Dr. Judi The People's Advocate Talks Brains Not Bullets With Orrin "Checkmate" Hudson

David Llada
Orrin Hudson

Dr. Judi The People's Advocate returns Saturday, August 19 at 7:30 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK with a compelling discussion about how chess can help young people learn mental discipline;  and, an attitude to help them overcome obstacles in life. Hudson provides chess lessons and motivational support for young people across the country as part of his organization besomeone.org. His story ranges from a hard upbringing and youthful gang behavior to time as a state trooper and then the catalytic moment that caused him to devote his life to teaching chess to at-risk kids.
