The Human Kind Podcast is a new 12-part podcast series hoping to shine an intelligent, peaceful, informative light on race relations throughout the country. We record at the iconic Delicious Vinyl Radio studio in the heart of Los Angeles. This is a grassroots, informational piece that pairs various members of the community including rap artists, political refugees, race relations specialists and stay-at-home moms discussing race per their own experiences and opinions.
