So Good and Needed!

I LOVE this podcast. I am subscribed to a couple of different podcasts but The Breakdown is the only one I open the app for! This show is SO good. I love the wealth of information that Shaun provides. I love that we get news (good and bad) from our perspective. And most of all, I love that Shaun gives action steps. We’re not just listening to someone rant in a mic, getting us all riled up, and then leaving us with no steps to take to fix the issue. Shaun shares how we can do our part from anywhere in the country. I LOVE THAT!!!! THAT is what truly sets this podcast apart! Please keep keeping on Shaun, you and this podcast are needed!

Together we are strong

I've really come to appreciate this podcast. As a generational immigrant there are certain events and topics that are more personal to me and my family. But I also believe that all of the injustices and situations that are happening in the country with ALL people are interconnected. Shaun doesn't focus on one group and I find this to be the key to his message. Finding someone who takes an interest in all the issues, all the people and attempting to bring light to the need to involve ourselves= I'm inspired. We can't keep our blinders on anymore thinking that things do not apply to us personally. If they don't affect us, it's surely affects someone we know. If we take interest in humanity, little by little things can change for the better.

I Breakdown if there’s no The Breakdown

Everyday I look forward to my commute because that’s when I listen to The Breakdown. I actively participate in EVERY action item. Emails, calls, social media... Shaun has renewed my fuel to get active again like my days in college. Thank you for everything you do Shaun.
