Love it!

These podcasts have been very helpful as I try to catch up my ignorance in regards to my racial education. I’m learning a lot about God’s love and truth from people who advocate for justice as a lifestyle. Thanks for hosting these!

Kay Coles James

I have found this podcast to be so inspiring and so uplifting during a challenging time in our nation and our world. I have supported many of the organizations discussed here. The Kay Coles James interview, however, was difficult to listen to. I was surprised that her anti-LGBTQ+ sentiments were not challenged, and I was disappointed that this podcast enabled her to misrepresent the Black Lives Matter organization. As someone with black and LGBTQ+ students, I know that they are just as worthy of God’s love as anyone else, and it is not the place of anyone on earth to judge their appropriate and loving family structures. I appreciate the meaningful work Eddie is doing to spread the word regarding different forms of activism. This particular episode seemed to be the antithesis of the overall mission of the podcast.
