Great show, great podcast, thank you!!

Today’s episode “The Great Class Collapse” is an outstanding example of a consistently excellent podcast. I love it whenever all four of the hosts—DeRay, Kaya, Myles and De’Ara—are in conversation. They go so deep! Their perspectives overlap, but they don’t hesitate to challenge one another. You give me so much to think about, challenge me to be a better person, and share such excellent links to follow up and learn more. Thank you!
