How to help kids (& adults) spot fake news with Joyce Grant

Season 1, Ep. 4

When it comes to bots, trolls, and conspiracy theories, I have many questions. So many, it’s hard to know where to start. And if I don’t understand what’s been designed to trick me, how will I break it down for my kids?


Luckily, I stumbled upon a book called, Can You Believe it? How to spot fake news and find the facts, by journalist and author Joyce Grant. In this episode, we talk about how to teach kids to navigate online misinformation while they are learning to process the world around them. What I’m learning from Joyce is that the lessons we need to give our kids are actually good for all of us.

How to break the bystander effect with Julie Lalonde

Season 1, Ep. 6
Last fall, a woman was sexually assaulted on public transit in Philadelphia. And there was a ton of social media disbelief – how could other passengers just sit there and not do anything?That’s why I reached out to Julie Lalonde for my podcast. Julie is a women’s rights advocate and public educator, and she’s been teaching bystander intervention for over 10 years.In this episode, Julie gives us life-changing tools for how to react when we witness harmful behaviour, whether it’s violence, hate crimes, catcalling, or online abuse. Ultimately, her tools are about creating safe communities and once I learned them, it changed the way I saw everything.This episode references sexual assault and gender-based violence.
