Always look forward to Real Black News

I always enjoy the news you present about the black community and I love it when you include international guest. Also I've learned a lot from the guest that discusses finances. I always look forward to listening to the show. It leaves me feeling empowered, connected and proud. You discuss news that other news outlets do not discuss. Also, you're funny and you make the show entertaining as well as informative. I know putting something like this together takes a lot of work so thank you so much!

Best Black Podcast!

I’ve been listening to this podcast for over a year. The show is not only dope, it is courageous and intelligent enough to get to the heart of POC & Black News. Mays is laser focused, real, and unafraid to talk about the issues. This is a rare gift in a world where honest news is censored.

Diversity in finance/economics, diversity in culture, Mays edifies and my reality every episode. Truly happy to be a listener! I also support her on Patreon… Support a sistah!
