HerMoney Podcast: Politics, Parents and Caregiving with Soledad O’Brien (Episode 130)

Kelly Hultgren  |  October 10, 2018

We're not alone in this, and stories like this week's guest's award-winning journalist Soledad O'Brien's, help to remind us of that.

For many of us, the tables eventually turn, the roles reverse and it becomes time to take care of the people who took care of us for so many years.

Becoming caregivers for our parents is often uncomfortable, emotional and comes at a time when many of us are still revving up at work (and, yes, women are more likely to leave the workforce for this, too). Stories like this week’s guest, award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien’s, remind us that we’re not alone in this. Soledad gets candid about her caregiving experience, her evolving relationship with money and what she’s hearing from other women leading up to this year’s midterm elections.
