Wow your podcast is phenomenal! Very thoughtful, insightful, inspiring, and honest. It’s refreshing to hear brave and hard conversations between two individuals, who identify as having very different backgrounds and lived experiences, as they come together to seek understanding and connection. What a gift to the world that they are willing to share the challenges of navigating race and equity during these times. I’ve listened to 3 episodes today. I shared it with my equity colleagues at school. I found it relatable when Emily mentioned she spoke at a high school last year and she received support as well as backlash. This is hard and continuous work. I appreciate her recognition of the balancing act and fear experienced by those who serve a variety of individuals and ways of thinking. I too find myself grappling with hurting feelings as I want to point out moments and functions that contribute to racism. I think there’s such truth in the hard defensiveness, denial, and ultimately fear of those who have benefited from the oppression of BIPOC. I could go on... so appreciate your work. Thank you!!
