Love that there is so many topics that are covered during this podcast. I always learn something new that’s not covered in mainstream.

The sound of your voice and the way you deliver each podcast is so mellow and soothing. Even the darkest subjects that tug at the heart are delivered with eloquence. Cool, calm, collective and educational. Perfection. Also, that beautiful daughter podcast stopped me in my tracks. She is a...Read full review »

I find each and every episode I am able to listen to provides me valuable perspective and new, enlightening information. Even when I think I already know a lot about a particular topic, sure enough, I learn something new! My one critique is the host, Trymaine Lee, makes the mistake that most...Read full review »

The Understanding of Affirmative Action, First I want to say the audio was clear no distortions what so ever and as always each episode is very informative. Each time when you have a guess (s) my mind pictures the conversation on personal experiences and imagining there (The guess) stories.

This was such a fantastic show! I’m so glad to hear that the women are staying in Florida to fight for their truth.

What a thought provoking, insightful, and comprehensive conversation about the Black working class. Trymaine’s navigation of the interview is masterful. This is indeed an important contribution to our Canon! Thank you for amplifying our stories.

This podcast was on my feed of recommendations and I’m so glad I found it. I listened to the “Don’t Call The Police” episode first and had no idea that Black medics through an org called Freedom House created the modern EMS systems in the US. Incredible to learn about the history of Freedom...Read full review »

I can’t get enough, so I listen to every episode TWICE. And wow is all I have to say. It’s okay to be inclusive but it’s also okay to call a person who can get pregnant a “Woman”! People with a uterus and fallopian tubes are called women! Yes, some men want to be female but they will never be...Read full review »

This podcast share stories, gives space for voices, and addresses issues that are important - it explores the Black experience. The variety of topics is broad, and as host, Trymaine Lee brings the right balance of personal in combination with journalistic professionalism. Love it!

Such a great reflection of the hip hop and its evolution through society.
lyfetyme via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/23
I absolutely love this podcast as it takes a deep dive into the music I grew up loving. To hear the perspective of the artists at the time and in retrospect is fascinating.

I’m a 73 year old lady who loved this series and learned so much about the story of hip hop/rap
kikirubytuxedo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/23
I love this guy’s viewpoint and depth. I am a white 71 year old and I’m thankful that he lets me in. I’m about to listen to the series on hip hop for the second time—it deserves a Pulitzer.
Pattymcmanus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/23
I sat in my bathroom braiding my hair and listened to every episode. I danced, rapped along to every lyric played, remembered where I was during each event reflected on and shed a few tears. Thank you so much for reminding me how much I love Hip Hop. I can’t imagine how my life would be without...Read full review »

This series is amazing. I always love this podcast but this spotlight on hip-hop has been marvelous. I love hearing the history of hip-hop told through all the voices and music. Thank you for this study in Black life, what makes it both painful and excellent, and for championing hip-hop as the...Read full review »

Great series! Well done. I really enjoyed this podcast but this series on the history of hip hop was by far my favorite one. Thank you for doing this.
Boosicle1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/23
As a 75 year old white guy who never liked hip hop music, much preferring funk, disco, and cool jazz, I found the documentary series on the history of hip Hop absolutely fascinating, and listened to each episode multiple times to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Now I’m starting to listen...Read full review »

This celebration of 50 years of hip-hop was epic! I also enjoyed “Life, Loss, and Libations”. Great work on full display and I have enjoyed sharing this with others. Thank you!
Mizz Bris via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/23
The series on the history of hip hop is by far the best documentary on the music of my youth. It is very well researched, beautifully written and full of fascinating insights. Please look at continuing more content on this topic!
ThisIsNate via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/23
So fitting as we celebrate the 50th year of hip hop. So great how you delve into each of the music’s phases and how politics & society tie in. It’s so well-done. I’m sad that the series is coming to an end - but you will still have me as a listener ✊🏾
Shaneek107 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/23
Seriously the best pod out there right now. The stories are so relatable and Trymaine is the best storyteller out there
Dante0786 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/23
Who would you want to have a beer with? My pick, Trymaine Lee. In this glorious podcast, Into America, Trymaine walks this pasty white gal through topics I maybe thought I knew and puts a spin on every one that makes me stop and think. He never backs down, presenting tough topics and always with...Read full review »

From your series on voting and HBCUs to your latest on Hip Hop, what a loving tribute to African Americans and all we are, all we have created, and all we have given to our country and our world. Thank you.

One of the most inciteful narratives about Hip Hop culture, politics and the music I’ve ever heard! Many thanks
sissywood69 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/23
By far, my favorite podcast. Shows the facts about pretty much any aspect of black lives. Can’t think of a better education for we white people.
