Nah...

I used to be intrigued by this podcast for the first few seasons with its dream-like story telling. But now, speaking as a privileged halfrican, I don’t feel sorry for you because I know the height of privilege is marked by the ones who live to complain.

Live to serve those that you love, and do what you can to make others lives better. Otherwise your complaints become noise in the sea of cacophony.

We’re all sorry you’re not seen equally in the eyes of society. God knows I’ve been discriminated against for many things. But I’m not running from bombs, and you’re running a podcast, probably young and healthy enough to survive covid despite its blatant attack on poc having equal access to health care 🤷🏾‍♂️

I’ve been a fan of The Heart for years & always find solace in how every story embodies curiosity + pleasure exploring topics that are often very personal + difficult. The new iteration spearheaded by NK + Phoebe is 🔥erotic af above everything else. Get into it
