Funny, real, so very appreciated

For a white lady like me, who is trying to listen, learn, and do better (cliched as the mantra of liberal white women everywhere but also genuinely stated), I am SO GRATEFUL for this podcast(e). Lovey is so genuine, pulls no punches, speaks directly from her heart, and has given me so much insight into the kind of life I will never know. Her guests always bring something fascinating and new to the table, and her solo episodes are always just as amazing. I wanted to find her and thank her personally after the episode about her personal experiences with racism growing up Black in a white world. I think experiences like those, like any traumatic experience that any of us have had, can be really difficult to relive, and we don’t have the right to demand or even ask others to share their personal traumas, so I felt honored and grateful that she opened up like this. And angry. So angry about all of the times people stood by, watched it happen, and did nothing.

The perspectives shared in her podcast(e) are so accessible and enlightening, especially for someone who lives in a largely homogenous region as I do. She’s also snarky as hell and hilarious, which I’ll always appreciate.

Listen, learn, relate, enjoy. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Timing is everything

These conversations are hard. Lovey is my friend and she is literally holding my hand with her words as I help myself and my children to broaden our knowledge of the real history in this country, open our eyes and use our voices to be part of a better America for all of us. Thank you thank you.

I’ve been doing this podcast thing for many years and am happy to say that this podcast has now replaced many of my perennial favorites as the most looked forward to listening, learning and laughing experience each week!
