The Longest Shortest Time

EPISODE #64: Should I Have Kids?

We have been hearing from a TON of you lately, telling us you can’t decide whether or not to become a parent. Those emails have really been resonating with LST producer Joanna Solotaroff (pictured above). Joanna does not have any kids, and as you can imagine, working on this show has made her swing wildly back and forth over how she feels about starting a family of her own.

Recently, over drinks, Joanna told me she’d had an epiphany on the should-I-or-shouldn’t-I question. But she said she wanted to talk about it on tape. Tune in to this episode to hear her big reveal.

Plus, Joanna calls her mom to get clarity on the subject. And she learns some things she never knew about her own unconventional start in life.
