The (temporarily roughly bimonthly) show is all about childfree news and social issues, as well as defending Adult Spaces from improperly socialized kids, parents, and Disneyfication. Also a glimpse into Chris\'s childfree life, currently somewhat curtail

I've been enjoying your podcasts for a while, and love the people you interview. It's such a relief to find an childfree space that's not all about bashing children and being bitter towards parents, but actually has thoughtful and intelligent content and conversation. I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. First of all, your descriptions about going to a yarn store made me grin. I'm a knitter who gets excited at words like "silk blend", so it's always fun to see someone get excited about it. It's also great to see someone use knitting for geeky means. If you haven't checked out Fandom_knit, you definitely should. Secondly, when you were asking for ideas, I was going to ask about looking at any regrets a childfree person might have, but Ginger Campbell, who was FABULOUS btw, mentioned it at the end of the show. That was great, especially since I knew if I remain childfree, I would have some, but I still didn't think that meant that having children was right for me. Lastly, you read Water for Chocolate! I read it back in high school and was absolutely enchanted by it. I totally agree, having children just so you have someone to take care of you is a lousy reason to have kids. That said, I do think there's something to be said for having descendents in one's life when s/he is older, and it does ease a lot of the loneliness I think a lot of seniors suffer from. But then I read a lot of stories in the newspaper of seniors in China and India who talk about their children never visiting and how bitter they are about that, and there's always one Dear Abby letter every season about a neglected elderly person whose kids never visit except to ask for money. Anyways, great podcast as usual. Looking forward to the next one.
