In this week's episode we enter the world of social studies to explore the possibilities of restorying our past, understanding the present, and restoring our future. 

Our parent guest this week is Noreen Naseem Rodriguez, PhD, a professor of elementary social studies at Iowa State University, and a mom of two. We discuss what social studies is; pushing back against dominant narratives and explore hidden histories; and how to watch the new PBS Asian American documentary with our kids.
