Part of my work as a white person is to uplift the voices of people of color, so I’m letting you in on this not-so-secret list of great podcasts. I don’t subscribe to all of them (my weekly podcast list is long, and my podcast listening time is short), but I have listened to at least one episode of most of them. Check them out and add your recommendations in the comments!
