Love this so informative and great guests

As a current social work student Who is Blind I find this podcast extremely informative and relevant in the Socio political climate we live in today
Dave Brown is a funny and witty host and always has very relevant and insightful questions for his guests
Over the past few days I have really enjoyed Joetas contribution wild Dave Brown is off work
She offers somewhat of the same view but at a different angle which is great
Great show, glad I found this one
Glad to lend my ears :)
