Cari and Kelsae discuss cultural humility, an important concept in social work and medicine, and the importance it places on continual self-evaluation and breaking up of power dynamics rather than on knowledge. They tie this in with allyship, and they discuss what makes or breaks good allies, especially allies of the LGBTQ community. They may or may not call out at least one prominent Mormon and discuss concerns about the ex-Mormon community at large. They have no anxiety about any of this.
