About the Show

Rad Child is a new podcast that answers the age old question “how do I talk to my child about that!?”.

Each episode will focus on a topic often considered “taboo” or “too complicated” for children. The podcast will tackle things like race, gender, sexuality, mental health, disability and much, much more! Your host Seth Day will meet with a different panel of guests each episode and they will discus the topics from their own experience with children as parents, educators, nannies, doulas, etc. Guests will talk on topics they have experienced personally. Every single person has a different lived experience.The goal of this podcast is to create a space where those experiences can coexist so we can take them and use them to help raise a generation of compassionate, open, rad children.

Rad Child Podcast is made in conjunction with The Upford Network and Shift Book Box.
