A podcast about trying to be good at your job and a good parent.
When I became a parent, I had been working in my field for 10 years. Having kids had a huge effect on my work life, and I wanted to know how other parents dealt with the changes, specifically if work meant something different to them now, and if their work changed who they were as parents. Instead of discussing the latest conflicting childhood studies, the parenting do's and don'ts, I just wanted to talk, have a conversation about what it's really like as a working parent, the joys and the hardships, and to find some guiding inspiration to keep getting out the door every day.

An audio documentary about one of the most fearless and provocative Russian musicians of her time.
Karla Murthy is closing a circle. After a career in television, she finds herself wandering back to her first passion--music--and exploring it through radio. Her piece, "Maria, Lena and Me," is a tribute to one remarkable pianist, but more than that, it's an homage to inspiration. If you never dreamed of becoming a concert pianist, you'll find yourself entering that dream as you listen; the story and the music are enchanting. -- Jay Allison, Founder and Executive Producer, Transom.org
