Yes so good !
A very well done podcast, I was listening to “Shake the room” while at work when my phone started blowing up over the attempted coup. We need more podcast from and for POC. My black 16 yr old nephew from Canada will soon be living with us to continue his education, I’ve been talking to him as much as possible regarding the police and not being murdered by one, as well as US history, and I’m adding this podcast to “You MUST” listen to this.” As it perfectly covers both topics.
Seriously so good
Incredible. Beautiful. Honest, funny. Each story is amazing in different ways on so many levels. The coach episode, Warriors episode, the story about the host’s mom. This show deserves all the love, all the $$$, all the support!! So well done, bravo!!
