The trio willbring their diverse perspectives to spark unique discussions about today’s most critical issues by engaging in thought-provoking conversations about a variety of topics –- from where they would go if they ever left the U.S. to addressing rumors that have been spread about them to their thoughts on the grind and productivity culture.
