A Daily Essential!

I recently caught up on all episodes of this podcast on a round trip road trip from Illinois to southern Texas and loved every minute of it. Shaun (as expected) exceeds all expectations. Perhaps what I love most is his ability to break down (no pun intended) even the simplest concepts, ideas, and stories. He doesn’t assume that listeners always know the topic he’s discussing. So excited to be a founding member and can’t wait to see what Shaun does next.

My new favorite podcast!

I love this podcast! It’s so informative and Shaun breaks everything down in such a clear and succinct manner. The action steps at the end of each episode allow everyone to not only stay informed but they empower us to make changes ourselves.

Absolutely Essential Podcast

The Breakdown makes me feel many things: gratefulness for Shaun King and the Breakdown team for offering such clear, well-researched, transparent and different perspectives than my standard news sources; deep anger and horror at the injustices facing people of color in the United States; shame for so many years spent in my white privilege cocoon; and hopefulness that through education and action we can slowly claw our way to a better place. This is a must-listen-to podcast and news source.
