One of my fave pods!

I love this podcast so much! Not only does it teach me so much, but the production is great and Tonya is such a wonderful host. It is really giving voice to so many people who need to be heard more. Some of my favorite episodes have been Holding on to Joy, Deportation Wounds, and ‘Rona and Racism: A Survival Guide

Amazing

TBT is so powerful. And it’s created in a way that is honest and guides healing. Thank you for such a honest and vulnerable podcast. The themes of social justice and anti-oppression are critical.
