The Show presents a monthly conversation with longtime Phoenix writer Amy Silverman.

Her new column in Phoenix Magazine is called “Raising Phoenix.” In it, she writes about culture, politics and everything else that makes Phoenix the city it is.

Silverman's July column, “Home-Care Woes,” details the experience of two parents caring for their 16-year old son who has intellectual disabilities.

The Show spoke with Silverman more about this and started the conversation by asking how she got connected with this particular aspect of the issue.
