Season 2, Episode 7: Amanda Micheli
Documentary filmmaker Amanda Micheli says after watching her mother's tumultuous marriage and subsequent life, she spent most of her life fairly certain that marriage and motherhood were not for her. When she did ultimately get married, in her 30s, it took her years to work up the courage to admit to her husband that she wanted kids. In her film Vegas Baby, Micheli follows a bizarre contest in which couples compete for a free round of IVF; she shot the film while dealing with fertility struggles herself. We get into all of that and more in this episode.
