With the release of the Santa Barbara Independent’s online Indy Parenting guide, Alexandra Goldberg sits down with Indy editors Tyler Hayden and Leslie Dinaberg to talk about some of the topics they covered: how to make friends with other parents, toddler-friendly parks and playgrounds, and easy meals for dads. 

Then, Santa Barbara criminal defense attorney William C. Makler joins us on the show to discuss youth law — everything parents should know about their child’s rights and how to be prepared if your child is approached by police.

You can listen to The Indy wherever you get your podcasts. Stream on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Castbox, and more! Check out our Linktree for more information.
