Great Show!

I love how you all make the episode really insightful and interesting and fun! I listen to this on my way to school! I find the “pop culture” section of these series a great opportunity to learn more about something already popular. Thank you Imani and Kam and Guests, keep it up!

Great Content not a fan of a recurring guest

As a casual listener I love Imani. I think she has so much great content and love to share about mental wellness. I think she has poignant content based on her experiences. I will say I’m not a fan of one of her recurring guests who tends to steer away from the topic.
