Greatful

Great content! Ironically, very limited. The lack of content here, mirrors the stories being told.

Please, please expand this in length especially and in content. I cannot believe the Smithsonian would short us like this. The canon of African American history is vast. Please, more.

Reptile Rejuvenation? National Zoo cast?

I'm sure this is a mistake and not a condescending attack reminiscent of those slung towards Blacks more publicly in America's past but why is the majority of the podcast about National Zoo animals? Until they fix this terrible mistake one star from me.
