Mothered: Raising Kids Radically

Charnel Hunter
An illustration of a femme-presenting person leaning against a tree reading a book sitting next to a child. There are two other children playing inside the tree under the text "Raising Kids Radically." The kids are a variety of ages, gender presentations and skin tones.

Anita is thinking more and more about entering the club of motherhood. But first, she'd appreciate a reality check on things we don't often talk about — like child care and health concerns around pregnancy and labor.

Meet the guests:

  • Angela Garbes, writer and author, talks about the cultural baggage surrounding American motherhood and how she separates the signal from the noise.
  • Dani McClain, journalist and author, outlines how racial bias shapes the personal and professional experiences of Black mothers.
  • Katherine Goldstein, journalist and creator of "The Double Shift," talks about rethinking the nuclear family.
  • Anita's parents talk about their parenting philosophy and how being immigrants shaped their support system.
