Difficult conversations with fun people
This podcast is sometimes tough, it showcases experiences of black Americans living in a racist society. The podcast however is hosted by witty people who don’t make light of it as much as pointing out that we as a culture still have a lot of unpacking to do about racism and treatment of black people. Great content!
Powerful and timely - must listen podcast!
Deeply personal stories. Tamu and Aaron have an excellent rapport. Their stories and experiences are raw and honest. And they manage to make me laugh out loud too. A must listen to podcast.
White people need to hear this!
Gah! So refreshing to hear their honesty. And so helpful for me, a white woman living in suburban Maine, who has been brain washed w systemic racism my whole life. How do I/we change? Aaron and Tamu keep it real. They are humble in recognizing their part. I must be humble in my part as well. I look forward to hearing more episodes!!
