As podcasters, we have a platform and duty to speak up and call out injustice. In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition. Racism is prevalent in all industries; from the media who under-report on black victims to the justice system which routinely fails black victims. In this collaborative episode, we document black history and current events with the voices of those who have lived through it. Special thanks to: Tasha from Sinister SilhouettesAndre and Battle from Bruh Issa Murder Serena from Handcuffed Podcast Aaron from True Crime?
