Equal Parts Podcast from Care@Work

Brought to you by Care.com, Equal Parts is a podcast for working parents who are trying to balance it all while caring for the people they love — including themselves. Being a working parent is hard. But you do it for the ones you care for, because they’re the ones you care most about. You can never be prepared for everything that is thrown your way — whether at work or at home. But, the Equal Parts podcast will try to make this a little easier for you. We will talk to experts, authors, and parents who will share their insights, advice, and tips on how to navigate parenthood and professionalism — at the same time.
