I think accepting dirty money from Bayer is a deal breaker. Bayer owns Monsanto, and the ads on the recent shows imply Bayer's work is in sustainable farming. It's hugely harmful to allow such misleading ads. I'm sad to stop subscribing.

Description

The parenting show for everyone. Created by Hillary Frank; hosted by Andrea Silenzi. A Stitcher Production.


Episode Date
Parents Sometimes Understand

Let's just say this one's inspired by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.

*Note: there is some cursing in this episode — and some talk about the tooth fairy — so you might not want to listen with your kids.*

This is the last episode of The Longest Shortest Time! But it isn't really goodbye. Hillary is cooking up something new, probably a project about middle school. To keep in touch with Hillary and find out what's next, sign up for her newsletter and follow her on Instagram and Twitter.
