Great podcast!

As a black immigrant, convert, in an interracial marriage, I find this podcast so informative and relatable. I’ve learnt so much about Black History & LDS history. Great job, please keep it going!!!

Misguided to say the least

This podcast does not add any value to society or the individual, but merely wants to focus on the bad. It is sad how seductive and addictive victim culture is. Hopefully they can find their way some how.

Best Podcst for LDS church.

Opening my eyes to how much LDS don’t know about some parts of American History. Followed from Instagram and wanted more content but not have to get on tiktok for it LOL
