Must listen!

Absolutely love this show; the difficult and important topics discussed with contemporary and historical perspectives given should be mandatory listening. All the things I should have learned in school as a child. Great give and take between the hosts and an unbelievable way of keeping kindness and a path forward when discussing incredibly difficult/horrifying facts. Thank you!
