Finally No Screaming

I'm thrilled to be able to listen to a podcast on this sensitive topic where people are actually discussing and debating without screaming at each other. Great work Simma!

Coffee Talk

I could only open up to Simma and Svea on the subject of race (and class) because I felt comfortable around them - it didn't take long; that's how they are. These topics have been touchy for me, and are only discussed between close family members and friends (and sometimes joked about). Simma and Svea are insightful, and being asked to share my p.o.v. on this show, sparked a courage within myself that was dormant. Most importantly, the weight of stigma and taboo has started to shed from me: transformative. Thank you.
