    Sibling Miniseries Bonus: IBEYI

    Autumn and adrienne kind of want the sibling miniseries to go on forever, so they were ecstatic when Ibeyi wanted to talk about twinning, creating at their intersections, carrying a multitude of lineages and their latest project, Spell 31.

    Loving Ourselves Right Now

    Loving Ourselves Right Now

    adrienne and Autumn are back with a brand new season, and this year we are looking at L.O.V.E. Love! What is it? Why does it happen? Why does it hurt so bad? Why does it feel so good? And how might it help us survive as a species? All these questions and more get introduced, and some of them start to get answers.

    Freedom Dreams

    Freedom Dreams

    We're so excited to share an episode from a new podcast we think you'll love called Freedom Dreams. It's a show that explores historical examples of experiments in liberation, and dreams about how to expand the work already being done to build the abolitionist world we want to see beyond police and incarceration.

    SUBSCRIBE TO FREEDOM DREAMS WHEREVER YOU LISTEN TO PODCASTS. 

    In this episode, the Freedom Dreamers head over to The James and Grace Lee Boggs School in Detroit to learn about place-based education and its relationship to community action. Many think of school as a place where you get to know yourself…but what if it was also how you got to know your community? Ethan Lowenstein teaches us the basics of place-based education and how it knocks down the wall between school and community to better prepare students to live empowered, active lives. Then Julia Putnam, Amanda Rosman, and Marisol Teachworth (administrators at the Boggs School) tell us how language arts, science, and social studies classes can bring students into their communities to practice problem solving and engaging with the people around them. Our guests teach us about visionary organizing and how it focuses not just on what systems we’re tearing down but also what we’re building up. Listen in for these alternative models of academic success!

This show means so much to me

I’ve been meaning to write a review for a while. This show has changed my life—not in the sudden hairpin turn that phrase evokes but in a slow shifting deep within me. I listened to the first episode driving to pick up a friend from the airport in fall 2019. A few days later, another friend needed a ride, and I got to listen to it all over again, sharing it with my friend. For anyone just starting this podcast, I recommend starting with the very first episode of the first season. After that, go ahead and listen to more recent episodes, or pick whichever ones look good or go ahead and listen to them all in order, but I really think you should listen to the first one.
This podcast has been with me through so many transitions, ones that appear individual and those that are easily seen as collective. adrienne maree brown’s beautiful piece “in case it helps/ bell hooks asé” came just when I needed it. I listened over and over, letting loving tears fall easy. I love so many things about this show. I love the love that Autumn and adrienne show each other. I love the way nuance is tended to. I love how it shakes me into reckoning with the past, present and future but does not let me try to do that alone. If you’ve read this far in my review, you should really go ahead and listen to the show.
