Real Conversations About Race In America

Andre Koen and Brian Jost are doing something special here.  This podcast is a very thoughtful conversation about race and the challenges that indivduals have with knowing that something is wrong, but not really knowing what to do about it. Thoughtful, entertaining, and timely. Check it out!

A must listen!

Just started listening and am so glad I did. As a white, queer woman, there is much for me to learn when it comes to racial justice. This podcast is helping me dig in.

Real stuff

So glad Brian and Andre are making such a vulnerable, important show. Growing through discomfort is what we all really need more of.
