Genuinely interesting, relatable & educational

Usually I switch between podcasts after an episode but I’ve been binging Mixed Kid Chronicles all night! Katie’s authentic and each episode is relatable as well as educational. The topics have definitely helped me become more aware of these mixed kids feelings while growing up! I lost track of how many times I’ve thought “oh wow same” within only a few episodes. The guests on this podcast are just as interesting as Katie. I love hearing everyone’s experiences! Thanks for this podcast Katie!

Love!

As the mom of mixed kids, I am so so grateful this podcast exists. It’s so good and so important. ❤️

Season 2! Finally!

I am so glad this show is back! It’s too bad that some of the content is pretty delayed though, considering Kamala and Meghan’s current statuses.
