Insightful and informative podcast!

Love this podcast! Leonydus is talking about actual issues plaguing our county today and seeking answers and solutions, while most others are virtue signaling to further their own specific narratives. I have scrubbed my social media of celebs and replaced them with people like Leonydus. My new heroes! Thanks for all you’re doing. ❤️

Being Black In America

Leonydus has produced a phenomenal podcast with Informed Dissent. The content is truly thought provoking and profoundly excellent. He communicates his perspective in a way that even my kids can comprehend the topics of discussion, and in a society that would condition our children to view our country—even the world—in the negative light of a “victim’s mentality” for ALL Black people, this is lands with perfect timing for my family.

Thank you, Mr. Johnson! You’re reaffirming that it IS okay to be Black in America without succumbing to the narrative of what it means to be stereotyped as being Black in America.
