Praise for The Longest Shortest Time

“I love Hillary Frank’s The Longest Shortest Time. I’m not a mother, and I’m never gonna be a mother. But that podcast is so good.”
—Terry Gross, Fresh Air

“As a parent, I know how hard it is to find storytelling about being a parent that doesn’t suck. That treats the person on the other end—conceivably a person with a kid—as not a stupid idiot that just wants simple, dumb, wrong advice. This is a podcast that avoids all those traps, and tells stories that are complicated and interesting and moving.”
Jad Abumrad, Radiolab

“I love babies and I love being a mother, but I can safely say I hate treacly or cutesy stories about babies and motherhood. I hate them. This podcast is a revelation, because Hillary’s stories are smart, inventive and unafraid.”
Sarah Koenig, Serial

“Hillary Frank is fulfilling a desperate need by telling stories that matter about parenting in a way that I have just never heard before.”
Roman Mars, 99% Invisible
