Much needed podcast focusing on things that matter to US!

I’m so happy to have a podcast that is focusing on things that are important and matter to US! I absolutely love the theme song. Though it was recorded years ago the message still rings true now more than ever with Black Lives Matter, as we navigate this pandemic , women’s rights and just how we are treated, in general. I can’t wait to see where the episodes take us!
