I value this podcast on so many levels. It has two ingredients I love; it's smart and it's positive. I always come away feeling I've learned a ton, and empowered to be the change I seek. I was struck by the negative comments I just saw complaining and dismissing this podcast because of how regularly the hosts discuss racism and their perspectives and experience of it. So I feel compelled to write the following: I happen to be white, and I notice I gravitate towards white voices--it's my default because it's what I know (and it's the dominant culture). Listening to this podcast opens me up and increases my perspective. I come away having more empathy and understanding of experiences outside of my own. I regularly feel more connected to all of humanity after an episode of Pod Save The People. It feeds my soul and increases my desire to effect change. So grateful 💗

It's basically Pod Save America, but with more black stereotypes. It's also much less focused and more badly expressed to the point that episodes often devolve into an hour of complaining about about white people in general.

When I was growing up the program was called book it. Read a book a night weekly and we received a coupon good for a personal pizza from pizza hut. Now the kids have to complete an entire month for a personal pizza.

Your 8/19 episode has made me unsubscribe to this pod. The fact that each of your guests admitted to rooting for the "black person" in every Emmy category, regardless of merit, shows me you are all as racist as those whom you would condemn. Such blatant racism can only fuel the alt right and contribute to the current divisive atmosphere. I, for one, can no longer support you with my subscription.

Big boi nope. I'm not a narcissist. I don't care about a foolish award show for an objective form of art.
