The Inclusion Show with Wallace Ford jannice and vinnie

Welcome to The Inclusion Show!

Welcome to Inclusion, the show that includes you, our viewers, and where different points of view and perspectives are presented for your consideration. Hosted by Wallace Ford and now in its third season, the Inclusion Show is intended to take on the contemporary topics that matter today and include its audience in its discussions.   In addition to Wallace Ford’s Point of View blog commentary, each episode of Inclusion features Wallace in conversation with guests who represent different walks of life, political views and career perspectives. The Inclusion Show concept seeks to include its viewers while challenging – not attacking its guests, as Wallace Ford seeks to get them to give their own unedited and unfiltered views on what they do and what they would like to see happen in this world. By getting the guests to speak about their own view of their own lives, careers and the world around them Wallace Ford tries to make the promise of The Inclusion Show – one on which the viewer can rely, show after show, week after week.
