Episode 16 - Melanie Dale

For Real with Kimberly Stuart

May 3 2022 • 52 mins

Let’s talk about parenting and breast cancer and the pandemic and all the things that are distinctly PLAN B (C? D? Z?), but can we please figure out how to laugh about it? If that sounds like the way to go, you need to listen to my conversation with author Melanie Dale. Melanie’s newest book, Calm the H*ck Down: How to Let Go and Lighten Up About Parenting had me in stitches, even in the tough parts, which is, of course, the point. I think you are going to love hearing Melanie’s fantastic help on how to approach the life you’ve been given with laughter, honesty, and practical ways we can all lighten up.

Melanie is the author of four books, including her latest, Calm the H*ck Down: How to Let Go and Lighten Up about Parenting. She’s a writer for the TV series Creepshow and her essays are featured monthly at Coffee+Crumbs. For the last five years she played numerous zombies on The Walking Dead when she wasn’t writing or parenting her three kids from three different continents. You can find her on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
