Season 1, Ep. 12 : BONUS: How We Care About Care

Over 100 million Americans are in a caregiving crisis, trying to juggle the emotional, financial, and logistical demands of caring for loved ones across generations. Alicia and Ai-jen know exactly what that’s like—they’ve both found themselves caring for elders who used to care for them, in a system that’s confusing and wildly expensive. Where did this crisis come from, and what’s the solution? How can we shine a light on the invisible caregiving millions of women do? And how can we build a sustainable “care and repair” economy that prioritizes this important work for everyone? So many questions! We don’t have all the answers, but we can tell you what you can do right now to get involved and help build momentum for serious policy change.
