Things may get better this year, but that doesn't erase what we've all gone through. In this episode we explore: How do we grieve during this time when so many have lost loved ones and even more have experienced personal, professional, and emotional loss? And for mothers, is allowing ourselves to feel our feelings an act of political liberation? We talk to indigenous activist Andrea Landry on how to unwind some of our most backward ideas about motherhood that are rooted in colonialism, and how we begin to heal, personally and collectively, from the traumas of the last year.
