Ep. 104 Transracial Adoption, Miscarriage, and Rainbow Babies with Jamie’s Girlfran, Jeena Wilder!
We are super excited to share this raw and very vulnerable conversation we were able to have with Jeena Wilder. She’s not only a mama to 4 kiddos, but she is an ultimate boss babe! Her family is truly the modern all American family and it is so inspiring! She absolutely radiates positivity over on IG! Jeena and her hubby are an interracial couple with four beautiful children; one adopted and the others biological, but alllll loved the same!    5:59 - Jeena shares about life right now and also shares some exciting news! 15:12 - Jeena shares about the difficulties of going through a miscarriage as well as getting pregnant during the pandemic.  18:06 - Doug asks, with the pandemic going on, is your birth plan different than when you had your other children?  25:08 - Jeena shares about a time when someone questioned in front of her children if she was her daughter’s mother.   29:43 - Doug asks, how did you bridge the conversation or did you and your husband prepare for the day you had to give that talk?  39:56 - Jamie asks, when people say that their children are too young to talk about race or they don’t see color, what is your response? 43:41 - Jamie asks, if I am a momma, white, black, gray, yellow, whatever and I want to teach my kid about racism, what are some steps that I could take to ensure that my child is growing up with more of an open mind? 47:16 - Doug asks, as far as raising your children, is being Haitian part of raising them as well?  49:01 - Jamie asks, I want to clarify for those listening, so you have 2 biracial kids that you birthed and then you have your daughter who you adopted at the age 2 ½ or so? Is that right? 49:51 - Jamie asks, what brought your daughter to your family? What’s her story?  53:56 - Jamie asks, what is the biggest challenge you have had to face since adopting your daughter because as you know I am really interested! 59:00 - Jeena encourages Jamie and Doug that it is important to understand that adoption is not for everyone, but if you are considering things, she encourages you to look into fostering.     Check back next Friday for another fantastic episode!

I Just Believe in Parties!
This week, Kate couldn’t help but wonder if influencers who refuse to acknowledge issues important to their following are perhaps still hung up on that time Samantha Jones (RIP) said she doesn't believe in the Republican or Democratic party, she just believes in parties!!! This episode (outside of comparing influencers that are unwilling to engage in substantive discussions to decorative cocktail napkins) is a mostly serious stream of consciousness about the discussion surrounding influencers' responses to the attempted coup that took place at the US Capitol January 6th. Similar to previous episodes surrounding COVID and social injustice, Kate details how she approaches politically adjacent topics as both an influencer and observer, talks about what she (and other listeners) have said they think are non-negotiables, explores the nuance of how and why people choose not to engage, the implications of not doing so, and the importance of consistency in values-driven content going forward. There's probably an Emily in Paris or Turtle Freak Lane rant in there somewhere too? She can't help herself.
