This Is Us did it again. There is one show on television that explores how our childhood experiences shape who we become as adults like never before. NBC hit show This Is Us is masterful and enlightening while it engages and challenges us like good therapy.
Fellow mom podcaster Kei Haynes and I talk about all the moms on This Is Us as each mom has a different lesson to teach us. Next week, I share Kei's full "mom" interview about how she is changing the world as mom, podcaster and screenwriter.
Kei Haynes, a native New Yorker, is a screenwriter and podcaster. After taking a screenwriting class during her senior year at Duke, she would continue her studies in media at The New School. Kei has worked at two television networks and a film studio. In her current city of Austin, Texas, she has crewed on a few independent films.
In 2016, Kei and her co-host and husband launched two of their podcasts. One covers the NBC hit show, This Is Us, and the other, is a general TV podcast. Kei has doubled down on her screenwriting in the past few years. Outside of writing, she spends time with her children, at book clubs, and with her very dear friends.
