This is the fourth installment of the Party in the Storm mini-series. The Party in the Storm episodes feature impromptu conversations that I have with close friends and family, typically over a glass of liquor. In this episode, I speak with my childhood friend Hayley Ahouse over a bottle of captain Morgans old spiced rum. We discuss our friendship and what it was like to grow up together in Connecticut. We also talk a lot about Hayley’s life in particular, specifically her relationship with her mother, her grandmother, and her newborn son Leo, who is now five months old. The episode really is an emotional rollercoaster: we go from being serious, to silly, to actually shedding some tears on air.
