Episode details

Our 17th Article Club discussion is in the books! We read and annotated Amirah Mercer’s “A Homecoming” and participated in three deep, thoughtful conversations.

Thank you to Summer, Sarai, Shelley, Lorie, Bonnie, Elise, Jennifer, Kati, Lauri, Tamyra, Mahogney, and Amirah for joining the discussion. I’m very grateful. Also, I deeply appreciate Amirah for participating in the conversation and for sharing your brilliant piece with us.

But, Article Clubbers, the magic doesn’t end there!

Earlier this week, Article Clubber Sarai and I got the chance to talk with Ms. Mercer. It was a deep, thoughtful conversation. We talked about a range of topics, including how her vegan journey has led to empowerment and liberation.

I hope you will take a listen.

Most of all, I want to appreciate Ms. Mercer for generously sharing her time with us.
