Episode 23: Dear White Women with Sara Blanchard & Misasha Suzuki Graham

LISTEN HERE

Let’s be real, there’s a lot of learning and unlearning that needs to happen for white people, especially white women. In this episode, I was joined by Sara Blanchard and Misasha Suzuki Graham, the podcast hosts and founders of Dear White Women.


Sara and Misasha drop so many valuable gems in this episode about dismantling white supremacy through teaching kids about the history of the n-word and having those tough conversations with your kids about why this word is unacceptable.


We also get into fears they have as biracial women with biracial children and the recent displays of hate towards the Asian community, why everyone needs to be more critical of the news they consume and the importance of remembering each other’s humanity. They covered so much more so be sure to listen and flag this episode because you’ll definitely want to reference back to this one.
