    BONUS: Relating During the Pandemic with Autumn Brown

    Before our new season kicks off next month, we're thrilled to bring you this essential episode from The Emergent Strategy Podcast. To support ESII, click here. 

    Mother, organizer, theologian and writer, Autumn Brown, joins host Mia Herndon on this week's episode of The Emergent Strategy Podcast. In a lively discussion, Autumn talks about parenting during the pandemic, the challenges and positives of relating through technology, and discovers (excitedly) the Hide Self View feature.

    Society wants children who will become adults who believe their productivity is more important than their feelings. Me socializing my children to value their feelings at least as much as their productivity, if not more, isn't just about 'I want you to love yourself and be authentic!', it's also about'I want you to know when something is unfair. I want you to know when harm is happening.' If you're socialized to downplay your feelings, it's harder to know when harm is happening.That's part of what emergent strategy is inviting, there are things happening at these micro scales, like the scale of a relationship between a mother and a daughter. There are these lessons that we can extrapolate and scale for movements as a whole. But if we don't understand that the fundamental unit of change is relationship, then it will be hard to scale.- Autumn Brown on how emergent strategy (transformative justice as resilience) shows up in parenting.

Such a beautiful show

How to survive the end of the world is incredible. It’s simultaneously heartbreaking, life affirming, and wonderful. This podcast couldn’t be more timely but honestly gives me hope as to how the world could be. The interviews are so thoughtful and well considered. Having lived with chronic illness the podcast also opened my eyes to so many approaches to illness and our bodies. I honestly couldn’t be more thankful for the Brown sisters’ generosity, time, knowledge, and sharing experiences, stories and kindness. Thankyou so much for putting this out into the world.
