Rank #7: Am I F*cking Up My Kids? Food Edition.

Podcast cover
Read more

Every parent fears they’ll f*ck up their kid. But what if there’s a hack, one tiny thing you can control? Maybe if you get their eating right, you’ll set up them up to succeed. 

Spoiler: there are no hacks. Sorry. And writer Carvell Wallace knows this very well. On the podcast Mom And Dad Are Fighting, he digs into his trove of mistakes – and momentary victories – raising teens to help other people with tiny humans feel slightly less alone. 

This week, Carvell and Dan talk about using food to connect kids to their heritage, sussing out whether that fight with your kids was about you or them, and questioning whether “adventurous eating” is really a virtue. Hear Carvell's thoughts on the Tooth Fairy and you'll know that you don't need kids to connect with this episode.

Rank #9: Live: Pigs In Blankets: One Woman's Journey

Podcast cover
Read more

Mary Giuliani grew up as one of the few Italian kids in a mostly Jewish town, so she went to lots of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs – the Jewish rite of passage that comes at age 13. And at these parties, while the other kids were slow dancing awkwardly, Mary was engaged in a different kind of youthful discovery – she was falling in love with pigs in blankets. Little did she know that this classic appetizer would become the foundation for her meteoric rise to catering stardom. In this week's show, taped live on stage, Mary talks about what she learned from her Grandma Lucille – a powerful hotel owner when few women held such a job -- and how working crazy hours, and struggling with infertility, affected her marriage.
