The format of the show is an informal conversation that Teodrose has with the audience. The show will be at once topical and reflective where Teodrose will talk about the intersection of politics, culture, and faith all of which are interconnected by love. Ghion Journal and Ghion Cast are the songs of revolution, not a revolution of bullets but a revolution of our minds and our hearts.
