Top Takeaways From This Episode


This week is not business as usual. The Brave Files Podcast is committed to supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and fighting for justice for everyone. We urge you to learn more, listen more, and speak up more. We cannot and will not be complainant as Black and Brown folx are targeted and murdered day after day.

Although the #PodcastBlackout is only one day, we do not make this commitment for one day or one week but for all time – – until it is no longer necessary. We urge you to stand with us and with the Black and Brown community.

DO MORE … Educate yourself by reading, listening, and getting into action.

There are a lot of great resources out there but here are a few to get you started.


Teach and Transform is an excellent resource for self-education. You'll find suggests reading for adults, children, and families as well as lesson plans for anti-racist curriculum.

libro.fm audiobooks

By choosing Libro.fm over other audiobook services, you support a local bookstore of your choice—and invest in your local community. They offer over 150,000 audiobooks via their premium platform (which was built with love from scratch) and give you bookseller recommendations for great audiobooks.

Proceeds from audiobooks purchased through Libro.fm are shared with your local bookstore. Your community sees 25% more money when you shop locally rather than at a national chain. More of your tax dollars are also reinvested into your community and you help create more local jobs because local businesses, bookstores included, are better at creating higher-paying jobs within the community.

Buying local is also better for the environment because it means less packaging and less transportation. Plus, digital audiobooks have an even smaller carbon footprint.

Purchasing your audiobooks from Libro.fm helps you nurture your community’s uniqueness! Local bookstores curate their selection based on what they know their community members are interested in. When you buy from local booksellers, you are participating in the conversation that shapes your local culture.
