Authentic perspective

I really enjoy and benefit from Dr. Janice Gassam’s authenticity. While I appreciate when a podcast confirms or expands on what I already know and believe, and this podcast offers that. The real value of this podcast to me is the aha moments aplenty when I find myself saying I don’t know about that or I didn’t know that. A clear sign I need to expand the voices I’m hearing. A generous labor of care that challenges me to think outside the majority box.

Beautifully Blessed! ,

Pure excellence

Dr. Gassam is a refreshing voice for the difficult topics. I find this podcast completely binge worthy! I appreciate her guidance in dismantling my whiteness, as I commit to re-learning, listening and loving.

Needed revelation of the need for multi-cultural alliances

You give a reliable and reverent voice to this frontline issue. In a culture, where color is race and the power to change that lives in our individual actions. After hearing your words, a personal lack of cultural awareness must be intentional.
