This unique podcast is a compelling window into the world of a contemporary mother and daughter navigating their relationship and our changing world. While the content on She Sounds Like Me is appropriate for older kids and teens, it often feels like it's speaking more directly to parents. With its spare production, meandering conversations, and wink-and-nod narration from mom Rachael, some kid listeners may not hang in for the full 20 minutes of this talk-show podcast. Parents, on the other hand, may enjoy the peek into Rachael's parenting approach and her transparency with her precocious daughter. Discussions of supporting Cyla through moments of anxiety, using gamification to incentivize completing chores, and navigating grief are snapshots of a novel kind of parent-child dynamic that is collaborative and open hearted. In the end, the show is all about the ways Rachael supports and encourages her daughter to grapple with the difficult parts of life.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
