On this week's group chat, we talk about parenting and work burnout; look for our own traits, good or bad, in our kids; shout out some stuff we like on the Roundabout Roundup; chat with Robert Rummel-Hudson about the ABC series Speechless; and engage in some shameless self-promotion. Here's your road map to the episode:
05:15 Enough Already— Our podcast is dedicated to the topics parents complain about, so we thought we’d discuss what can happen when you’re just overwhelmed with how much work parenting can be —physically, logistically, emotionally. Do you ever feel burned out as a parent? Are you already weeping in a dark room while you listen to this? Us too.
21:44 Speed Round: Do Your Kids Take After You? — Recently on a speed round, we talked about which of our parents we're most like. So today, we’re asking what traits of yourself you see in your kids — and is that good or bad?
27:49 Parenting Roundabout Roundup — Terri likes the Lin-Manuel Miranda merch at TeeRico, while Catherine and Nicole both touted Buzzfeed articles: on finding your dog's proper Hogwarts house and hacking Thanksgiving dinner, respectively.
30:12 Interview of the Week: Robert Rummel-Hudson — We've devoted our interview segment to ABC's new sitcom Speechless a couple of times on this podcast before, but it's still delighting us sufficiently that we're going to talk about it again, this time with monthly contributor Robert Rummel-Hudson (watch the “bulletproof” scene he mentions at left or on YouTube).
45:38 Shameless Self-Promotion — Catherine has an article on VeryWell about encouraging kids to play oustside, and Nicole and Terri want you to follow their less-popular Twitter presences, @NicoleEredics and @SNNewsTweets.
