Description: "A Pod Called Quest" is a podcast taking on everything that people concerned about injustice care about, from the wealth gap to voting rights, to police brutality, to reparations, to health and well-being, to climate change, to state repression and much more. Sage and Science want listeners to think with them about problems of injustice, just futures, and evidence-based solutions. Derrick Darby (aka Sage) is a philosopher at Rutgers University. Christian Davenport (aka Science) is a political scientist and sociologist at the University of Michigan. Join our quest to impose logic as well as data on the struggle for justice in America and globally. Give us your time, we give you power, wealth, and culture.
