A must-listen when you’re ready to listen

Moving forward from awareness, into informing and educating myself, and onwards to being actively anti racist is a journey I need to take. Nova is the *best* guide and companion. Thank you Nova, and your guests, for the truth, and compassion and connection. This podcast helps make worlds better, and people better.

Grateful for this podcast on my path of anti racism

Thank you Nova for your loving, patient teaching, and for your clear and direct challenging and identifying of racism, privilege and white superiority. Your quote ‘Ego and anti racism do not get on’ I felt in my gut. This podcast is an essential and much appreciated companion to ‘doing my work’. Thank you for all you do.
