Finally A Podcast For Black Canadians
I am absolutely in love with this podcast. It feels very empowering to have discussions about our unique Canadian-Black identity. This podcast strikes the perfect balance between informative and unapologetic yet compassionate and understanding. The hosts are clearly very well educated and address the delicate topics of being a black Canadian with respect and integrity. Well done.
