About Us

You know how every day someone asks "how are you?" And even if you’re totally dying inside, you just say "fine," so everyone can go about their day? This show is the opposite of that. Hosted by author and notable widow (her words) Nora McInerny, this is a funny/sad/uncomfortable podcast about talking honestly about our pain, our awkwardness, and our humanness, which is not an actual word. From American Public Media.

Policing and Racial Trauma with Angela Davis

EFor many people, the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was the latest graphic instance of a Black American being killed by the police -- and his homicide the most recent national example of historic, institutional discrimination against people of color and indigenous groups. Our colleagues at Call to Mind -- an APM / MPR initiative to inform and mobilize new conversations about mental health -- recently put a spotlight on the trauma of Black Americans and how it intersects with policing. Today, we're sharing the panelists' important conversations with you. Thank you to: - Angela Davis, host of MPR News with Angela Davis on Minnesota Public Radio. Find Angela on Twitter: @AngelaDavisMPR - Resmaa Menakem, founder of Justice Leadership Solutions in Minneapolis and author of "My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies."
