Hillary Frank | Pratfalls of Parenting Ep 119

Hillary_Frank_thumbnail_1_©richardfrank“I would hate for people to think of it as a ‘mommy’ podcast.”

The Longest, Shortest Time podcast creator and host Hillary Frank joins via the magic of Skype to chat about how she first recorded audio pieces into a cassette recorder with the help of Radio Shack and how that led to her producing work for This American Life. She talks about the not always beautiful magic of childbirth and shares how being home with a new baby made her want to create the show that has now become her full-time job. She also talks about being intentional in not creating a “mommy” podcast or a show that is just for and about parents.

“My day starts with driving her to preschool and some question inevitably leads to when are you going to die.”
