On Episode 126 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie and Tesi talk about the new school year, the quality of education in America, and how we can use our Mama Bear instinct for good when it comes to our school communities. As Leslie and Tesi ask difficult questions about public education, they challenge listeners to think about school (and school supplies!) broadly in terms of educating the next generation of American citizens. They discuss their findings in their informal research poll of teachers and educators and share a special Mama Bear plan in the hopes of mobilizing listeners and shining some light into the world. (The springboard for this conversation can be found HERE.) Complete Show Notes can be found HERE.

Erin Odom grew up among the neatly manicured lawns of upper middle class America. She did everything "right" — she went to college, married the love of her life, even bought a house within their means. She never expected to end up living with her husband and three children and relying on food stamps and government assistance to make ends meet. On Episode 125 Erin shares her story with Leslie and Tesi and the three women discuss poverty in America, redefining the "good" life, and the Mama Bear response to the economic disparity present today. Listen in to this challenging and honest conversation between Mama Bears! For complete Show Notes, visit www.mamabeardarespodcast.com.

On Episode 124 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie and Tesi find themselves recording on Sunday evening (just hours before the episode drops), processing the violence and hatred on display in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. The two sisters offer a raw reaction to America in 2017 and try to find a way forward. As Leslie and Tesi rehash the raw emotion and extreme sadness of the weekend, they implore listeners to make the connection between overt racism and the systematic encounters that people of color face every single day in America and to amp up their outrage and pour it into social action. They offer resources and make suggestions on how to respond, listing everything from using JOY as resistance to SHOWING UP at peace rallies to DONATING to the Charlottesville NAACP or Meals on Wheels program. One thing they know for sure: They will not be silent and will not allow hate to grow. Full Show Notes are available on the MBD website.
