Coulda been five
Really enjoyable listen, but the host’s slang attempts made me cringe every single time.
Listened for a Morehouse college project, enjoyed the corny aspect makes me laugh especially with the author embracing the fact that he is a black yankee from Michigan and him aiming to truly understand and get to know the culture he wasn’t able to be exposed to. Touched on many enjoyable topics from the history culture of atlanta, auc, and the many inspirational events for black culture that occurred.
I love my City
But this dude is kinda corny
