    712: Nice White Parents

    Years ago, producer Chana Joffe-Walt started reporting on one school in New York. She thought the story was about segregation and inequality in public schools. But the more she looked into it, the more she realized she was witnessing something else. She was seeing the inordinate power of white parents at this school. This is the first episode of Chana’s new mini-series: Nice White Parents.

    709: The Reprieve

    Michigan has passed its Covid-19 peak, and the state has started opening up. But it’s still been intensely difficult for the staff in the ICU at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. We've embedded with them over the past few months, and tracked how this pandemic has changed them and their city.

    708: Here, Again

    708: Here, Again

    An exhaustingly familiar story. Maybe it’ll have a different ending this time, but maybe not. We hear what different people said and did one weekend in reaction to the killing of George Floyd.

Fantastic podcast

I love this podcast so much. It beautifully focusses on the humanity that we all have in common. No matter the topic.

Since so much vocal fry is going on in the show, why not an episode on vocal fry ?

This racism life

TAL turned from a Hallmark of fascinating radio into an activist station that only focuses on one side of America: the identity politics loving left. Victimhood is the anchor on which more than half of the stories focus. Again and again it’s black vs white. Black is always good, white is always bad. Pathetic.
