Thanks to everyone who has listened to Best of Both Worlds, the new podcast I co-host with physician and blogger Sarah Hart-Unger. We are thrilled to see thousands of downloads, plus reviews and ratings!
We will be releasing new episodes every Tuesday. Since today is Tuesday, episode 4 is now live! (That link goes to the Libsyn site where it’s hosted; iTunes users can of course find it there). We discuss a few things:
— Why Sarah has been blogging since 2004 (you’ll find out the first name of her blog, before she became “SHU”).
— Why both of us started out with daycare, and when you need to put yourself on the list if you want to send your child to a high quality center (hint: early).
— The downsides of daycare, and why we both eventually went the nanny route.
— Why, and how, to pay on the books.
— Why you should be honest about how much care you need, and why you should view childcare as an investment in your lifelong earning potential.
— Our loves of the week: reserving books at the library, and Modern Mrs. Darcy’s book recommendations!
— A listener question on how to stop thinking about work when you’re not at work.
This episode was kind of epic (an hour long!) Most other episodes will be a lot shorter, but it turned out we had a lot to say on this topic. Thanks so much for checking it out.
