UnLearned is a bi-weekly podcast focused on unlearning harmful narratives taught to us about blackness, womanhood, sexuality, and religion. Through our show, we hope to deconstruct these power structures and to create a space of relearning. As we share our stories, we hope that you will share yours. Together we can show that blackness means many things, that it is comprised of many stories, and that many voices make our choir.

Episode 74: Burned to the Ground
We recap some of the worst moments of the year, learn about Black Wall Street and discuss cannibalism because we are living in the darkest timeline. Happy Holidays!
This is what I've been craving in podcasts. Not scripted, honest reactions. Self-aware, woke and informed commentary. It makes me feel less alone to know that there are content creators out there who share my views and are so thoughtful and informed.
I'm a relatively new listener, but I'm a fan already. Unlearning is so necessary in this country and these times we're living in, so I really value a podcast aimed at doing just that. If you need to hear people talking about current events in context of history, with a side of laughing-so-you-don't-cry and plenty of righteous anger, this is a good option. As a white person, I'm not really sure this podcast is really for me, maybe more for other black people in a sort of therapeutic, let's-process-this-together kind of way, but I think that's a good thing, and these perspectives are very important to hear and listen to anyway. I'm glad it's here, y'all are doing good work.
Episode 60 is too good to ignore
I’ve been listening for quite some time and this is the episode that had me sitting still and understanding that we can find ourselves at any time during our life. We are all amazing and beautiful people!!
