Blindspot- The Plague in the Shadows

Remembering and telling an untold history of people who could have been forgotten. Simply brilliant and a compelling listen. A must for anyone who cares about what destruction HIV/AIDS wrought.

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.
