Global Fight for Racial Equity - Jul 23, 2020

What an awesome episode. The discussion was relevant for today and had amazing stats that really honed in on the issues. Great information from other areas around the world.

Went Down Hill

I was particularly disappointed by the interview with the Koch-funded “restrainer” advocating repackaged isolationism, who was all but granted free rein by the host. I’ve been listening since the beginning and the decline has been pretty notable in my view. Is this a podcast that gets serious and has some depth of topic? Is it a podcast for general audiences to get their feet wet? Is this a forum for connected academics to sell books? In my view, the podcast needs to pick a direction (hopefully a meaningful one) rather than be Carnegie potluck.
