The Perspectives

This podcast is very much about individuals coming together around a common theme “being labeled an Oreo” with each individual bringing their own perspective to conversations. The different perspectives and little nuances highlighted on various topics is very intriguing. Bonus points for highlighting black experiences that are not typically shown in mainstream media. Some episodes are a rollercoaster of emotions. Can’t wait for more episodes
