Gabriel Roth is out this week, but Rebecca Lavoie and Carvell Wallace are here with Allison Benedikt to discuss taxidermied animals, being without your kids, summer camp compromises, and a listener question about whether to take a young child on a trip to Africa. They also talked with Bo Burnham, writer and director of the movie Eighth Grade, and Betsy Bozdech, executive editor at Common Sense Media, about the film.
- Rebecca recommends the use of Amazon.com to deliver stuff to kids at camp
- Carvell recommends the young readers’ edition of the book Notorious RBG
- Allison recommends the New York Times article “From Tokyo to Paris, Parents Tell Americans to Chill”
