Absolutely Brilliant

I so appreciate the opportunity to listen, learn and laugh along individuals that are brilliant, captivating and unapologetically REAL. The discussion of politics, history, pop culture and news (global and local) has exposed me to not only opportunities to learn but dope shows, music etc. recommend 100% !

Episode 127

I am white, grew up in SE USA, lived and studied in Middle East, and spent 20 yrs in Chicago, where I got a PhD in a subject that relied on understanding global colonial power. This is the BEST and most helpful discussion I have ever heard about racism. Thanks!
