Dark Tank with Yedoye Travis

Dark Tank is a podcast where white people try their best. In each episode of Dark Tank, Yedoye Travis asks a melanin deficient guest to undo the mistakes of the past by pitching solutions to pressing minority issues--to a panel of people of color. We're solving racism, one white ego at a time. Produced by the Forever Dog Podcast Network and the Brain Machine Network.
