"The first few episodes she (Aminatou) is talking with various Black women from across the world about what Diana meant to their communities and families. This was honestly my favorite part of this six episode series. It was educational, and overall I felt like it was an observation of the power of connection and kindness for a global community - not just on a personal level but on a higher level of symbol and representation. Diana was far more than The Princess of Wales and Future Queen of England to a lot of people. Looking at that in particular, I feel, is missed in these conversations about this woman who no longer has a voice of her own. It’s taken me a moment to write this review because I do love this podcast. It is well produced, written, and is a consumable length. The first few episodes felt fresh, and important for a dynamic legacy- and I think this podcast could have done more had it been given the opportunity."
