We talk to http://karindadobbins.com/ (Karinda Dobbins), a standup comic, screenwriter, ex-biotechnologist and, say it with me, mom. We chat about the therapeutic value of being a standup comic and if nothing else, that it's one way to get people to listen to what we say. We discuss cultural differences in parenting, but also some universal truths, like the undeniable the power of The Look(TM). And the fact that this is all one big long form improv, so we may as well have fun. You can find Karinda @KarindaDobbins on all platforms. ​As always, if you are looking for useful information on parenting....spoiler alert! It doesn't exist.

And that's ok. ​As always, if you are looking for useful information on parenting....good idea! Please share what you find!

Mature topics and language alert! In this wide-ranging episode with Bobbie Oliver, the three of us have a grand time conversing in three different languages, all of them English.
