(66) Feeling Other in Motherhood with Emily

Listen above or on iTunesStitcher, Google PlaySpotify, Audible, and YouTube.

My guest, Emily, and I talk about parenting a special needs child – the real deal of it, not just the saintly “special needs mother” archetype that can only be endlessly patient. Emily shares about her early motherhood journey and how she knew something was different with her daughter, the endless searching for answers, the lifelong theme of “othering” she’s felt, and the elevated expectations, stress, and beauty that parents of special needs kids live with.… Read more

(61) Taking No Prisoners with Zawn

Listen above or on iTunesStitcher, Google PlaySpotify, Audible, and YouTube.

Writer and feminist, Zawn Villines, drops lots of (uncomfortable) truth about gender inequality bullshit in marriage and parenting. We discuss the thing she heard in a mom’s group that shocked her, the kind of man who cannot be “fixed,” an equitable solution that isn’t just leaving your marriage, and innovative ideas about what we do about these inequalities for ourselves and our children. … Read more

(60) Feminist Dad with Jordan

Listen above or on iTunesStitcher, Google PlaySpotify, and YouTube.

Join me for this remarkable episode where a dude, author Jordan Shapiro, is doing the important work of fighting the patriarchy! Feminism is funny, apparently, because we laugh a lot as we talk about what he learned in the locker room that stayed with him as he grew into a man, the problematic narrative of men thinking they’re the hero of everyone’s story, subtle anti-feminist sentiments dads don’t realize they have, how they can shift their thinking which benefits everyone around them, and more.… Read more

Listen above or on iTunesStitcher, Google PlaySpotify, and YouTube.

This interview might be one of my all time favorites as Braunwyn Windham-Burke so openly shares her misgivings about being on the Real Housewives of Orange County, along with the parts she absolutely loves.

(41) Raging Against the Minivan with Kristen

Listen above or on iTunesStitcher, Google PlaySpotify, and YouTube.

Author, Kristen Howerton, and I somehow laugh our way through a conversation about some pretty deep topics such as infertility, divorce, toxic positivity in the face of miscarriage, and coping with life’s unknowns. We talk a lot about the pandemic, the similarities between it and Kristen’s past struggles, as well as what parts of ourselves this crisis is bringing out.… Read more

(Ep. 17) My Lesbian Parenting Fantasies with Denise

Listen above or on iTunesStitcher, Google Play, Spotify, and YouTube.

Today’s episode is in response to my first two podcast episodes. A few of my lesbian and queer listeners were like, “What the shit is this hetero life and marriage you talk about??” Their shock and disdain made me want to know more about same-sex marriages, and how much of our hetero marriage and parenting issues are gender based.Read more
