Inspiring!

This show gives so many different perspectives of black men who have taken that step to be different and explore all the great places our world has to offer. Every guess on the shows has completely different story and reason why they travel which keeps me listening. It’s such an inspiration to hear black men talk about all the aspects of travel from business to leisure to self-identity. It encourages other to take that leap into the unknown as there are black men who look just like you doing exactly what you dream of.

Good stuff! 🧳

Love the vibe! Down to earth, cultured — yet not exclusive to a fault. Leaving breadcrumbs for people to figure out where they belong and where they fit. Keep up the great work!

A consistent dose of inspiration and loving charge of accountability!

I’ve LOVED this show from the jump - with so many different walks of life, complimented by the brilliant host, I have found more and more of myself reflected in this show. On second thought, more and more of myself has been revealed by hearing the different trials and tribulations of the men featured at The Point. Kimono Jack, keep doing your thing. The world needs every ounce of it! Shwam!
