Parents We <3: Hillary Frank

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Up at 3 a.m.? So is Hillary Frank, with her podcast about parenting, “The Longest Shortest Time.”

Why start this podcast?
Radio has this power to make you feel like there’s a friend talking in your ear. You can feel so lonely as a new parent, so it’s nice to know there’s someone else out there, at home and up in the middle of the night, dealing with gigantic questions just as you are.

What parenting questions do listeners ask?

People want to hear about all of the big things: sleep, feeding, health issues, work. They also want to know how to make
mom friends. That’s why I started the Facebook groups—one for mamas and one for papas—so parents could have more personal conversations with each other. Parents from the groups have even started meeting up in person.

What’s been your most popular podcast?
“The Missing Chapter to Ina May’s Guide,” when I interviewed midwife and author Ina May Gaskin. I found Ina May“s Guide to Childbirth so empowering when I was pregnant. But I didn’t have the blissful childbirth that she led me to believe I could have and wound up feeling betrayed by her.

Tune in to see what happened by downloading this episode, plus others, for free at wnyc.org or iTunes.com.
