"Parents are the ultimate role models for children. Every word, movement, and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent." - Bob Keeshan
Sara & Misasha are the co-hosts of Dear White Women, a social justice podcast exploring race, identity, happiness, and more in the United States. Our personal drive to leave this world a better place for our children became the impetus for this show, and each episode builds on our shared core beliefs in the humanity of all people and that we rise by lifting others.
In a nutshell: we are best friends who met when we were walking out of a racial identity conversation (we’re both half-White and half-Japanese) as undergraduates at Harvard. Misasha is married to a Black man, is a lawyer, amateur historian, and Megaformer fitness coach; Sara is married to a White Canadian, and is a life coach, positive psychology aficionado, and happiness consultant - and together, we have four very mixed-race school-aged children. Our podcast highlights the uncomfortable conversations that we've been having with each other for years, as we hope that the journey that we're on to be and do better can be one that others can relate to, in figuring out what matters and what you're willing to do about it.
