Hillary Frank is a veteran podcaster and renowned journalist, and her podcast, called “The Longest Shortest Time” is one of the most recognized parenting podcasts out there. It started as a way for Hillary to cope with her loneliness and struggles in her early weeks of motherhood, and has since grown into an immense collection of stories from parents in all sorts of circumstances. Since its debut in 2010, it has won numerous awards, and tons of critical acclaim, including being on the 50 Best Podcasts lists in both Time Magazine and The Atlantic.
In this episode, Hillary and Liz chat about Hillary’s new book, “Weird Parenting Wins: Bathtub Dining, Family Screams, and Other Hacks from the Parenting Trenches,” as well as everything else she’s learned in her near-decade of listening to parents tell their stories.
We'll also hear form Motherly contributor and Clinical Psychologist, Ilyse Dobrow DiMarco, as she reads from her essay, "Turns out, there are some things we can control as parents." Read more of her work here.
The Motherly Podcast is hosted by Liz Tenety and produced by Micaela Heck and Samantha Gattsek. Music by The Blue Dot Sessions.
