At the top.

I was just going to share the “F your water fountain” series with a friend, and thought I’d share it here too. It started in April 2021. Find it in this podcast feed.

This podcast is incredible

I binged this entire podcast in a couple days and I cannot wait for the next season. Every episode is well thought out and fully engaging. I have learned so much about racism and deep betrayals that have been committed and continue to occur daily. I can’t recommend it enough.
