Podcast Episode 2: Minimalist Parenting with Asha Dornfest and Dads Dealing with Depression

In this month’s podcast, we are very proud to welcome super blogger and author Asha Dornfest to talk about her new book, Minimalist Parenting, Enjoy Life More By Doing Less.  We discuss several tools and strategies for managing time, de-cluttering our homes, simplifying mealtimes, streamlining recreation, and prioritizing time for ourselves and our relationships.

We also talk about dads dealing with depression in the aftermath of the suicide of dad and blogger Marc Block. Mark was a single-dad of two children, and friends and family are saying that he took his own life after a long battle with depression. Our Producer/Engineer Josh Kross joins the conversation to talk about his own life-long battle with depression and gives some advice on what we as friends and family can do when somebody reaches out to us.
