I just started listening, it took me a bit to get into it. Great reporting though!

Listen with an Open Mind

This has been such a great listen so far for a Chicagoan. We have very similar situations here and listening and reflecting gives you the opportunity to think about what role you play in all of this.
People who are unwilling to even listen with an open mind and are giving 1 star are clearly “nice” white people.

Excellent first Episode

The brigading of this review section is horrifying.

This podcast is important.

White folks, it should feel uncomfortable to listen to this. Don’t push that feeling away and give into anger. Instead, ask yourself why? Why do I feel attacked or upset? Why am I cringing at the actions of the white patents. We have work to do.

Implicit bias is real and on display in this first episode.

I look forward to more shows like this one.

Thank you NPR, for your thoughtful, necessary programming.
