People with Parents Podcast

The relationship with our parents is probably the most complicated one we’ll have and yet no one ever teaches us how to navigate it, especially when our parents get old. People with Parents is the personal story telling/interview podcast where we can talk about, figure out, and laugh about the role reversal and ever-changing relationship between adult children and their parents. - Created by Leighann Lord
