Biz is joined by guest co-host Rebecca Blum this week to talk about how our children see the future. What do our kids think adulthood will be like? We revisit the games we played as kids that fed our fantasies of life as grown ups. If life turned out like the game MASH, then we would all be married to our childhood crushes and live in mansions. Do we crush are children’s visions of the future or let them dream? “Sure you’ll live with Mama forever. Your partner will LOVE it!” Plus, Biz is trying to lose control and we talk to Chandra Austin about her new children’s book, Qiana’s Braids.
