Episode 350: This Isn’t Actually Normal. Plus, Scotty Iseri of The Imagine Neighborhood Podcast

Episode 350

16th April 2020

Biz and Theresa are reminded that this isn’t actually normal, even if sometimes our brains try to trick us into thinking that it is. Why is this so hard? Oh yeah…this is absolutely not normal! Also, we are not really doing “fine.” It is helpful to acknowledge that and to remember that we are all doing a good job during this very not-normal time. Plus, Biz revisits cake parenting, Theresa doesn’t want to wait, and we talk with Scotty Iseri of The Imagine Neighborhood podcast.
