BONUS: In the Family
While Shelter in Place is on break between seasons, we're rereleasing some of our favorite episodes. Today's bonus episode is a combination of two episodes (48 & 76), when we interviewed Dr. Joyce Sanchez and Dr. Jose Luis Sanchez. Listen to the end for special new outtakes!Disclaimer:It should also be clear that Jose is not representing the Department of Defense or the US military establishment and that his opinions are only those from his personal/professional standpoint. In this way, he cannot be held liable or in violation of any DoD/US military statutes or regulations that he may not agree with or be held liable or in contempt in any way when he mentioned that this country should be moving to have a "Health Care Act" akin to the Social Security Act, which enables all Americans to have equitable and high-quality access to medical care.
Addendum to episode 96: FIERCE
This is a little audio addendum to episode 96: FIERCE. This podcast has been, from the beginning, a journey of learning how to reach out to others instead of hunkering down, how to change and grow even as this world changes faster than we can keep up with it.The conversations I’ve had over the past four months have inspired and challenged me, and this was never truer than in my conversations with the thirteen incredible authors of FIERCE: Essays by and About Dauntless Women. FIERCE is a marvelous book, and I hope you’ll check it out for yourself.After the FIERCE episodes went live, it came to my attention that we’d made an error that needed to be corrected. In this short bonus episode, Edissa Nicolás-Huntsman speaks to her use of pronouns for Taté in episode 96, and Taté Walker explains what it means to be Two Spirit.
