Merry Christmas to all of you from WAF! This week we’ve got a festive little minisode dedicated to Father Christmas himself, the one and only Santa Claus. As is usually the case for us, we all had different experiences with Santa growing up and, as parents, our feelings on how to approach the subject of him with our own kids aren’t exactly straightforward. Do we feel ok lying to our kids about something so big? Is Santa a necessary part of the magic of Christmas? Would we rather just get all the credit for the presents ourselves?
This week we’re celebrating — it’s our 50th episode! We’ve come a long way since our first time in the studio, and on this milestone episode we have a blast looking back on it all. Our producer Adam joins us for the conversation this week as we remember the moments that cracked us up, made us proud, or were just completely mortifying. It’s been an adventure, and we thank all you listeners for supporting us along the way. Here’s to the next fifty!
While a lot of us might be missing family holiday gatherings this year, the upside is that we’ll get to avoid the uncomfortable, awkward or embarrassing moments that always happen when all the relatives get together. Whether it’s a creepy uncle, a political argument over the Christmas ham, or nosy questions asked in front of everyone, there's something awkward for everyone at a family event! And do we have the stories to prove it. Listen in this week as we share some uncomfortable situations from past family get-togethers (and realize that we’re the instigators of the awkwardness almost as often as our crazy relatives — who would have thought?).
Whether you’d describe the holidays as a magical season or a chaotic shitshow, that time of year is upon us! Listen to us break down how we feel about decorating, gift giving, managing kids during the holidays, and the festive foods we love most … and then we just go off on a whole food tangent …
Happy Thanksgiving to all you women AF! This week we take a moment to reflect on what we’re thankful for right now — and we realized we’ve got a lot of blessings to count! However you’re planning on spending Turkey Day this year, we hope you have plenty to celebrate as well.
