Such an incredible show

Thank you so much for putting your expertise on the air! Such an valuable resource on pleasure and consent based sex ed. As a childcare provider, it is really helpful to explore these topics so I can think about how I want to approach these subjects in a thoughtful way.

Revolutionary!

I am sharing this podcast with my 14-year-old grandson. Thank you!

Eve in NJ ,

Successful concept, enjoyable result

What a great concept! These are real questions asked by real kids. The hosts both give concrete suggestions of how to talk about these topics with young people and also delve deeply into their past experiences and adult understandings of the same topic. Also, the guests bring much appreciated diverse perspectives.
