Yes I read reviews first!

I was really looking forward to hearing this podcast but so many reviews said the narrator interjected with comments like, “Mr Rogers was too good to be white...” Wow! Really? If that isn’t a racist comment then I don’t know what is. I won’t support anything like that! Love is what Jesus was about and love is what I remember Mr Rogers being about. Disappointing!

Wow! Love this!

This podcast is so timely and important right now. I have listened to it and taken notes and listened to it again...It’s just that good and thought provoking. This isn’t about politics, religion or race. It’s about humanity and we should all strive to be better humans every day.

I wanted to like this

Mr. Rogers is one of my favorite humans to walk the earth. I was excited to see this podcast as a suggestion. While the concept is great, the opinions were not.
