Were the "good old days" really so good? Was parenting easier back in the day or is that just an illusion? What about being a kid? Was it better then...or now? That's what I'm on a mission to find out in my new podcast, Parenting Then and Now. I've raised kids in four different decades: 80's, 90's, 00's and the 10's and boy, have things changed. Join me on this long strange trip, won't you?


Episode 21 - The Hot Young Widow's Club


When Nora McInerny suffered a miscarriage, lost her father to cancer then suffered the loss of her husband, Aaron, to a brain tumor all within weeks of each other, she had a decision to make: fall apart or deal with it. She chose the latter, and, although it took some time, made her the unique and enlightened person that she is today.

As the creator and host of the popular "Terrible, Thanks For Asking" podcast and The Hot Young Widow's Club on Facebook and Instagram Nora looks death and grief straight in the eye and provides a forum for others who have experienced loss to share, support each other and to move on.

On this episode of the podcast, Nora sits down for an intimate discussion with Sam about her experiences, her new marriage, her childhood and perspectives on death and grief, and more.
