Need more research
While I was excited for this podcast, and want to support- I was also disappointed with several episodes in how poorly research was done about other communities of color. There have been multiple moments on this podcast, where people’s race, ethnicity or religion was falsely named. It’s important to get these details right, and perhaps even develop some cultural competency/cultural humility into the analysis of social issues.
Y’all need to go more into the research imo. What y’all say is true but it’s super easy for people to discredit your opinions without any real evidence to back it up. It’s a bunch of yea you knows and when they nuance their opinions there arguments fall flat in their face.
Love the real ness
I love this show and the straight forward context. I just wish they did some more research so people won't discredit what they have to say. They're so awesome and I appreciate them for bringing to light these issues.
