I think there’s a danger in one person becoming the expert, and the other person feeling like, “oh, that person knows way more than me, and they’re the one who is the real parent, who knows all the things.”

Episode two is here! I’m delighted to introduce you all to Jean Hsu, Engineer at Medium and mother of a baby daughter.

We talked about breaking the pregnancy news to her boss (Twitter co-founder Ev Williams), being the first to use maternity leave at her startup (and how much the company changed in the few weeks that she was out), as well as her strategies for parenting equally by taking shifts, and how there’s an app for that.
