Welcome to HBC podcast by MB episode 8!
In this episode, I got a chance to record a conversation with my mother, Parker Hamilton, and YOU get a chance to sit down and listen to the kinds of talks that a mother and daughter with the kind of relationship we have, have. We don't always agree on our perspectives, but that's where the respect and learning come in. While my mom didn't completely agree with my concept of privilege and/or default identities, we were able to have a discussion about the privilege of beauty, the default of partnership, and what it means to communicate competently with one another.
