As a WOC, I love this

To the 1-star reviewer who called this show a “socialist public service announcement,” I would like to respond that that is a compliment. Capitalism benefits white imperialists and harms almost everyone else.

Anyway, this is a great show, extremely listenable even while tackling topics that tend to make people uncomfortable. Andrew and Tawny are people that you want to be friends with and have these conversations with.

Podcast gold

Long time listener. Thank you for content that makes me feel a little more validated as a POC, and for introducing me to some truly talented Black and Brown comedians I never knew I needed in my life.
