#BlackLivesMatter

This week, we're asking you to take the hour that you usually would to listen to this podcast and go educate yourselves - acknowledge your white privilege, address the racial biases ingrained in you and ask what you can do next for #BlackLivesMatter at home and across the world. Make it a habit, not a hashtag.
