A few months ago, Amber met Shelby and the two began talking about what life is like through a non-binary lens. Amber was so moved by her story that she invited Shelby to join her on The Tote + Pears Podcast. Listen in as the two continue their conversation about life through a non-binary lens.

Amber and Jen Heazlewood, Creative Director and Head of Experience Design at R/GA London, talk about eliminating unconscious biases in our products, services and designs.


When she asked her teenage daughter how school was going, Dr. Kim Scott didn't expect to hear: 'I'd be fine as long as I render myself invisible.' In this episode, Amber sits down with Dr. Scott to discuss the erasure of women of color in public spaces and what she's doing to fix it.

Aging Parents

When it comes to caring for aging parents, women — daughters, especially — are twice as likely as men to take on the responsibility (both physically/emotionally and financially).

Having it All

For the woman who will never have a tidy, peaceful life — there is still happiness — as long as she asks herself the right questions. On this episode, professor and author, Marie Myung-Ok Lee, redefines what it means to 'have it all.'

Views on Feminism

Women of color have a complex relationship with feminism — understanding how their multiple identities intersect increases a brand's ability to connect with them. On this episode, Amber brings together three women of color to explore what happens when gender, race and culture collide — and why brands/marketers should care.

Unchecked Biases

With advancements in the everyday use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, researchers are finding that troubling human biases are now making their way into our tech products, as well. Amber Anderson talks with scholar and best-selling author, Safiya Umoja Noble, Ph.D., about the consequences of unchecked biases in tech.

Beyond Gender

Amber and T+P's lead content strategist, Stephanie Conner, discuss how a woman's identity is more than her gender — and how that can (and should) affect the approach brands take to create their personas, products, services and campaigns.
