with Cindy Hval

Hosted by Cindy Hval and sons, Life, Life and Raising Sons: Not Necessarily in That Order, will offer a behind-scenes-look at the topics and inspiration for Hval’s newspaper column as well as her book by the same title. Topics include, family, food, spoilers, sports, social media, movies, books, cats and anything else that’s discussed at the Hval dinner table. Except politics.
