolific director’s approach in exploring race relations, urban crime, and other political issues. 

“Anger is an emotion of the One, and it’s a different kind of anger than we see in the Eight.” - Mario Sikora [16:40]

“It’s not something that is necessarily widely known, but he has been very consistent in making sure that there’s a lot of Black people behind the scenes in his movies as well as in front of the camera.” - TJ Dawe [31:15]

“How it ends literally gives you the moral of what we should be thinking about and doing. To look at dealing with things when it comes to violence and how to actually solve problems and issues.” - Milton Stewart [44:29]
