Super Serious Social Justice is a podcast about, as you may have guessed, social justice. But it's not your average discussion of social justice. It's easy to feel overwhelmed when talking about heavy topics, and we wanted to keep it light. That's why we aim for our podcast to have you laughing AND thinking hard.

Super AND Serious.
When I first heard about this podcast, I expected a good blend of emotional and rational discussion, lots of perspective trading, and strong personalities. SSSJ has all these things.
But I didn't expect it to be FUNNY.
Like hanging with your smartest friends
I am so glad I discovered this podcast! It's full of smart conversation on hard topics and handled with grace and humility. The three hosts are aware of their privilege and use it to tackle difficult subjects - not an easy feat to make funny and interesting but somehow they manage to make me laugh out loud several times an episode!
I really feel like I could ask you guys questions, or discuss stances on things comfortably. Humourous and very adult about your message. Respect.
