How do we tell the stories of diverse communities, some of which have been overlooked or often seen through biased lenses?

I See U with Eddie Robinson is Houston Public Media's newest talk show and podcast that focuses on those stories about cultural identity, social justice, and how people find a place for themselves between perception and self-identity.

This upcoming Saturday a new voice joins I See U, Dr. Melanye Price of Prairie View A&M University.

Dr. Price has been a frequent guest on Town Square as an expert guide into topics such as social justice and the impact of new Texas laws.

Now, she will guest host for the next few weeks as Eddie Robbinson takes paternity leave to spend time with his son.

We chat with her about some of the unique topics that listeners can expect to hear and how her experience as a teacher pushes her to find the answer to everyone she meets- why do you think that way?

Then, we catch up with Eddie Robinson on being a brand-new dad and the moment he held his son for the first time.
