Today we’re speaking with humorist, best-selling author and actual real-life teacher Robert Wilder about raising teens! We first discovered his hilarious Daddy Needs a Drink way back in the early CMP days, and we’ve been fans ever since. Break up your day with this fun discussion about his much-lauded first YA novel, Nickel, horror stories to make you laugh out loud, and tips to help you get through it all — whether you’re in the thick of it, been there/survived that, or it still feels a million years away.
Listen right here, or check out Spawned with Kristen + Liz on iTunes. Now! This very minute! You will not regret it, and the dishes can totally wait, promise.
