45: Judgy

It’s super easy to be the perfect parent … when you don’t have any kids. The three of us admit we sometimes judged parents before we had our own kids, but as moms, we found ourselves doing some of those same things we had previously given the side-eye. This week we talk about all the things we thought we’d do better than everyone else as parents, as well as what it’s like when we feel like we’re being judged as moms now.

The three of us have all found ourselves working at home in the past several months, rather than the on-site, in-office situation we were previously used to. We’ve enjoyed some of the obvious perks — PJ pants all day everyday? Love it! But how do we really feel about our makeshift home offices, and what’s it like starting a brand new job remotely? Work life has changed drastically for many of us in the past several months, and this week we talk about some of the strange new ups and downs of working from home.

37: Political Tension

Our country feels anything but united these days. The political and social issues in the news have been sparking strong feelings and intense conversations; it’s safe to say passions are running high. You know how it goes: One minute you’re casually scrolling Facebook and see an offensive meme, the next you’re being ALL-CAPS screamed at by your old college roommate’s uncle. In this episode we talk about the ways social media and rampant misinformation play a part in today’s struggle to have a civil or productive discussion.
