Episode 161: We're Going to Africa & Aren't Going to Save Anyone


The Mama Bears are going on an adventure! On Episode 161 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie and Tesi unpack their upcoming travels to the East African nations of Tanzania and Ethiopia. They devote this Mama Bear Mini to explaining how this two-week trip happened, what they're planning to do while in East Africa, and what they hope to accomplish while adventuring. In true Mama Bear form, they also take on the white savior complex, white supremacy, why we need to be very thoughtful when engaging in international aid, what they believed is a flawed view of volunteerism, and the dangers of short-term missions. The episode is filled with big questions ... and a lot of excitement.
