“Did We Go Too Far?” Episode 2: Radical Parenting in a Pandemic (With Guests Jennifer Rivera and Michelle Mascarenhas Swan)

Episode 2 of MG’s new podcast Did We Go Too Far? is here. In Episode 2: Radical Parenting in a Pandemic, we discuss the realities and spectrum of parenting in COVID times, from two badass, brilliant, radical mamas. In some ways, COVID has taken off the veil and made what isn’t working within the extractive economy all the more clear – especially its impacts on young people and those who raise and educate them. But how has this moment in all of its complexity also opened up powerful opportunities for families and parents? Our guests Michelle Mascarhenas-Swan and Jen Rivera share with us their experiences holding the roles of parenting, working, transforming, organizing and just being present (which is in and of itself so much!) We also take a look at MG’s framework on Permanently Organized Communities and its relationship to people raising children and the critical presence of caregiving.

About “Did We Go Too Far”:

Amidst extraordinarily uncertain times, many of us wonder: What futures are we moving toward? What realities are we creating? Movement Generation’s new podcast Did We Go Too Far? takes on parenting in a pandemic, and offers perspectives on Queer Ecology, Black Land & Liberation, and being okay with the unknown. Hosts Tré Vasquez & Layel Camargo speak with a spectrum of guests, like Charlene Carruthers, Leah Penniman, Morning Star Gali, other MG Staff Collective Members and more….with humor and lightness as well as the realness and depth we need to survive and thrive through this deeply transformational time, a.k.a. The Apocalypse…cause there ain’t no going back!
