Welcome

A good podcast on a very important topic. I’m psyched to see where you go with this and hopeful that efforts like this will improve transracial parenting practices.

Very relevant topics and guests

I was so happy to see this podcast as a transracial foster- adoptive parent. They invite guests with expertise very relevant to adopting transracially and I have really enjoyed listening! Keep inviting such great guests to your show!

My only suggestion to strengthen would be to spend less time trying to describe the work of each guest- instead, ask concise, brief, open ended questions that invite the guest to share about their work. If you do want to share about the guest, prepare a brief written statement to read from so you can clearly get your ideas across. Pause for a moment before interjecting after asking a question.
Sometimes people need a few moments to begin answering the question.
Thanks again for your contributions- this was just the type of podcast I was looking for.

Great Resource for Multiracial Families!

This podcast has been a huge source of encouragement for our family! The topics have been relevant and valuable for us as we navigate life as a multiracial family. Even if the topic is not about my child(ren)’s specific ethnicity I still find the content highly beneficial. I can hear Mark’s heart for fathering his kids well and it has helped shape my own parenting perspectives.

Thanks for a great resource!
