Fresh Take: Gloria Riviera on the Childcare Crisis

Evidence of the childcare crisis in America is all around us, including inside our own homes. But why is the system so broken, and what can be done? Gloria Riviera, news correspondent and host of podcast "No One is Coming To Save Us" explains.

Gloria Riviera is the host of the podcast "No One is Coming to Save Us" from Lemonada Media, which covers America’s childcare crisis and the people of all ages who are crushed by it. Gloria spent over twenty years as an ABC News producer and correspondent covering breaking, investigative and feature stories around the world for shows including Good Morning America, World News Tonight, and Nightline. She shares with us why and how the childcare system in America is broken and what exactly we can do about it, both as individuals and on a larger scale.

In this episode, Gloria, Amy, and Margaret discuss:

  • how sexism and racism fuel the childcare crisis
  • how the recent baby formula shortage fits into the picture
  • what lasting childcare reform looks like
