Making Angela Y Davis giggle

This podcast uniquely surprises me every time.
Garza asks the questions, and reads the room in warm and special ways. She has a way of making guests comfortable, most recently evident in the episode where she makes AYD giggle talking about sewing during pandemic.
From soup to nuts, politics to cooking practices. Superb!
