    Episode 10 - Elaine Barrington - First-Time Moms Over 40

    Psychotherapist Elaine Barrington runs two therapy groups for moms over forty who are dealing with leaving work, or changing work or making life changes when becoming a mother to kids for the first time. I talk with Elaine about how younger mothers and older mothers have different ideas about their identity, how there is no blueprint to parenting, and how it’s really your being as a parent — who you are — that’s what makes the difference to your kids.

    Episode 7 - What You Learn After You Know it All - Rob Jacobs

    In this episode, I’m chatting with my good friend Rob Jacobs. We've been dads for a while and as you'd expect, just when you think you know it all there is more to learn. Rob quoted John Wooden, the legendary coach, in our interview: It's what you learn after you know it all that counts. We reveal the real story of parenting young children after you are forty (and older!) and discuss the value of wisdom and getting rid of the baggage experience can bring. Rob is also going to tell you about UnSit, his company designed to get you up and moving at work. And we’re going to talk about being parents who have been at this parenting thing for a few decades.
