love the content but probuct is lacking
its a good listen except the audio is really poor. i am constantly adjusting the volume which sometimes stops me from listening. if they would fix the audio it would be 5 stars
Content is excellent. Audio needs a lot of improvement.
No clue about systemic racism
I wish you did more work on the systemic racism in the US. You painted a much rosier picture than many nonwhite, or people in poverty experience daily.
