Check out the latest This is Home podcast just up today that talks about the choice to not have children.
I had a great interview with Producer/Co-Host Erica Gerard, and was happy to be part of this podcast!
The mission of the This is Home podcast is to “tell stories that expand the understanding of what family means to be more inclusive and reflective of the kind of families we see and experience every day – in all of their beautiful and messy forms.” This podcast episode speaks to home when it means “families of two“!
The podcast can also be found on itunes. Thank you, This is Home, for discussing this!
