Ok

I love the content of the show and the people that are interviewed. I’m just not crazy about the host. She kind of does too much for my taste so it gets kind of annoying, but I like that it is a positive podcast.

Essential to the Culture!🙌🏾👏🏾💪🏾

I typically watch the podcast via its YouTube Channel. I love the show! Tracey is a great host! Her energy is unmatched and she always asks great questions. The guests are truly what make the show such a dope concept. There are so many amazing influential black actors and actresses who don’t receive as much recognition as they deserve. I think it’s great that this show gives them their flowers and spreads the love that black culture knows they should have. I love it! I’m excited for the new season.💜😀
