Fantastic

Parenting for the Future is a podcast that I’ve highly recommended to several friends. I have three children, 14, 12, and 9, and Petale’s conversations are insightful and always relevant. My personal favorites are Girls Dealing with Anxiety and the History of Segregation in Federal Housing. Thank you Petale!!!

Thoughtful and Necessary

As a teacher I am always thinking about ways to support my students to not use be academically successful but how to become better people too. This podcast jumps right into that question set against the backdrop of the challenging age in which we live. I look forward to what comes next!
