Social Understanding on Hard Mode

I cannot believe just how much I’ve learnt through this podcast… raw, confronting at times, but in all inspires people to see the world through the eyes of others who are vilified, extremely misunderstood, or harshly discriminated against, as well as celebrates people being human.
I love the fact that the conversation revolves around shame and how that dictates every day life, and this beautiful ongoing discussion embodies healing and recognition in the way of acknowledging the sum of our parts without the superficial aesthetic pursuit.
Thank you Jameela.

Thank you Jameela
