On today’s episode, hosts Rachel Vindman, Jasmine Clark, and Amanda Weinstein discuss how women have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and how we as a country need to value the work that women do, both in the workplace and at home. They reflect on their own experiences over the past sixteen months as they tried to balance work, childcare, and the emotional labor that all too often falls on women’s shoulders.They speak with Heidi Lewis, who recently went viral with a photo of herself working from her bathtub while entertaining her toddler. Heidi’s attempt to occupy her daughter while tackling workday tasks felt all too familiar for the millions of moms who were left without options last year when daycare centers closed across the country.Then Jasmine gets the opportunity to talk with the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus and Congressman from NY Hakeem Jeffries. They chat about being at home with their kids during the pandemic, how we can create policies that support women, and his favorite classic New York foods. Finally, our hosts raise a glass to well-earned vacations, local small businesses, and reconnecting for a few weeks without kids in this week’s “Toast to Joy."Suburban women helped decide the 2020 election.

On today’s episode, hosts Rachel Vindman, Jasmine Clark, and Amanda Weinstein discuss critical race theory and what our children are being taught in school about race and American history. They talk about the history they weren’t taught when they were in school—for example, about the Tulsa Race Massacre—and how we have to provide our kids with the truth about our history if we want to equip them to be good citizens and empathetic humans.For another mom’s perspective, they chat with mental health counselor and mom of two Juliet Kuehnle. Juliet shares how she’s approached anti-racism with her daughters and what she’s learned as a psychologist about how we can have these difficult conversations.After that, Amanda gets the opportunity to talk with New York Times best-selling author, Heather McGhee. Heather's new book is “The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together.” Heather and Amanda discuss what all Americans have lost by treating history and public services as a zero-sum game... and they bond over their love of economics, barbecue, and John Legend.Finally, our hosts celebrate doctors and nurses, their partners, and their dogs in this week’s “Toast To Joy.”If you want to stop politicians from banning conversations about race in our schools, please sign and share this petition.For a transcript of this episode, please email theswppod@redwine.blue.
On today’s episode, hosts Rachel Vindman, Jasmine Clark, and Amanda Weinstein discuss the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death. When George cried out for his mother, moms across America felt that cry in their hearts and began working for justice. But despite a year of protests and conversations, it still seems impossible to gain any traction on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Jasmine mentions a fellow legislator in Georgia who would rather talk about “Black on Black violence” than take any action to protect Black lives.And speaking of laws that have failed to pass, our hosts then discuss the recent Senate vote to block a commission that would investigate the attempted insurrection on January 6. From there, they discuss QAnon and right-wing misinformation more generally... what exactly is QAnon? And how do we deal with loved ones who have been sucked into Q or other conspiracies? To learn more, they chat with Lisa Reese, who lost her relationship with her sister over QAnon.After that, Rachel gets the opportunity to chat with Connie Schultz. Connie is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, columnist for USA TODAY, an author, and the wife of Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown. She and Rachel discuss the events of January 6th, how Connie deals with trolls on social media, what makes her laugh, and how she ended up with a trash bag full of boxes of hair dye.
