    Ep 9 - The Only One (Part 2): SMOG

    Part 2 looks at the experience of being the "Only One" from the perspective of adults who were "Only Ones" - one white, and one black. We discuss how race makes that experience different, and how that experience is ever present, even in adulthood.

    Ep 8 - The Only One (Part 1): SMOG

    The fear of your kid being the "only one" often pushes white families away from global majority schools. We'll talk about it in two parts - parents of kids who are the only one, and adults who were the only one. In Part 1, we're joined by Lauren from Pennsylvania. Look for Part 2 next week.

    Ep 4 - Sacrificing on the Altar of Social Justice: SMOG

    One of the reasons people often give for NOT choosing a global majority school is that they don't want to sacrifice their kids on the altar of social justice. We dig into this idea with Denise from Santa Fe.
