Love love love

Denisha & Arin are just amazing. I enjoy listening to their perspective. Thank you for gifting us with your expertise, humor and love for humanity.

Thank you

The field of behavior analysis is seriously lacking in this conversation. Thank you for giving a platform to the reform movement toward a less ablest applied behavior analysis.

Growing and Learning

This podcast is a MUST LISTEN for literally everyone. Yes, it is geared towards behavior analysis and social justice, but after every episode I come away with homework they assign and also homework I assign myself. They constantly change me to be 1. A better behavior analyst; and 2. A better human being! Denish a and Arin are so easy to listen to, but they IGNITE a fire in your heart and mind to do better and keeps you coming back for more.
