Family and social media can be loving and bring us together, but they can get complicated and messy fast. In this episode, I had the pleasure of hosting Laurie Frankel, whose novel “Family Family” unravels the layers of family, specifically an adoptive family, as seen through the eyes of her protagonist, India Allwood, her adoptive daughter Fig and the daughter she gave up for adoption Rebecca. Laurie’s journey as an adoptive mother lends authenticity to the narrative, highlighting the complexities and the rich tapestry of relationships within a family, all wrapped up with her signature humor and depth.

We also peel back the layers of the online world, and Laurie and I acknowledge its power to both unite and isolate us.   Plus, our protagonist, India’s narrative in “Family Family” is a powerful allegory for our times, where the digital age is a double-edged sword, and the definition of family extends beyond traditional blood ties.
