Fathers of the Movement

This is a must listen. These men grieve as much as the mothers but are often overlooked.

So entertaining, also informative and heartwarming

I typically only listen to comedy podcasts that dip into politics and pop culture, but Into America is an epic genre buster for me. Even if an episode’s subject matter is grim there’s an uplifting element both to Trymaine’s passion about sharing knowledge on the topic, and also his glee from giving a platform to his interviewees. I just started listening a few months ago so now Im catching up in reverse. TIP: if you’re eve having a bad day or the weather is gloomy listen to the “Black Joy In The Summertime” episode - and get ready for your spirits to be lifted. My only note is I wish the episodes were longer!
