Hide Yo' Kids: The Importance of Childcare w/ Dr. Susan Prentice - Feel Good Friday

EThis FGF starts off with a bang and quickly goes down the sh*tter. Tay slept in, Jeremie introduced a questionable character at a fundraiser, Lauren sprays coffee out of her eyeball and Brian legitimately almost vomits. Google image search "fatberg" and imagine how it smells. Then we get into something far more intellectual and important than all of that bullsh*t. We speak to Dr. Susan Prentice, a professor of sociology at the University of Manitoba, specializing in childcare policy and advocacy. We dive into the nuanced and tricky decision to open schools up fully during a global pandemic and how childcare is most certainly a social determinate of health!

EMelissa Humana-Paredes and Alex Hyndman both had dreams of representing their country while competing in their career sport! Melissa, a beach volleyball badass and Alex, a para-cycling beast!
