The I Can Relate crew wanted at least one more episode. There was one more topic they needed to tackle. In this episode, Chidera leads a frank conversation with Hudson, Devynn and Rylee about diversity and race and getting comfortable participating in conversations about one of our most uncomfortable topics.
Hudson, Chidera, Rylee and Devynn recorded this episode via video conference while in the midst of the region's stay-at-home orders early in the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. They wanted to take the opportunity to talk about mental wellness during stressful times, and what they had learned about themselves during weeks isolation and finishing the 2019-2020 school year through online learning.
Empathy is driving force behind the show's title. Chidera, Rylee, Hudson and Devynn invite alternative high school principal Andy Campbell onto the show to talk about what drives him to connect with his students and why empathic connections are a key to success for both him and the teens under his tutelage.
Welcome to I Can Relate, a podcast for teens, about teens & by teens. Hosts Devynn, Rylee, Chidera, Hudson and Olivia bring in a special guest to talk about what drives them to use their voice for change and why it's important their generation continue to speak up.
