Together Laura and Irene talk about 2020 being a transformational year in light of the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as some of Irene's favourite black hosted podcasts. Irene's choices includes the hilarious Receipts Podcast, the prolific ancillary podcast to Reni Eddo Lodge’s book About Race podcast and the New York based culture podcast The Read with Kid Fury and Crissle West.
