Hiyaaaaaaaaaa ,

A wonderful podcast!

I started listed to PSBB last summer, and I have fallen in love with Marcia and Shannon! They are such lovely and wonderful co-hosts who are working to amplify all voices, but particularly those of Black Catholics. Their work and this podcast are doing great things for the world.

This white girl loves this podcast!

These ladies are hilarious and honest about their journey on the straight and narrow path. I so appreciate them sharing their perspective and really enjoy it too!

You need this podcast!!

Shannon and Marcia are such lovely people and so well-spoken, and every time I listen to this podcast I feel like I’m having a conversation with my friends. They cover fun, pop culture-related topics but also deeper, more serious ones, from Catholicism to racism, and are never afraid to tie the two aspects together. I always come away from the episode feeling like I’ve learned something and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts! 10/10 recommend!
