Timely and valuable topics
This podcast presents a variety of important and interesting topics in the DEI world. I’ve learned a lot of things listening to this podcast, and I enjoy how the format is centred into a deep dive around just one question, rather than trying to cover too many things in one session. The 20ish-minute format means I can listen to a podcast in one go - I love listening to Dr. Horne’s interviews while I walk my dog!
