Engaging. Authentic. Real.

I love this podcast! Kelly and Aurora tackle tough conversations about racism with honesty and vulnerability. Each episode is a new conversation to challenge you to learn and grow.

Incredible, informative, emotional

The Opt in is such a good podcast, it is easy to follow and understand, while they delve into highly complex questions and ideas with intriguing people. I’ve been trying lots of podcasts, and this is the one that I’ve stuck with. It has nearly made me cry before, and multiple times it has made me stop what I’m doing and say “ohh, omg” out loud. Powerful podcast, would recommend!!
