Have you ever been in a dinner table with new parents? Or parents of toddlers? Then you know that we eventually talk about our kids. Raising kids in 2019 is an interesting experience. There’s a lot more information widely available to parents, but at the same time, we know a lot less. Today’s world is complicated place for raising kids.

It was a joy to talk to Ara Chawdhury about her parenting experiences. Of course, we touched on plenty of filmmaking stories as well, she is after all an award winning filmmaker. But I didn’t want to miss the chance to have a recorded conversation about how we raise our children. So of course we talked about our kids, especially since we had a surprise guest.

In this episode of the podcast, we talked about her experience in the film industry in Manila, her story when she gave birth to her kids, how online content is currently taking over, and as I mentioned, parenting.

Enjoy the episode!
