Life-changing podcast

Wow! This is everything I didn’t even know I was looking for or needed in a podcast. Mo & Jasmine speak honestly and openly about their parenting journey and all of the barriers / roadblocks parents face in making sure we raise socially aware anti-racist babies. They are both incredibly engaging and speak from the heart, and the language/understanding of inclusivity and equity used is so on point I feel like when I listen I’m basically getting free therapy sessions (don’t worry, I know podcasts aren’t a substitute for a licensed MH professional!) But still, thanks for sharing lived experience and ways that parents and non parents alike can come face to face with internalized white supremacy and continue on to smash the patriarchy!! Love listening to both of you and appreciate the hell out of this podcast!
