Jana is such a warm and personable host. All of the people she features bring highly unique and enlightening perspectives- no matter where you come from. Season 2 has definitely impressed, and Episode 1 even got a shoutout from Elizabeth Banks!!! Wooot! I think that alone speaks to the value/timeliness of this podcast and the desperate need for more Indigenous/POC-centric content that all people will enjoy and learn from.
