Add this to your podcast list

A great podcast in an interview format. Highlights research/publications that have their lens focused on the experience of Black America (education, social justice, stereotyping, inequality, and the like). It is one of my new favorite podcasts. I am proud of NPR and my alma mater, UT-Austin, for this podcast.
