I have been riveted by Tania’s work since her previous co-production, RACE BAIT. She manages to be brutally and movingly honest, while displaying a grace, a humanity, a curiosity, a sense of humor and a 360-degree view that I simply cannot do without. She is as essential to the way I navigate my life as any of the great news and media outlets I rely on, if not more. I cannot wait to see where TANIA’S TAKE takes me.
Very Thought Provoking
And I’ve learned a good number of valuable insights from Tania over the years.
