Come on Team! Sugar baby episode was so weak I’m embarrassed to recommend for fear that people will chose that to be their first episode to listen to. AND, you dropped the ball with the last two on Alcoholism. In this critical time we need more than this for awareness/advocacy and support for a community that is more often Anonymous than not. Your kindness and capacity at this time could have really made a difference. My hubby said maybe you just don’t get it, and that’s what gives me comfort.

Wonderful!

Between Friends: Your Stories About Race and Friendship

Podcast cover
Read more

"Your white friend can just make one comment and it feels like a trap door has opened up from underneath," one listener told us when we asked for stories about race and friendship. "And I’m thrust back into the realities of living in a racist America."

Today: Your stories about when race became a flashpoint in your friendships. Tomorrow, we'll share an episode from our partners at the NPR podcast Code Switch, featuring expert advice on navigating those flashpoint moments around race—and explaining why it's so hard to make, and maintain, cross-racial friendships.

Loved from beginning, BUT...

Come on Team! Sugar baby episode was so weak I’m embarrassed to recommend for fear that people will chose that to be their first episode to listen to. AND, you dropped the ball with the last two on Alcoholism. In this critical time we need more than this for awareness/advocacy and support for a community that is more often Anonymous than not. Your kindness and capacity at this time could have really made a difference. My hubby said maybe you just don’t get it, and that’s what gives me comfort.

Wonderful!
