A Must Listen

“What if there’d never been an HIV epidemic?”

Wow. As someone who has a decent understanding of the history of HIV/AIDS this podcast was refreshing. Amplifying the voices of women and QTPOC folx, this podcast provides a critical counter narrative. Exceptionally well done.

Thank you

Very impactful series would love to see you explore other blind spots. I realized listening to the series that I have wounds that have not healed living and caring for pts who had no one else to do so. This could have been easily in Miami where the same set of circumstances occurred in pediatrics, the black and brown communities as well as our gay population.

Thank you
