This podcast makes all of us part of the conversation — because we're all part of the story.

  • This one is worth the time to rate

    I have many podcasts that I follow and loved many of them, but this is the first time I feel the need to rate a podcast because of how much it fills a void. Also I love the chemistry flow between the 2 hosts, their preparation, and the different perspectives they bring. I don’t always agree with what the experts say, but it doesn’t matter.

  • Wow. The reviews here are harsh

    And probably from folks who know nothing about true race relations in the US. I'm sure they know very little about culture to boot. The vernacular is sometimes street level, but make no mistake, your hosts are not uneducated "kids" (as one reviewer stated). Sometimes truth to power can be scary to those who have everything to lose, I guess.
