If you've ever wanted to have a conversation about race but were afraid of saying the wrong thing, or not being heard or trivialized, this podcast is for you.
Everyday Conversations on Race is a cross-race conversation on race. It brings people together across differences for open comfortable conversations about race in a casual setting.
This is crucial for organizations and businesses that want to build cultures of inclusion that support diversity, equity and innovation.

This podcast is so wonderful. Simma has a great gift for becoming a true affirmer of each guest, so that hard topics are made available, defenses are down, doors of understanding are opened and a way for true conversation to take place is modeled. You will learn about so much cool stuff too!
Simma also facilitates conversations in the workplace to create doors where walls exist, and I can only imagine these are life changing for the corporate culture. Really...do yourself a favor and tune in,
I love the tactical, honest and real rawness Simma delivers in this podcast. I hit subscribe and definitely can’t wait for the next show!!!
