Join hosts Heather Fleming and Delaney Rhea for comfortable conversations about uncomfortable topics. Each episode will explore a relevant topic and teach us how to listen, learn, and love in order to create equity all around us
Episode 6: Unity Without Accountability
Heather, Delaney, and Katie discuss the calls for unity in our political realms and ask the question, “Can we really skip the accountability and go straight to unity?” We’ll explore this question as we talk about current events, parenting, and personal relationships.
Episode 10: Equality v. Equity
What is the difference between equality and equity? Why do we need equity now more than ever?
In this episode, Delaney and Heather examine these questions and explain a little of the historical context that calls for today’s equity push.
Episode 11: Representation Matters
Delaney, Heather, and Katie discuss representation in various aspects of our lives and how important that representation is in breaking down stereotypes and barriers.
Episdoe 14: Real Talk
A few weeks ago, Heather posted a Twitter conversation thread to her Facebook page that was an interaction between three individuals discussing the difference between the concept of "real talk" found within the black community and the communication styles found in WASP culture. This post lead to many great discussions about how these differences impact equity in workplaces and social spaces.
In this episode, Katie returns and takes the lead as she discusses this topic with Delaney and Heather. How do these differ? How should we process "real talk"? What does it mean to our interracial friendships and relationships?
Episode 15: The Importance of Self-Care
Delaney and Heather discuss why you must practice self-care when doing this work. Whether it is wearing your special crown or having coffee at Starbucks with your personal trophy, self-care is whatever makes you feel renewed and ready to dive into the fray!
How do you practice self-care?
Episode 19: Sick Day
In this episode, that isn't an episode, Delaney gives Heather permission to take a sick day because if we don't take care of ourselves, we can't take care of others. Listen for exciting news about what is to come in May for the Listen Learn Love Podcast.
LOL funny while also extremely educational
These two amazingly intelligent women make me laugh out loud every episode. If you’re trying to figure out your way down the anti-racism path, but don’t know where to start, or even if you're well into the journey, striving to be the best ally you can be, this is MADE for you! You won’t regret listening to every episode! Put on the Birks!
Heather and Delaney are amazing storytellers that invite you in on your level and leave you with an amazing, in depth education about deep topics. I’m so lucky to bear witness to their work outside this podcast, but what you are hearing so is real and genuine to who they are. Share this podcast far and wide, there is so much important work that needs to be done!
I feel like I’m talking with friends
This is the absolute BEST podcast I’ve listened to. I can’t sit through podcasts. I try. I’m a perpetual learner but I have to read everything, there is something about the experience of voices without faces (I can’t listen to radio talk either). Heather and Delaney’s presence and engaging way of communicating just draws you in; you want to learn more. Take a listen, I promise you will love what you hear and stay for the anti-racism information!
