The Racial Maddow Show

Just the best podcast out there. Warm and engaging, just got to listen to her interview with Amen Ra. Good stuff and always inspirational and moving. From Mueller She Wrote, Daily Beans, the Racial Maddow Show and soon the Jaleesa Johnson Show, Jaleesa brings the news and insights I find nowhere else. Jaleesa brings important and sometimes “uncomfortable” truths always with kindness and compassion. Plus her voice is pure love, straight from her heart. You’ll hear...

Jaleesa’s interviews are wonderful

She is so vulnerable & her guests respond in kind, which means the conversations are truly illuminating. Wonderful work!

Your opening is inspirational. Elijah died yesterday and I have been heartbroken. Keep the good fight, Jaleesa!
