In today’s episode Liz shares what she learned juggling the competing demands of work and family life during her crash course in eldercare, and we follow up on her recent article in The Atlantic magazine: “The Crisis Facing America’s Working Daughters,” which examines the hidden, often ignored troubles of working mothers with aging parents. Tune in for a spirited conversation.
