This podcast brought to my attention the harsh reality of being black in America. I hope they continue to report on this case and others like it.
Really well put together and very informative.
A podcast which must be listened to!
An amazing and well-researched investigation! You made me cry several times this week and all those tears were useful to deeply understand how complex was and still is this US story. All my thoughts and love to Philando's family.
