My latest obsession is history podcasts. The greatest stories ever told, told well. What’s not to like? Here are some of the best ones. As always, tell me what I missed in the comments.
When you have a baby, you do so many crazy things it’s easy to think you’ve actually gone insane.
Spending up to eight hours a day breastfeeding in the first few weeks, transitioning baby to his own room only to wake up every hour of the night to check if he’s still breathing, lying awake worrying about all the ways he could die or hurt himself, spending hours doing laps around the house with him in a carrier just so he will sleep… All this on about three hours of fragmented sleep per night.
