This is an amazing podcast and one that is needed across the nation! Too often we ask for the labor of black women and neglect to lift up and encourage black women to take roles of elected office. Thank you Rebecca for opening up your life and allowing us to share space with you and your amazing guests!

Rebecca Thompson is a star, and her podcast is nothing less than phenomenal. She thoughtfully engages major issues, provokes thoughtful dialogue, and both elicits and offers key insights. A rare talent for sharing her leadership skills and encouraging others.

Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing your story and cultivating a space where we can learn from each other! Public service has been ruminating in my soul for some time now… with increasing intensity. So happening upon THIS podcast, is kind me of blowing my mind, lol! Thank you! I look forward to engaging with this community.
