Gov Actually talks race and government

In its 40th episode, Gov Actually joins in on the conversations happening around the United States on race and what it means to be black in America. The podcast approaches the larger discussion about race specifically through the lens of government. “The issue of race relations and race dialogue in the United States needs further effort. It needs to be progressed. It needs to be, at a minimum, reset and frankly recognized,” co-host Dan Tangherlini says. “That discussion needs to happen, and it’s happening on the streets and it has to happen everywhere. So we’re going to have it here — we’re going to try to do it here.” Listen to the new episode now.
