The relationship with our parents is probably the most complicated` one we’ll have and yet no one ever teaches us how to navigate it, especially when our parents get old. People with Parents is the personal story telling/interview podcast where we can talk about, figure out, and laugh about our #ParentProblems with comedy and candor.

    I’m not sure how but I managed to go from a random conversation about women’s safety to love. Crazy really, since sometimes love is anything but safe.

Customer Reviews

MusicalMonstrosity ,

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.

Grateful for these laughs, sighs and lumps in my throat

I came across this podcast and it made me marvel at how things greet you when you step into the truth of your circumstances! The waning lucidity I am forced to deal with on each phone call and visit with my once fierce and tireless (ok, also tiresome) parents was validated in Leighann’s humor, exasperation and uncertainty! As I first generation Haitian-American, her point on the healthcare caste system was not lost on me, either. I look forward to her sharing more of her journey with her beautiful parents. I’ve got faith in you AND your ducks, Leighann!!
