Join host Dino-Ray Ramos as he brings together a panel of minorities (and at times, one token white hetero male, if they're up for it) to have a lively discussion about the portrayal of people of color and other minorities in the current landscape of movies, television, pop culture and media. It's commentary with color.

This Podcast is Everything!
Love hilarious and brilliant Dino as well as his amazing, very diverse guests. I find myself laughing along with each episode. It's such a great space for people of color. This is the podcast I've been waiting for!
Such a fun podcast with timely issues. Dino's hilarious!
Can’t wait for more!
This is the podcast I have been waiting for! Two of my faves right now are Call Your Girlfriend and Throwing Shade. I was looking for another show about pop culture and social issues that focused more on issues facing people of color and voila! I would suggest skipping the first episode as one of the guests dominated the conversation and said some disrespectful things about trans people and women. But the very next episode redeemed the show for me. I’m excited for the future of this podcast!
