Excellent

Very timely podcast and gives a robust conversation around diversity from so many angles. Cuts through the echo chamber of social media and actually teaches you about diversity of thought.

Wow! I love these podcasts from Adam’s team. Well done to all who are involved. These topics are in front of more hearts and minds more than ever. I have had so many “aha” and “uh oh” moments and I’ve only listened to 3 episodes. Keep ‘em coming Adam.
