Aransas Savas
Writer, actress, podcast host, Robin Hopkins talks life lessons from a crappy childhood. She chats family, parenting, childhood, and sometimes, running away from your past.
Hey Uplifters! We have a special bonus podcast episode for you today with Robin Hopkins. Robin and I (re?)met recently and discovered that we both host podcasts, have kids at the same school, and are feeling anxious about sending those kids off into the world. The timing of this conversation couldn't be more perfect since my "baby" becomes a teenager TODAY!! Please listen to this episode and then give us all of your best advice on how to find the balance between careless and crazy for these next few years. (Also, if you're listening, the word I couldn't remember mid-conversation is resentful. I guess I better ask my therapist why I have a mental block on that word.) -
