One of my favs

This podcast exemplifies excellence in legal commentary and social discourse. It meets the objective of informing us, entertaining us, and offering a captivating blend of legal analysis and cultural insight. It’s dope. That’s just my opinion. She tackles topics fearlessly. I love that. She breaks down the law into digestible segments and makes the concept of law accessible, like Obama did politics during his administration. I can listen to Eboni all day. The production quality is also top- notch. I play these episodes on the way to my office in the morning. Dustin is an amazing bonus. The duo makes it a true gem and I hope they record new episodes soon. Before finding this pod, I dreaded my morning commutes in LA traffic. More episodes pleeeeeease!

Mind blowing and eye-opening

As a man of not so much color (white), this podcast has completely changed my view of the world and refocused the lens in which I see the world, especially in the US. I think every white person should listen to this podcast. You may personally have not had a hand in creating where we are as a society today, but you (at a minimum) have the responsibility and civic duty to educate yourself on how we got here. Eboni and Dustin talk about what it's like to live in America as a person of color, the issues facing the black community, and it has literally changed my life. Educate yourself. Listen. Its our responsibility. Bet on black, I certainly am. Much love to you both. Thank you for creating content that can truly bring about change.
