    Muhammad Muwakil of Freetown Collective on What it Means to be Free

    Bob Marley sang ... “when music hits you, you feel no pain”. The Caribbean has a new timeless musical sound, musical medicine, for our generation, coming from Freetown Collective in Trinidad and Tobago which resonates with the greats that came before.

DocTico ,

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.

Great content, but production quality needs work

Please adjust volume levels between the opening music and vocals!
