Brilliant. But first...RELEVANT!

This podcast has so much amazing material from a diverse background of scholars, it’s hard to get bored. Feeling enriched every time I listen. Thank you to Lev and his guests for giving light to the liberation of all through examining the platforms that supplant domestic and international colonialism and exploitation of women and people of color.

Smart people talking about smart things. I’m learning about things that open my eyes to what’s going on in the world around me. Very organic and easy to listen to.

Please adjust volume levels between the opening music and vocals!
