The show, focusing on issues of race and society,launched in the podcast realm with ten episodes released all at once via NPR ONE, SOUNDCLOUD, STITCHER, and iTUNES.
JOHNSON said, “TRUTH BE TOLD lets people of diverse backgrounds speak in their own voices rather than being spoken for. We drive the conversation toward solutions instead of fixating on problems. And we look for more than just controversy. There’s more to race than racism, and some of our stories are beautiful, fascinating, awkward . . . even funny!”
“Creating a space for civil discourse around race, racism and negotiating differences has never been more important,” said PRI Chief Content Officer MELINDA WARD. “As an organization committed to featuring diverse perspectives that help us better understand the world, PRI is thrilled to work with TRUTH BE TOLD as it convenes critical conversations about our shared humanity.”
