What a needed and special message your podcast is sending out. I had no idea this podcast was so new - it's old wisdom rushing through the words you're putting out. I'm honored to get to spend time listening to Raising Rebels. My partner and I listened to a couple episodes yesterday and I can't tell you how many times we paused to reaffirm, have conversations spurring off what y'all just talked about, and just to give thanks. Her and I are in the process of figuring out what it looks like for two black and brown queer folks to have a child together, and honestly, just the opening episode was eye-opening. I'm engaged, I'm enthralled, and I feel seen.— Ash
My friend sent me your podcast last week. I spent the morning gardening and listening to it. It's been an AMAZING gift. I'm a white mother of three who does anti racist work in mostly rural Arkansas. I just can't thank you enough fort his podcast. I know I'm not the target audience but damn I'm so spiritually feeling the "Are the kids alright?" episode. Can't wait to hear more!— Meredith
A friend recommended your podcast to me after I posted a story of how I'm struggling with gentle, respectful parenting with my toddler. I just want to say how uplifting it is to hear you talk about parenting without shame. Keep it up!— Gabrielle
