    We Were Daddy’s Girls

    We Were Daddy’s Girls

    In This Episode of People with Parents…
    We have an interview! I’ve wanted to do more interviews for the podcast for some time now, and at last I got to have a conversation with Carole Montgomery. She is one of my long-time, good friends in standup comedy; and even before I started this podcast, I cried many times on her shoulder about My Parents because she has already been there, done that.
     
    We talk about what it’s like to “lose them” before we lose them. The little things that tell us, “Something’s up with Dad.” Seeing and admitting the signs of dementia, dealing with hospital delirium, and the UTI bonus round; the reality of nursing homes in the age of COVID, the national conversations we’re not having but need to and why elders need advocates.
    And how all of this puts aging in perspective.

    It’s been difficult to pull my thoughts together and away from the daily news briefings to do this episode; but it needed doing and sharing. Taking care of the last half of my Dynamic Duo, while mourning the lost half was already challenging. And then… Corona.

    #GirlDad

    #GirlDad

    In This Episode of People with Parents…
    In the wake of the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, there's a lot of talk about him being a #GirlDad. It reminded me of a piece I wrote back in 2008 called Lucky to be Daddy’s Girl: (The Flavor of Fatherhood.)
    I thought it would make a good episode as of the podcast. Enjoy.

Always Deep & Funny!

Great podcast, so much I can relate to. I really appreciate this show. Leighann is super funny!

This is the best, and very much needed

I was already a big fan of Leighann Lord and her comedy. After coming across her podcast and hearing her story of the surprise role reversal of children and parents, I instantly started crying because I was never able to fully articulate how and what I was feeling from my own similar story. Thank you Ms. Lord, first for the jokes and now for the podcast and letting me know that I am not alone in being a caregiver for my mom.

Simply wonderful

This podcast is a necessity for me. It enters spaces and places in aging not discussed openly with an excellent blend of hilarity and sobering poignant thoughts. It’s transparency and resonance are refreshing. Thank you for sharing these elements of yourself and your experiences.
