On this week’s episode of the Italian American Podcast, when one of the co-hosts makes a special announcement, the rest of the gang ponder what it would take to raise a “certifiably Italian American” child in the wild world of 21st century America. Listen in on the secretly recorded telephone calls revealing the big news, then get down to the important questions, like whether or not to name a child with an Italian name, who can’t be selected as Godparents, and if you should teach them Italian or Neapolitan first!
They’ll discuss an Italian American approach to self soothing, and the importance of family time in a child’s life, among many other rambling and random topics bound to come up when this group sits around the table. But for all the fun, this episode hits on some serious issues around keeping the culture alive and evolving in a rapidly changing world.
Sure, none of them are parents yet, but by the end of this extra-length episode, you’ll be begging for a hard copy of “Bringing Up Bambino” to guide you when the Italian stork comes to your casa!
