The Longest Shortest Time

EPISODE #17: I’ve Got News 3

Tom and his wife Heidi

Tom and his wife Heidi

As we continue our series following Ellen, who got pregnant by surprise when the pill failed her in her senior year of college, we check in with her dad, Tom. In this episode, Tom comes to terms with becoming a 47-year-old grandpa, takes the father of his daughter’s baby for a man-to-man walk to turn off lights at two in the morning, and also offers some of the best parenting advice I have ever heard in my life. Hands down.
