A worthy listen

Loved the serial podcasts, and noticed “nice white parents” only yesterday. I listened to all episodes over a period of two days and I have already recommended it to multiple people. If you leave your prejudices about the “woke” movement (reference to other reviews)and just listen to what was found it’s incredibly interesting and thought provoking - even for a white woman educated in the UK. There are parallels that can be drawn across every country, particularly as someone who grapples with the state vs grammar vs private education system here and what I would do with my child.

Excellent

Great podcast, series 4 is excellent. Ignore the reviews from lesser people dismissing it as woke. This is way beyond their intellect.
