Radical Rabbit Hole

On this week’s episode: Jamilah and Elizabeth are joined by Denene Millner. Denene is an award-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, founder and editor of the parenting website MyBrownBaby.com, runs the inprint Denene Millner Books, and hosts two shows: Speakeasy with Denene and A Seat at the Table


We have two listener questions this week. One is from a mother who is concerned about her teenage son’s rather conservative media consumption. They’ll also answer a question about how to teach empathy to a little one with a streak of egotistical behavior.


In Slate Plus: Jamilah and Elizabeth will be talking to Denene about representation in children’s books. Sign up for Slate Plus
