Episode 8: en(gender)ed Reflections
Greetings en(gender)ed listeners:
We are sharing a new format episode where my friend Michael joins me as we reflect back on the first six episodes of the podcast. Michael and I used to work together and served many students who were not in school or not working and were looking to develop skills to go back to school or to find a job.
The young people we were helping often had their systemic barriers exacerbated by personal conflict in their lives that were difficult to manage, such as parents who didn't prioritize their education or work over their care-taking responsibilities, or romantic partners who were not helping to parent, didn't support their efforts to better themselves, and/or engaged in deliberate patterns of behavior to sabotage their school and/or work.
I was interested in Michael's perspective on the topics covered in our shows so far, especially since the majority of listeners are, not suprisingly, female. I hope you will find this episode engaging and, for the male listeners, an entree into your own exploration of what en(gender)ed has to offer you.
Thanks for tuning in to the en(gender)ed podcast!
