Who do you call for perspective on the craziest year in recent memory? Two expert dreamers—New York Times critic Jenna Wortham and curator Kimberly Drew, co-editors of the ambitious new book Black Futures.

Plus, we hear about the lessons of the year from members of The Meteor collective—like Raquel Willis, Liz Plank, Treasure Brooks, and Rebecca Carroll—and, most importantly, from you, our listeners.
