Love it!

It’s rare to find a podcast that brings about such deep conversations on serious topics and still manage to make you laugh out loud. This podcast does both! Highly recommend - a must listen!

Incredible!!

Your July podcasts with Jason Veasey were enlightening, funny, and simply incredible. I loved the open, honest dialogue and how the two of you were educating listeners as you moved from subject. I am the first to admit that I don’t always know how to respond to issues facing the LBGTQ and Persons of color. I am a white CIS male who grey up in a very rural area. I appreciate your straightforward approach, because it allows me to learn, to better understand, and to react more appropriately in situations I am unfamiliar with. Oh, and the theater talk was spot on as well!

Keep up the great work,
Keith
