Description

Not only is no one is coming to save us, but we’re now in the fight of our lives. America has become an even more inhospitable place to conceive, have, and raise a child. Access to health care and related rights are shrinking, while efforts to advance gender equity, including infrastructure for child care, stall out. Every Thursday, veteran reporter Gloria Riviera talks to people on the front lines who are pushing society forward — from reproductive justice to child care — and shows you how to be a part of the movement to make change happen. No one is coming to save us, so let’s save ourselves. Presented by Neighborhood Villages.


Episode Date
Replacing Post-Roe Helplessness with Action (with Leslie Mac)
2584

Many of us were left with far more questions than answers when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade this summer. A campaign called Day Without Us, happening on September 30th, is an opportunity to learn more about the fight for reproductive justice in America. Gloria and Leslie Mac, one of the organizers of this national teach-in, discuss how you can participate in Day Without Us, how to continue doing the important work afterwards, and why we need to think of other social justice issues like housing and food insecurity as part of reproductive justice. Plus, Gloria surprises Leslie at the end of their conversation by asking her about her favorite band.

Why We Need a Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (with Ai-jen Poo)
2878

Gloria talks all things care with Ai-jen Poo, President of the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

The Child Care Crisis Is Worse Than It’s Ever Been
2840

First, Lauren provides an overview of what’s happening on the legislative front, and tells us what we ended up with in the Inflation Reduction Act. Then, Sarah lays out the realities on the ground, where she says the child care crisis is worse than it’s ever been and why, in spite of that, she considers this to be a very hopeful moment, too. Plus, Lauren and Sarah offer up concrete actions you can take to make child care better in America.

You're (Still) Not Crazy. Childcare Is.
2740

Listen again as Gloria breaks down how we’re all breaking down: parents, teachers, and child care providers. And Kristen Bell joins to “call it like it is” on the cost of child care. Parents are languishing on waitlists or drowning in tuition bills. Teachers are underpaid. And providers can barely afford to keep the lights on. “We set families up to struggle. We put every barrier we can in their way. And then when they do need assistance, we demonize them as though they've done something wrong and they haven't.” With Lauren Kennedy, Sarah Muncey, and parents, teachers, and administrators from Ellis Early Education Center in Boston, MA.

How Kansas Saved Abortion … For Now (with Rachel Sweet)
2717

The first chance voters had to weigh in on abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade was in the reliably conservative state of Kansas. And, despite all odds, Kansas voters rejected the GOP-led effort to restrict abortion. Gloria gets the details on the big victory for abortion rights from Rachel Sweet, campaign manager for Kansans for Constitutional Freedom. Gloria and Rachel discuss how the campaign built a pro-choice coalition across party lines, what they heard from voters on abortion as they canvassed the state, and why she knows the fight in Kansas isn’t over, despite this win. Plus, could this victory be a roadmap for other states considering abortion bans?

How to Help in States Where Abortion Is Illegal (with Camille Bennett)
2350

Gloria takes a look at what it’s like on the ground in a state with some of the country’s most restrictive anti-abortion laws alongside Project Say Something founder Camille Bennett, whose organization confronts anti-Black racism in Alabama. They discuss how Camille is still able to help women in her state, what else conservative politicians want to enact to make life difficult for women in Alabama, and what made her hire security to accompany her at all Project Say Something events. Plus, Camille gives Gloria an update on a huge child care win she achieved in Alabama after her first appearance on the show.

Mothers Are Essential Workers Too (with Angela Garbes)
2616

We rightly celebrated people like health care workers, teachers, and grocery store employees during the heart of the pandemic as the essential workers who kept our country going. But Angela Garbes, author of “Essential Labor: Mothering as Social Change,” tells Gloria that we need to think of parents, and especially mothers, as essential workers, too. They get into why we devalue the labor of mothers and caregivers, how we are in a pivotal moment right now with regards to care in America, and what it’ll take to create the social change we need. Plus, Angela lays out the ways in which the overturning of Roe v. Wade will further stress the already threadbare care system in this country.

2469

Gloria is joined by Jessica Arons, senior policy counsel at the ACLU, to talk about the decades-long legal battle by abortion rights opponents to overturn Roe.

The Fight for Reproductive Justice (with Marcela Howell)
2893

Gloria unpacks the decades-long struggle for reproductive justice in America with Marcela Howell, president and CEO of In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda. They discuss the barriers to reproductive freedom for Black people, how the Hyde Amendment makes abortion access even harder for low-income individuals, and why we need to focus on state legislative elections to ensure that even more reproductive rights aren’t taken away.

Inside an Abortion Clinic the Day Roe Was Overturned
2495

As we continue to investigate what life looks like for pregnant people and parents in a post-Roe America, Gloria sits down with an abortion clinic nurse who was in the middle of a procedure when the news broke about the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. They talk about what it was like in the clinic that day, what this decision will mean for the country’s remaining abortion providers, and how it will impact those who already have difficulty accessing reproductive care. Plus, she tells Gloria about some of her most memorable patients, including girls as young as 11, 12, and 13 years old.

Revisiting How We Save Ourselves
3241

Listen back as Gloria chats with Elizabeth Warren about how we transform our country’s broken childcare system into one that’s accessible for all. “This is the moment to raise your voice. We have this opportunity to do it, but it's going to take all of us to push until it gets done.” Then, we meet a ragtag group of activists in Portland, Oregon fighting for a free, high-quality, universal preschool program in their community. And “Call It Like It Is” correspondent Kristen Bell joins once more to talk to you – yes you – about how to get involved in the childcare revolution. With Senator Elizabeth Warren, Theresa Ramos from Illinois Action for Children, and parents, educators, and activists from Portland's Universal Preschool NOW! and Preschool for All movements.

Are you ready to join the childcare revolution? Call or write to your elected officials! Here are some talking points to get you started: 

  1. Let’s talk about dollars and cents. There's a 13:1 return on investment for every dollar we spend on early education. That's a better return than anything else we do as a nation. Kids who attend early learning programs do better in school, are more likely to graduate from high school, have better overall health, and go on to earn more money over their lifetime.  
  2. We can’t have true gender equity without universal childcare. It's critical to getting the millions of women we lost from the labor-force during the pandemic back to work. And, it ensures that women are in all of the places where decisions are made, from the C-Suite to the halls of Congress. 
  3. High quality early education prevents racial achievement gaps before they even happen. And good childcare reform should mean that early education and care workers – who are largely women of color – are given the salaries and benefits that they deserve.
  4. Universal childcare is good business. Employers need employees; employees need childcare. The pandemic has shown us that it's pretty much as simple as that. Plus, saving families $30,000/year also puts more money in their pockets – money that can go to supporting local businesses and boosting local economies.

Even Superstar Athletes Need Child Care (with Allyson Felix and Olga Harvey)

Track and field star Allyson Felix experienced that firsthand and is determined to make things easier for her fellow athlete moms.

Allyson and Olga Harvey of the Women’s Sports Foundation tell Gloria about the challenges athlete moms face, what they’re doing to improve things, and how the lessons they’ve learned along the way apply to moms in and out of sports.

Women Are Barely Holding On (with Fatima Goss Graves)
2885

Gloria digs into a devastating report on how the pandemic has affected women and their families with Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center. The numbers in this NWLC report, “Resilient But Not Recovered,” are sobering. There are 1.1 million fewer women in the labor force today than there were in February 2020. More than 2/3 of the net jobs lost since the pandemic began were women’s jobs. Only 41% of mothers who left the workforce during the pandemic have returned to work, compared to 78% of fathers. Fatima tells Gloria why women are emerging from the pandemic in worse economic shape than men, what role child care plays in that, and what needs to happen to make things better for women — at work and at home.

The Hidden Life Skills in Simon Says
3190

There are so many skills young kids need to learn, but what can parents and caregivers do to teach them? First, Gloria learns about the seven essential life skills every child needs with the researcher who developed them: Ellen Galinsky, Chief Science Officer at the Bezos Family Foundation. Ellen tells Gloria that even though games like Simon Says may not have been conceived as a way to teach young kids executive functioning skills, they're actually an incredible way to do just that. Then, Gloria is joined by Slumberkins co-founders Kelly Oriard and Callie Christensen, who have created ways to teach young children about important life skills like conflict resolution and emotional courage through affirmations and storytelling.

What’s Next for Child Care After Build Back Better? (with Julie Kashen)
2517

Gloria breaks down everything you need to know about the future of child care policy alongside Julie Kashen, senior fellow and director for women’s economic justice at The Century Foundation. They get into the who/what/when/how/and why of child care reform: who is going to pay for it, what will this package include, when can we expect action, how do we get legislators across the aisle on board, why is it taking so long?!? And Julie tells the heart-wrenching story of a father who had to turn down his dream job because his family couldn’t find reliable child care. Plus, Gloria goes to her local grocery store to investigate the formula shortage.

Gloria calls up Liz Tenety, co-founder of Motherly and host of the Motherly podcast, to compare notes on balancing work and child care with a COVID outbreak in the home. The two of them talk about prioritizing self-care, acknowledging when you need help, and giving yourself permission to not do all the things.

Fighting for Change in a Child Care Desert (with Camille Bennett)
2896

Gloria calls up Camille Bennett, an activist, child care center owner, minister, and the founder of Project Say Something, an organization confronting anti-Black racism in her home state of Alabama. Camille paints a picture of child care in the Deep South – one that includes staffing shortages, a broken subsidy system, structural racism, child care deserts, tears, stress, and teachers and parents at their wits’ end. But Camille tells Gloria what’s giving her hope in spite of these challenges, and how she is fighting for change alongside her fellow child care workers.

Child Care Is Too Damn Expensive (with Elliot Haspel)
3019

Gloria outlines actionable steps for building a better child care system with author and policy expert Elliot Haspel. They discuss how we can work together with businesses to invest in a better system, why we need to reframe child care as a collective responsibility, and what you (yes, YOU) can do to get connected with child care advocates in your community. And if you thought that expanding the public school system down to infants and toddlers might be a way to fix things, Elliot explains why you might want to think again!

Why the Labor Shortage Is Hitting Child Care Hard (with Lea Austin)
2656

Gloria explores the child care labor crisis with Dr. Lea Austin, Executive Director of the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment at the University of California, Berkeley. They get into why so many early educators are leaving their jobs, where they’re going to get better wages and benefits, and what we can do to improve pay disparities and racial inequities within the field. Plus, Lea reveals why she’s more hopeful today than she has been in her entire career studying early education.

From Bad to Worse: COVID’s Toll on Parents and Teachers (Part 2)
1742

Gloria explores how the child care crisis is impacting the people living it every day by talking to a parent and teacher at Ellis Early Learning in Boston. In the second part of our 2-part premiere, she calls up some familiar faces from last season – Shane Dunn and Kiya Savannah. Shane, a parent at Ellis, tells Gloria about how his family has balanced child care and full-time work over the past year, and why he feels like the world is moving on without families with children under 5. Then, Kiya, a teacher and a parent at Ellis, tells Gloria about her life-changing promotion, how she manages raising her own daughter while taking care of so many other people’s kids, and why she’s still thinking about leaving the industry.

From Bad to Worse: COVID’s Toll on a Top Child Care Center
2282

Gloria is back and ready to tackle America’s child care crisis head-on. To kick off season 2, she calls up Lauren Cook, CEO of Ellis Early Learning in Boston. We met Lauren back in season 1, where she walked us through the nitty gritty of how much it costs to operate a child care center. This time around, Lauren tears up as she talks about how nationwide labor shortages are reverberating through the child care system, what she has to do to keep the lights on at Ellis, and how the ongoing pandemic has made a bad situation continue to get worse.

Where to Direct Your Primal Scream (with Lauren Kennedy & Sarah Muncey)
2013

If you’re paying attention to the news these days, you’ve seen that childcare is front and center! Congressional leaders are nearing a Halloween deadline to pass two separate bills tied to President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. One measure, known as the reconciliation package, could dramatically (and instantaneously) change how families approach childcare and early childhood education. To better understand what’s truly at stake for parents & guardians nationwide and what you can do to help get this legislation over the finish line, Gloria welcomes Lauren Kennedy and Sarah Muncey of Neighborhood Villages.

The Fight for Childcare Starts at Home (with Eve Rodsky)
1045

Childcare doesn’t just happen out in the world. It also happens in each and every home where a child lives. In this bonus episode, we hear from Eve Rodsky, the author of Fair Play (Reese’s Book Club October ‘19), about how to create more cooperative homes and families. “While we're waiting for systems to change and fighting for policies, we can also take agency to make things better in our home - to invite men into their full power in the home so that women can step out into their full power in the world.” For Eve, that means shifting away from a 50/50 division of labor to what she calls an “ownership mindset.”

4. How We Save Ourselves
3086

Gloria chats with Elizabeth Warren about how we transform our country’s broken childcare system into one that’s accessible for all. “This is the moment to raise your voice. We have this opportunity to do it, but it's going to take all of us to push until it gets done.” Then, we meet a ragtag group of activists in Portland, Oregon fighting for a free, high-quality, universal preschool program in their community. And “Call It Like It Is” correspondent Kristen Bell joins once more to talk to you – yes you – about how to get involved in the childcare revolution. With Senator Elizabeth Warren, Teresa Ramos from Illinois Action for Children, and parents, educators, and activists from Portland's Universal Preschool NOW! and Preschool for All movements.

Are you ready to join the childcare revolution? Call or write to your elected officials! Here are some talking points to get you started: 

  1. Let’s talk about dollars and cents. There's a 13:1 return on investment for every dollar we spend on early education. That's a better return than anything else we do as a nation. Kids who attend early learning programs do better in school, are more likely to graduate from high school, have better overall health, and go on to earn more money over their lifetime.  
  2. We can’t have true gender equity without universal childcare. It's critical to getting the millions of women we lost from the labor-force during the pandemic back to work. And, it ensures that women are in all of the places where decisions are made, from the C-Suite to the halls of Congress. 
  3. High quality early education prevents racial achievement gaps before they even happen. And good childcare reform should mean that early education and care workers – who are largely women of color – are given the salaries and benefits that they deserve.
  4. Universal childcare is good business. Employers need employees; employees need childcare. The pandemic has shown us that it's pretty much as simple as that. Plus, saving families $30,000/year also puts more money in their pockets – money that can go to supporting local businesses and boosting local economies.

3. Good Childcare *Can* Work
2762

Gloria explores the many places where childcare is working for parents – from Berlin, Germany, to Quebec, Canada, and even Patagonia HQ in Ventura, California. “Women are able to go back to work, families can actually afford good childcare, and the system more than pays for itself? Am I on another planet?” Kristen Bell joins Gloria (from outer space) to clue her in on America’s very own top-secret, high-quality, federally-funded childcare system. Plus, Lauren Kennedy and Sarah Muncey from Neighborhood Villages return to tell us how we can make this childcare dream a reality for all. With Caitlin and Charles Vestal, Pierre Fortin, Linda Smith, Ssgt. Alba Ruiz, and Patagonia’s Jenna Johnson.

2. Birth of a Broken System
3427

Gloria investigates where everything went wrong for childcare in America, and Kristen Bell joins to give Nixon a piece of her mind. “That's the sound of progress dying in the crucible of American politics.” Gloria digs into the shame, guilt, and divisions baked into our earliest day nurseries, and reveals how old-fashioned gender norms and blatant racism killed promising federally-funded, early childcare programs. With Dorothy E. Roberts, Sonya Michel, Alma Gottlieb, Ruth Hoffman, O’Niel Dillon, and Charlotte Riviera (yes – Gloria’s mom).

1. You're Not Crazy. Childcare Is.
2740

Gloria breaks down how we’re all breaking down: parents, teachers, and providers. And Kristen Bell joins to “call it like it is” on the cost of childcare. Parents are languishing on waitlists or drowning in tuition bills. Teachers are underpaid. And providers can barely afford to keep the lights on. “We set families up to struggle. We put every barrier we can in their way. And then when they do need assistance, we demonize them as though they've done something wrong and they haven't.” With Lauren Kennedy and Sarah Muncey from Neighborhood Villages, and parents, teachers, and administrators from Ellis Early Education Center in Boston, MA.
