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

"We make them parents. They make us people. Crazy people."

Created by comedian & author Leighann Lord

In This Episode of People with Parents…

I have an impromptu, live interview with comedic storyteller Sue Schmidt and comedian Jane Condon. We are in the dressing room after our closing night show at the Peterborough Players Theater in New Hampshire. I got to commiserate with, Sue who has 20 years in the caregiving game, first with her father and now her mother. And Jane reminded us where the sweet spots in caregiving can be. 

Please find and follow these funny ladies!
