The Longest Shortest Time

October 13, 2014


I just discovered a genius podcast that couldn’t be more relevant to my life right now. Each episode reminds me that I am not alone in this mothering game. It’s called The Longest Shortest Time and it’s really well-produced. Hillary Frank, of This American Life and other public radio programs, is the host. She covers really REAL topics about being new parents and babies– universal issues like sleep and eating as well as tragic topics like stillbirths and near death deliveries. The podcasts are fairly short, running about 15 minutes each and give you a glimpse into the life of other parents and caregivers, and how they’re experiencing life with baby. If you haven’t heard it yet, I recommend it. It’s a nice way to pass the time while I’m playing with Cielo…and it sure beats listening to Raffi for the millionth time!! Check out The Longest Shortest Time here, also available for subscription on iTunes.

p.s. just kidding about Raffi, I actually like him (insert monkey covering eyes emoji).

    Thanks for the recommendation! I’m expecting my first baby in March, and haven’t found any pregnancy/new baby podcasts I’ve really liked. I’m excited to try this one!

    Thanks for the recommendation! I LOVE This American Life and just got hooked on Serial. I’ll have to check this one out.
