Love In Common

Love In Common

We live in a world driven by deadlines, paychecks, and political division. But what happens during those moments in between? It’s those small slices of exchange that make up a life. Moments with neighbors, partners, kids, and caregivers. Coming to the table with three very different life experiences we are meeting each other where we are at- and asking the big questions about how to survive and thrive in those moments in between. This is the “Love in Common” podcast.

On the season finale of Love in Common we discuss Frank’s New York Times Best selling novel from 1992, Portofino. We are also joined by a special guest, Erin’s mom MaryAlice Bagwell. From unpacking how the story differs from Frank’s childhood, to how family customs can cross religious divides, we discuss all the spoilers and name drop all the Portofino celebrities. Take a listen, we are so glad you are here.

Plus Frank channels Edith Schaeffer for a little sermon about bibles and garter belts (not necessarily in that order). Take a listen, we are so glad you are here.
