Good story telling but missed some marks for me

I’m all about long form podcast that center black folks. Great topic and interviews. a couple things I think were missing: a deeper race and class analysis. The episode 5 dived deep into the business class and the conclusion was basically “well ultimately racism” but if black wealthy folks are making the decision to keep other black folks out flesh that out more. The other is overall lack of black women voices. Even the last episode was a reflection on how white women claim
Atlanta in a real way. Black women were mostly relegated to stories about strippers and sexual assault.

Addicting.

Being a 90’s baby I literally ate every second of this up about the history of Atlanta and Freaknik.

Love the meandering story here...

Well told, good arc. Kind of stoney pony but still enjoyable. Truly a discourse.
