Some of my Best Friends are Black and Love this Podcast

When Todd says that this is a therapeutic podcast, he means it. Listening to these guys have helped open up my eyes to things that I see everyday but pay no attention to when it comes to being a black man. I love the energy that they share too. It’s truly an organic podcast in which they feed off one another. I will be listening in the future.
