In this month's episode, BlackTea is bringing you a hot performance! Your hosts tap into their acting skills to bring you their own interpretation of some of the city's latest juicy political drama, how the COVID-19 relief dollars be spent? If you've been having trouble keeping track of all of the various conversations and proposals don't worry-we got you!. We'll break it all down for you on this episode!

On Community Spotlight we talk with the city's new Executive Director of the Saint Louis Development Corporation (SLDC), Neil Richardson. Neil is a co-founder of Dream Builder's for Equity and an experienced professional in real estate, and community development. As we talk with him we learn about how he cultivated a career in real estate finance, his passions for wanting to give back to St. Louis through his non-profit, and his vision for a more equitable Saint Louis.
