In this episode of Unspoken, we have the honor of sharing our conversation with James Shaw Jr. — most known for making headlines and becoming a national hero after bravely disarming a gunman in Antioch, Tennessee Waffle House. Determined to turn the tragic course of events into a stepping stone, James is committed to using his voice and personal experience to make a major impact in his community.

The 29-year-old native to Nashville, now known as the “Waffle House Hero,” is currently hosting national meetings and galvanizing global thought leaders to share his community and humanitarian plan to systemically address policy change, and increase efforts to make gun control/ gun violence, mental illness and the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder a national priority. James is currently making appearances and speaking at schools, universities, corporations, conference, etc. on the above issues and recently announced his foundation, The James Shaw Jr. Foundation.

This episode is particularly special because this is James' first podcast interview since the Waffle House event.
