FartNinja ,

A Great Podcast for Local Knowledge

I love this podcast and the communal voices that it highlights. Everything from LGBTQA+, the Black Experience, Pandemic news and entertainment is covered without the constant reminder to subscribe, ad solicitations or product placement that most of the Internet throws at you in exchange for information.

Thanks APL!!!
