Gene is a Philly native who loves running, ice cream, and tweeting about how 83% of society's ills can be linked to housing discrimination. Watch him in action here!


The conversation was kicked off by Chenjerai Kumanyika’s piece "Challenging The Whiteness Of Public Radio."

With Gene working in public radio and the two of us venturing into the podcast world, we had a lot to say about finding our voices and navigating seemingly white spaces.

Then, to lighten the mood, Tracy tells the heartwarming story of that time she went to a Klan rally!
