PodCapers Ep. 161: In Memory of Chadwick Boseman with Archit Tripathi and Lindiwe Ngwevela

In honour of a man who literally inspired millions, Scott, Archit, and Lindiwe talk about Chadwick Boseman’s tragic passing, the BLM protests in Kenosha, and how far Black superheroes have come in film.

Recent events have left us all incredibly saddened, but it’s important to remember to never give up hope, to never stop fighting for equality, and to always remember:

“In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers.”
