    Episode Forty // Mothertime Sadness

    Episode Forty // Mothertime Sadness

    This is not about Lana del Rey. We named the episode before she went apeshit and couldn't come up with a better title in time lol. This episode is about our relationships with our mothers, familial trauma, and how we're working to break these cycles of abuse for future generations.

Love it!

I love Cassandra and Rubens perspectives and work in their communities! I’ve learned so much from them. I’m particularly thankful for their advocacy of children’s rights and addressing anti-blackness in the Latinx community. Plus they’re emo icons 🤪 and Aquarius and Sagittarius!
