What are your thoughts on this episode? Let us know in the comments – consider this is a SPOILER ALERT for those who have not seen the video.
This is a great series to watch between you current binge sessions. Independent Lens is produced by PBS and has put out a series of short Q&A episodes addressing the decision to have kids. The videos are relatively short (under 9 minutes) so there isn’t a heavy time investment.
It feels balanced as the questions come from everyday people and are one-to-one conversations (unless a couple is involved). It is refreshing to see the candor and understanding on both sides of the topic/situation.
