Rad Child is a podcast that answers the age old question “how do I talk to my child about that!?”. Each episode will focus on a topic often considered “taboo” or “too complicated” for children. The podcast will tackle things like race, gender, sexuality, mental health, disability and much, much more! Your host Seth Day will meet with a different panel of guests each episode and they will discus the topics from their own experience with children as parents, educators, nannies, doulas, etc. Guests will talk on topics they have experienced personally. Every single person has a different lived experience. The goal of this podcast is to create a space where those experiences can coexist so we can take them and use them to help raise a generation of compassionate, open, rad children.

Great content and fun conversations

Thanks for putting together such a great show. I loved listening to the episode on intersectionality and privilege and look forward to hearing more! 💕

Wonderful resource

The conversations on this podcast are thoughtful, fun, and vital if we want to raise a generation of empowered, comfortable, anti-oppressive children. Everyone should listen, whether you have kids or not!

Let’s start Talking

This podcast gave me the words to start difficult conversations with my daughter. I’m grateful for their insight and answering questions I didn’t think to ask. You don’t know what you don’t know.
