Here’s another quick podcast recommendation!
The Longest Shortest Time from WYNC is hosted by Hillary Frank, whose radio work has appeared on shows like This American Life and Morning Edition.
The Longest Shortest Time is a parenting podcast, but many non-parents listen because it’s well done and interesting. Hillary does not assume her listeners are parents, and sometimes the topics are aimed at non-parents. Recent episodes include: a woman who chose to be a single mother, questions kids ask about death, a woman’s struggle about the decision to have kids, and weird kid eating habits. The topics are real, honest, and grounded. They have a lot of guests, stories, and listener interaction. It’s just a very good podcast. I highly recommend for any age or kid-status.
