I love 555

Thank you Todd for insisting on this episode! It was exactly what I needed. I have been listening to Zen Parenting off and on for a number of years. Every time I start up again I wonder why I stopped listening in the first place! I love everything about your podcast. Thanks for being there for me!!!

Woke tripe

Gave it a try for a few episodes suffered through their competitive discourse but they totally lost me and surrendered any chance credibility when they blathered on and on about how they “own” their whiteness and racism. They couldn't say enough about the rag white fragility and anti racism and we need to have these discussions with our children.
