Karen and Steve are back (this time, with better sound quality) to chat about some of the things that surprised them the most about parenting (and also to feature some of the responses they received from listeners).

After a one-week work-caused hiatus, Karen and Steve are back to talk about the parenting ... challenges when it comes to little kids and organized sports, and how they may have turned a parenting fail into a parenting win (to be determined).

Karen and Steve are joined by superstar Georgetown law professor Tiffany Jeffers, who, among other things, recounts the experience of having her older child diagnosed with dyslexia and how that has (and hasn't) influenced her approach to parenting.

To mark the one-year anniversary of COVID disruptions, Karen and Steve spend the first part of the episode flagging some of the *positives* to come out of the discombobulating circumstances of the past 12 months, along with contributions from folks on Twitter. They're then joined by their first *pair* of interview guests (and their first mother/dau…
 
Karen and Steve are joined by their long-time friend Lindsay Harrison, who (as those who have listened to the first Patreon bonus episode will know), was there literally at the beginning, and who has (already) had a remarkable career as both a trial and appellate litigator for Jenner & Block LLP. Before their chat with Lindsay, Karen and Steve talk…
 
Karen and Steve (briefly) reflect on things sort of returning to (COVID) normal after the chaos of the last 10 days in Texas (and the difficulties many of their friends are still encountering); an interesting choice of roles for one of their kids in a hypothetical future pre-K play; and other routine meltdowns before a wide-ranging interview with E…
 
So ... it's been a week. Again. This time, 2021 decided to see how Karen and Steve would handle an unprecedented snow/ice/freeze storm that knocked out power (and heat) to their house for four days, left them without drinkable water (or water pressure), and, well, was basically a miserable experience all around. After cataloguing their successes (a…
 
It's a New York-heavy episode, as Karen and Steve chat about growing up in the Big Apple before chatting with the person most responsible for the existence of this podcast—Lisa Rubin, off-air legal analyst for the Rachel Maddow Show and Steve's law school classmate. Lisa talks about the unique nature of her non-traditional legal job and the challen…
 
Karen and Steve are joined by Dr. Meera Deo, author of "Unequal Profession: Race and Gender in Legal Academia," for a wide-ranging discussion about diversity in the legal academy (and the legal profession writ large), what we're doing very wrong, and some potential (and hopefully uncontroversial) areas for reform, along with some of the unique chal…
 
What a day... Karen and Steve recap the big news (their older daughter's fifth birthday), and the even bigger news (President Biden's inauguration), before tackling some listener e-mail about whether they have any plans to move back to the "Northeast" (the geographic scope of which provoked ... some disagreement). After that, they chat with Lawfare…
 
In honor of President Trump's (second) impeachment, Karen and Steve devote the first half of the episode to a lay-accessible discussion of where things stand in Congress, and where they're likely to go from here.

On the first day of winter break, Karen and Steve chat about the unique challenges of entertaining younger kids over the holidays when nothing is open and travel is not advised; their own memories of winter break when they were kids; and that time Steve bought six gallons of cooking oil at Costco. They then welcome Rep. Mikie Sherrill from New Jers…
 
Episode 2 opens with a discussion of some of the unique challenges parents face over the holidays, and some things we've tried this year to smooth over some of the rough edges.
