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.

Raquel and Katie talk with their first male guest: Jason Jude Hill, who founded a film company, GrumpyFILMS, with his husband and business partner. We talk aspiring to be DINKs, coming out (both as gay, and as child-free), caring for a bag of flour, and maintaining friendships with your friends who have kids— and building friendships with kids themselves.

This week, Katie and Raquel talk with Miranda Forster, who’s going through the process of starting a family with her poker player wife. We talk babysitting (of course), George Michael, the sperm search, the Real Housewives, and loving your dogs less.

This week, Katie and Raquel sit down with Irene McGee to find out what happens when people stop being polite— and start getting pregnant. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) The comedian, writer, podcaster and former reality star talks about her great-great-grandfather Ira, Lyme disease, frowny faces, motherhood without marriage, building a one-woman show while pregnant, and her uterus’s favorite hobbies (endometriosis and knitting).

Katie and Raquel sit down to chat with Katie’s younger sister, Beth Compa. A lawyer in New Orleans, Beth has always known she wants kids-- from mothering her Cabbage Patch Kids to babysitting. Over the occasional hiss of the air conditioner, we discuss princesses and castles, negotiating career and family, expectations vs. reality, Lionel Messi, and the parents’ impossible dream of drinking coffee and reading the paper, alone, for an hour.

Katie and Raquel sit down in midtown with high-powered business lady Nicole Cramer, who, when not running worldwide advertising creative teams, is constantly working on her own projects. We talk growing up with the actual Supermom, finding one’s passions (plural), dating (or not) in New York, raising a child in the internet age, baking her grandma's cookies, and advice for the next generation.

Katie and Raquel talk with Leslie Russell, Raquel's sister-in-law's sister-in-law (we promise this is the last time we interview Raquel's relatives for at least a while). Leslie is a wedding planner extraordinaire, and a VERY pregnant mom-extraordinaire-to-be (since we talked, she's delivered a baby girl)! We talk about subway etiquette, sleepwalking, relationships with and without kids, having an actual Supermom, and the scariest late-night Google searches.

Episode 3 - Melissa Friedman
Katie and Raquel talk with Raquel's sister-in-law, Melissa Friedman, who with her husband runs a nonprofit theater company, Epic Theatre Ensemble​ (EpicTheatreEnsemble.org) in New York City, where they also happen to be raising their eight-year-old daughter, Imogen. We talk master plans, doing improv with a three-year-old, raising a feminist daughter in a sea of pink, handling the teen years (and whether it's possible), and watching her child develop from an offshoot of herself and her husband into her own person.
