"Code Switch" for adult minds

"Created Equal" is wonderfully produced and touches on difficult topics with finesse. Though there are only a handful of episodes out, they have all been fantastic and I have high hopes for future shows. This is some of the most sophisticated and informative storytelling about the intersections of race, inequality and injustice: perfect for the current turn of American politics. Also, the sound and music are phenomenal.

Greatness!

I love a good story to set up the facts that are being presented and this podcast did just that! The music is phenomenal and the show is perfectly scored to keep you intrigued and thinking about what's next. Definitely looking forward to more episodes!

Keep it up guys!

I'm listening to 'The Kiss' now, and am really impressed. Please keep up the good work. This is such an important issue that needs to be dealt with in depth, as it appears you guys are preparing to do. There's no better time I can think of for a podcast like this than now.
