We want to acknowledge that we live and produce this podcast on the traditional land of the Ojibwe, Ottawa, Potawatomi, Ioway, Sauk and Fox people. It is important for all of us to understand, grapple with and respect the inherent right to these lands held by the native population. This is not history, this is reality.

Shared History stands against racism. We acknowledge our privilege and that we will always be learning and growing on our journeys to being stronger anti-racists and allies to our peers of color. As in all capacities of our podcast, we welcome questions, corrections, and suggestions.
