Great entertainment w/education

I could listen to Elaine Brown forever. This was the first time I ever heard her and I learned so much and want to learn more. I don’t have a strong opinion on Rebecca’s storyline with the twins, I go back and forth, but that’s my thought, not indicative of the show.

I would be down for Shant’e having her own podcast duking it out with her bougie white dude narrator. I love her. She is a blend of innocent child just trying to make it through her traumatic life, but still tough and surviving. She is my favorite character.
