Amazing!

I have loved C&C’s work since the SMNTY days and I am so grateful for the their work to highlight voices and perspectives I otherwise would not hear. Keep up the great work, you are making the world a kinder, more radical place!

Just pure love

I have been listening to these ladies since I was in grad school and they were the hosts of Stuff Mom Never Told You. I’ve learned so much from them, and so appreciate their humility in realizing their own blind spots as white feminists over the years. I have grown with them. I love this podcast and think you will too!!
