Ep 38: That Black Tax
33 min

For many of us, success and 'making it' also means you're expected to help out and support your family. Whether you're Black American, or a child of Black immigrants- that 'Black Tax' is often something you're going to be thinking about. Today we get personal with a story from Mwende Hinojosa who explains how What's App brings her Kenyan family together but it can also be very...taxing.

103: How to Teach Kids a Responsible Reading of the Bible w/ Pete Enns
You can tell a lot about people by their reaction to the Bible. That is what makes it so interesting as a sociological phenomenon. There are secular people who are largely ignorant of the Bible. Then there is the large spectrum of ways Christians engage with the Bible, from the literal inerrant folks to the infallible and liberal interpretations. My guest today understands the varied kind of baggage that the Bible can carry for people. Pete Enns is a Bible scholar, a professor, the author of several amazing books about the Bible, and the host of the popular podcast The Bible for Normal People. I had the amazing honor of being a guest on that show back in August. In this episode, we are discussing how to teach about and discuss the Bible with our kids. Show Highlights: * Pete’s personal relationship with the Bible. * Whether or not the Bible is appropriate for children. * How children were viewed in Bible times. * Age-appropriate ways to teach the context of Bible stories. * Irresponsible ways of sharing the Bible with children. * What needs to change in regards to our attitude about children. * How understanding that you want to give your children power changes your approach to the Bible. * Why biblical literacy is important even for secular people. * How to raise our kids with resilience to prepare them for those who will contradict the way they learn the Bible.

30. Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?
After perhaps the most important election of our lifetimes, the real work begins. On this episode, Kimberlé sits down with a brilliant group of political thinkers and leaders to analyze the 2020 election and the challenges that remain. The discussion includes insights as to how local organizers turned Georgia blue for the first time in a generation, what strategies progressives might employ to keep pressure on President-elect Biden, and why in 2020, President Trump appears to have made electoral inroads with every demographic but white men. The panelists also discuss Kamala Harris’ historic ascension to the nation's second highest office, despite facing unparalleled levels of misogynoir.
