Where Was I…? is a podcast about primary caregivers who stop working outside of the home to care for their children full-time, and then wish to return to work or seek to otherwise reestablish their identity when their youngest begins school.
Our aim is to add to the conversation that’s been so thoughtfully created by Anne-Marie Slaughter and others around the issues of caregiving, equality, and the value (or devaluing) of the services provided by primary parents.

Anne-Marie Slaughter : The Devalution Of Caregiving – And Caregivers
In this episode, Ms. Slaughter reminds us that, even “from a (public) policy point of view, there really isn’t anything more important that we do” than caring for our children. “In a way,” she says, “society is free-riding off the efforts” of lead parents. “The very least we can do is provide the social respect and prestige.”
