Nikesh Shukla: Brown Baby
About Nikesh Shukla: Brown Baby
How do we raise our kids with joy and wonder in uncertain and – let’s face it – increasingly bleak times?
Inspired by his memoir, Brown Baby: A Memoir of Race, Family and Home, each week Nikesh invites fellow parents of brown babies - writers, musicians, chefs, comedians, actors and more - to talk about their parenting journeys and the highs and lows they’ve experienced along the way.
Experience a live event about parenting, raising our kids to be joyful and boundless in an increasingly scary world, and love.
About Brown Baby
A frank, funny and poignant look at parenting, Brown Baby sparks honest, self-effacing conversation about how we tell our kids about the world. Featuring parenting fails, plus the best (and worst) advice Nikesh and his guests have ever received, this is the comforting, uplifting podcast for anyone who’s ever found themselves searching for answers in a sleep-deprived Google hole.
