Kid/Life Crisis

New York City comedians Katie Compa and Raquel D’Apice present Kid/Life Crisis, a bi-weekly podcast about an exhilarating, panic-inducing topic in many women's lives: deciding whether to become a parent— or to stay child-free. Katie and Raquel sit down with comedians, writers, executives and more to talk about their experiences, and crack a few (possibly inappropriate) jokes along the way. New episodes go live every other Wednesday. Music by www.bensound.com.
