A must listen!

This Is Democracy is a perfectly-suited title for this must-listen podcast!

Jeremi brings together people of different faiths, backgrounds, and ages who engage in constructive, thought-provoking conversations on some of the most important issues in American society. And each episode opens with a profound and impactful poem by Zachary.

Educational for the entire family.

I really appreciate the format of this podcast. I have a 14 year old and a 10 year old and I will sometimes play these on the way to and from school. They provide a springboard and a structure for discussions that I find to be important to include our younger generations in. Topics are on point, historically factual and interesting.

This podcast will not only keep you entertained, but will make your mind think about our society in a different way.
