Top-Notch Podcast!

I love his voice, value his perspective, learn from his sharing. I’m a middle-class white woman and nurse who grew up in the Appalachian region of the US. My father is racist. I never was racist, but lacked exposure, and the unknowns defaulted to fear every time I encountered black culture. Today, thanks to Trymaine Lee and others who were willing to share about the journey of being black in America, I don’t default to fear and feel deep respect. I can do my part to acknowledge the truth and commit to teaching my grandson to be more open to, respectful of and grateful for diversity. Thank you, “Into America”, for being a regular part of my unfolding learning.

Smart, educational, inspiring podcast!

Thank you, Brother Tremaine Lee for telling the multivalent stories of this complex country. You provide a calm, reasoned, voice to our otherwise uncivil, hate-filled discourse!

More Nola, please

I’ve been listening from the beginning and enjoy the variety of topics, even though some are hard to hear.
Your show is one of several that I listen to regularly to help me understand being Black in America; and how as a white woman in her 60’s, doesn’t get it, but because of shows like yours, I’m trying to get there!
Thanks for your good work and……. More Nola, please!
