Insightful material, distracting music

Hey, guys. I love the podcast and the material, but I find the background music is distracting from what y’all are talking about. I kept checking to make sure I didn’t accidentally open a music app while listening to the Social Movements talk. I’m looking forward for more content from the podcast. Please take out or make the backing music quieter.
