S1 E1 The Three-Legged Elephant Publishing Co
Originally from Denver Colorado, Malcolm has lived on both coasts. He loves motorcycles, cars, pretty much anything with an engine and wheels. He is a semi-retired class A welder/mechanic. Tired of working for others and being a natural born hands-on person, he opened a car repair service in Colorado that ventured went well and paid bills until he got tired of hiding dirty finger nails every time he was away from the shop. Until he discovered writing, his favorite thing to do was to fix, repair and tinker with any kind of mechanical gadget. He has built several high-performance motorcycles and restored classic cars, then one day he woke up and said "I’m going to reinvent myself". Malcom took some time off and wrote his first published novel, sold everything and moved to California. Soon after he moved across the nation and published his second novel and his first children’s book.
While launching The Three-Legged Elephant Publishing Co., Malcolm joined the Screen Actors Guild as an actor and was honored with a nomination in the Best Supporting Role category at the Softies Short Film Awards. He is in the process of filming his first movie based on his book "One Way In No Way Out".

S1 E4 • Quote The Culture
Valerie Thomas is an Education based Project Manager living in Atlanta, Georgia. As the owner of Quote the Culture, LLC, Valerie is also an education blogger and consultant. She
believes that paying homage to the ancestors is the highest form of praise. Most of the journals in her series, HipHopIsms are nods to the ancestors of both literature and music. HipHopIsms are phrases from songs, movies, memes, or Black authors that have inspired the culture. A few of the journals include positive affirmations for daily meditation.
Valerie is also the founder of a popular blog, Teach Them Hope. The blog is centered on the idea that students need strong educators and a healthy dose of hope in order to excel! Valerie, an adjunct professor for over 12 years, worked music and specifically hip hop into each of her courses. By exploring this form of popular culture, Valerie feels that this line of
journals will inspire positive conversations and encourage more people to “Quote the Culture”.
Valerie is a proud alumna of both Howard University and Columbia University. Also, a true daughter of the south, Valerie is a native of Georgia and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
