Becca Talks About Public Health
Loved this episode! It helped me better understand public health and it was fun to get to “meet” the author! I really loved this book! I have given it to several children. It’s written in a fun voice that kids really love and it’s great for adults too because it gives the right language to talk about important ideas with kids.
Smart, Thoughtful, and Respectful!
What a beautifully produced podcast of diverse voices! The discussions cover topics that are important yet often so difficult to talk about. The guests are open and authentic! The host’s empathy and curiosity makes you feel welcome and validated. Highly recommend!
