A must listen!

This podcast series is phenomenal look at a current crisis that we face in this state and in the country. It asks us to listen to multiple perspectives, to learn about all of the players in the controversial issue of police shootings, police brutality, the killing of police officers, justice and the recent CA assembly bills that have tried to come to some compromise. As a high school teacher I found this series to be so refreshing because I could actually use it and feel that it isn’t bias.
