246. The Answer to Caregiving Burnout with Ai-jen Poo

We Can Do Hard Things
We Can Do Hard Things
Calling all Caregivers! 

Today is a tribute to the everyday efforts of all caregivers who are holding up the sky for everyone else. 

Ai-jen Poo is here shining a light on why caregivers are exhausted, unsupported, and overwhelmed – all while doing the work that makes everything else possible. 

We talk about how to give the people we love the care they deserve without neglecting our own needs, and what can be done to right the systemic failures that leave caregivers fending for themselves. Plus, we hear a heartfelt message from a Pod Squader who represents so many of us in the sandwich (or “panini”) generation.
