wow... generation of fear. I remember growing up and my mother would allow me to stay in the car if we've been out all day and I didn't want to go into a shop or two. this could take 10 minutes or 30... sometimes you'd be left with the keys to listen to the radio. nothing never happened. As a parent now, my wife would never leave our kids in the car. I have and would. Nothing longer than 10 minutes. I have no idea how this shift happened, but it's ruining kids, parents and more.

I cried for nearly an hour while listening to this. I had to terminate at 23.6 weeks last April due to brain issues and so much of this echoed my own experience. I'm forever changed. Thank you for highlighting how awful it is on the mom to have to make this decision.

This would be so much better if the interviewer and interviewee did not display the most intrusive "vocal fry" I've ever encountered!

Well done. Sound quality great. It is nice to hear that motherhood is not a walk in the park for others as well. It reminds me of a coffee house chat with moms sitting around talking about parenting and child birth stories! I would like more episodes. Maybe branch out more into toddlerhood. I have one 3 year old and three 1 year olds. The babies are a piece of cake compared to the 3 year old!

I’m in grad school. I don’t have kids, and only a handful of my friends are starting families at this point. How did I even find my way here? All that aside, I really enjoy The Longest Shortest Time. I find Hillary Frank thoughtful and sincere, and, in my opinion, the topics are both interesting to and engaging for an audience wider than one might expect.

I generally enjoy listening to this podcast, with the exception of a few episodes. Hillary does a great job of drawing out people’s stories. However, I am stunned by the dearth of cultural diversity among the subjects! I can recall only one episode that talked about the parenting experience of a black woman. There is so much richness to explore in the unique experiences of people of color, immigrants, and second generation people who are parenting as members of a different economic class than the one they grew up in. It seems that most guests are people Hillary knows one way or another, so they tend to be white and middle or upper-middle class. But she needs to try harder and branch beyond her social circle.
