  • Uncomfortable and engaging

    I do enjoy and look forward to this podcast. It’s raw and meaningful conversations.. the host are deep and truly compassionate as well as passionate. They always keep it 100 and I like that they don’t always agree or see things the same way.

Big Rach chiming in on (not in front of others) Black topics. Racist Spend Sir trying to pass go for another 200.00 $. Trying to rebrand his ultra racist past and views. N🚫 Jumpers is not a Hip Hop podcast. Showcasing low vibration interviews and (lowercase) artist, trying to be DJ Vlad Jr. IMO nor is the Joe Budden’s podcast, it’... more
