So refreshing

I am so excited to listen to this podcast! Alicia Garza says it like it is. Very few people have the guts like she does. That she is based in the Bay Area is icing on the cake since that is where I am from and live now. I had to start with the Davy D and his knowledge dropping. Looking forward to hearing more recent episodes.

Favorite show

Hearing Alicia Garza’s wisdom, humor, wit, and shade each week makes my heart sing. I have learned so much from her and her guests. A master class in pod form. Thank you, Lady Don’t Take No team - I deeply appreciate your work.

Why would you push DNC talking points?

It will never be the time for socialism if so many people take DNC dollars to push us to vote against our interests. I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR DEMS UNTIL THEY STOP LYING FOR VOTES! So disappointing. Biden has failed us wildly on hundreds of issues. A vote for him is a vote against our interests. So disappointing.
