the Parenthetical (Science) Podcast

where parenting myths and mommy wars come to die

Being a parent is tough. It's sometimes hard to keep kids alive, much less turn them into decent human beings. But frequently, parents stress more than they need to. Hidden among the passionate disagreements, we can often find evidence that helps us make rational decisions (or even realize that the thing we worried about isn't all that important, after all). In this podcast, we discuss a variety of topics, examining the evidence and discussing them with experts in each area.

Look, you're not a perfect parent, but nobody else is, either. And you're perfectly adequate (probably). So put the kids to bed, pour a glass of whatever, and join us.
