Best of Both Worlds Podcast

Jun 11, 2019

Laura and Sarah discuss their latest favorite podcasts and are then joined by Emily Oster, a Ph.D. in economics and a professor at Brown University.  She is the author of recent release Crib Sheets: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, and she was inspired to dig deep into the data on how we parent when she first became a mother herself.  She and her (economist) husband now have 2 children, and we have a great and enlightening discussion on parenting myths and tropes that have no support in actual data.  In the Q&A, Laura and Sarah address a listener question about time estimation and avoiding overwork, particularly when transitioning from one field to another.
