NPR’s Ophira Eisenberg Finds Humor in Everything


NPR host Ophira Eisenberg is seriously funny. She’s also had quite a rocky road to becoming a parent: a life-changing car accident as a child; breast cancer as an adult; and, then, a miscarriage, before eventually having a healthy son.

And yet, along the way, she’s never stopped laughing — and neither will you, when you listen to this week’s episode of Call Your Mother. Jordana and Shannon talk with Ophira about resilience and Jewish humor; stand-up comedy’s connection to the Passover seder; and how finding the levity in parenting is  key to survival.

Plus, Jordana’s mom drops some knowledge about what new parents actually need to know.
