I found your podcast by way of Eliana Constanza and through you I’ve found Tina Strawn and now most recently Corey Leak. Thank you for using your platform to amplify the voices which otherwise may not be heard.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this platform

Hi Jen,

Thank you so much for this podcast. I learned about it from Facebook and the White Nonsense Roundup. I’m a white woman that grew up in the Seventh Day Adventist community. It happened to be a very diverse community and I really had no exposure to contemporary racism. We learned about the history but it always seemed in the passed. I had always been close friends with women of color and black women until my husband and I moved around to different places in the country and segregated cities. I kept wondering where all the black people were, it’s like I woke up in a white bubble and that began my journey with this work of understanding what has been going on and what is going on and what I can do as a white woman. I’ve also struggled with my faith and relationship with church because of racism.

The podcast about Woke Homeschooling was awesome and so helpful as I’m a homeschooling mom, also the brother and sister podcast has been so helpful with action items. I’m continually listening and learning and so grateful for all the information you facilitate.

Thank you!
