I recently discovered a podcast called “The Glenn Show”. The shows that I have watched are AWESOME. They cover a range of topics and the show hosts or main characters Professor Glen Loury and Professor John McWhorter are intelligent, thoughtful , and current. I don’t agree with everything they they say or topic they discuss but they make the listerner feel like you can have a discussion with them. WE NEED MORE DISCUSSIONS. This show on COPS and Race is my favorite so far. It was recorded 5-28-2020. Below is a list of some of the topics they discuss during the podcast. There were far more topics discussed and in much more detail. I think you will find that this will be the first time you will hear how these topis are discussed.
