Contributors include poet Hanif Abdurraqib, Yung Pueblo, Gretchen Rubin, Tune-Yards, Ann Friedman, adrienne maree brown, Mark Bittman, Zak's wife, child, best friends and YOU (call Zak with your advice at 844-935-BEST).  

Zak Rosen is the host and creator of TBAS.  He also co-hosts Slate's parenting show, Mom and Dad Are Fighting and he co-created and produces Pregnant Pause, How To Survive the End of the World and Freedom Dreams. He facilitates workshops and consults with museums, high schools, universities, and community organizations on various story-based projects. He's also a counselor at Radio Campfire, a live listening event series and a coach at the Detroit Writing Room.
