We have seen the racists - and they are us.

In this inaugural episode, professors Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann and Brad Raley admit their own white privilege had allowed them to think things "had gotten better" during Barack Obama's time in the White House, but the unraveling of America under Donald Trump has revealed a much more somber reality when it comes to racial equality in the United States - as was on full display this past week.

About the Podcast

Estate Sale: the selling out of American democracy
American institutions are under attack...and that means our democracy is at stake.
Democracy depends on a free press, a government for the people, a just legal system and separate-but-free church.

Yet, we have a corrupt U.S. president, a partisan Supreme Court, a power-hungry white evangelical bloc and a lazy press - which is revealing just how much our American values are being sold out.

With a lot of informative guests and a few F-bombs, co-hosts Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann and Brad Raley are going to change that.
