Counter Stories is a regular conversation about race, identity, social justice and culture.

The members of Counter Stories — Hlee Lee, Anthony Galloway, Don Eubanks and Luz Maria Frias — discuss important topics in the news, but also branch out to talk about how culture is portrayed on TV, in the media and more.

In today's conversation, the group discusses the Oscars, recent presidential debates and the challenge of conversing across cultures and communities.

The show, which began as a podcast last summer, now has a home on MPR's airwaves: Conversations will air during MPR News with Tom Weber. You can check out previous episodes at the Counter Stories page.
