  1. Hi Laura – is there a reason you are not including the same text on better prioritizing the voices of Black women and other WOC on the podcast? I see that Sarah has started a conversation about this on her blog but it’s confusing you do not seem to be acknowledging this topic on your blog or on social. Do you plan to address this at all?

      1. And have lots of great guests in the works. We welcome suggestions — and always have.

  2. The onus is on content creators to proactively bring in diverse voices, not just wait for those voices to be suggested to them.

  3. Hi Laura! Can you further explain your thinking on going to concerts and other large gatherings this summer? The resources I’ve seen (npr and nyt have had multiple articles for parents on this) have suggested it’s not yet safe for families to go to these types of large gatherings this summer.

    I’m not trying to be critical, I was just wondering if you had seen some other resources I hadn’t come across! Thank you and loved this episode!

    1. @Courtney – just the general guidance that it doesn’t seem to be highly transmittable outdoors. A Phillies game (I think that’s what I said in the podcast?) would probably not be that packed these days. People would wear masks. Plus children don’t seem to be very susceptible to the virus or don’t get the worst versions of it. If they’re not regularly around older or immunocompromised people, it would seem to be just a matter of weighing risk.
