beautiful voices & beautiful work
I listened to the podcast with Liz Kleinrock, @teachandtransform, and I became hooked. I learn so much from this podcast and these voices are so necessary to hear. We’ve needed to hear this for eons. Thank you!!!
Not all skin folk is kinfolk
It’s extremely disheartening to see and hear that one of their guests was treated with such disregard and then decided to “lawyer up” while being called out on their disdain. All it took was simple communication of the next steps for their episode. Do better, be better.
An essential addition to the growing influence of Asians in America and around the world. Jerry Won is a solid host and a great conversationalist. And funny. So extra points for yuan. OK, I was typing “that,” and — no joke — it autocorrected to the Chinese currency. Wow, Apple. Is this a cry for help from a factory? Alright, this went off the rails.
