Great topics and discussion

This is a great show for giving people from different backgrounds and professions a platform to speak and share. I also enjoy Aminatou and Anne and their energy and relationship.

Always insightful

Aminatou and Ann always address topical issues from unique angles, engaging in political discussions in an accessible and captivating way. I especially enjoyed the recent ‘media reckoning’ episode as it closely related to current efforts within my workplace to force the company into action on diversity. Thanks for the advice!
