Reframing the “Good Mom” with Leah McLaren

This week we're connecting with journalist and writer Leah McLaren to reframe memoir. We get into her new fearless memoir Where You End and I Begin, which started as a book she was writing with her mother and in the end became a story about herself. It's a meandering conversation that started even before we pressed record — subjects touched on include Toronto art schools in the 90s, MeToo, victim narratives, and the traumas of mothering (both inflicted and experienced). TW: references to rape and assault are made throughout the episode. Please listen with care.
