Mom Rage is a podcast dedicated to expanding the conversation about motherhood.
Mini Season-3 Finale
In this wee little finale, Edan and Amelia celebrate the end of season 3 with individual voice memos. They each talk about their favorite moments from the season and then read a poem, too.
Siri, How Do You Get Divorced?
Edan and Amelia share what they cooked and what gave them joy, and discuss being married under quarantine. Then, at around 37:00, they hear from three women who are essential workers: Keeley McNamara is a nurse-midwife in Queens; in Boston, Isha Agarwal is an emergency medical resident and Maggie Harrington is her family's nanny.
Edan and Amelia check in with one another midway through week 4 of social distancing: what they ate, what they watched, and two interesting articles they read. At about 39:00, they celebrate the publication of Mothers Before: Stories and Portraits of Our Mothers As Never Saw Them by playing calls from four contributors about their mothers before they became mothers.
Circles of Okayness
Edan and Amelia share their cooking joys, homeschooling rage, thoughts on celebrity culture and our own valuable skills, and even one pretty poem. At about 40:00, they interview pediatric therapist Hanna Novak about how to help our kids (and ourselves!) during this challenging time.
Alone Together, Cont.
Edan and Amelia talk about the anxiety some parents have been feeling about their kids' education during this self-isolating time, and they discuss how the coronavirus is revealing just how much work parenting is. On Thursday, before this executive order by NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo, they listen to two Labia Hotline calls and, at about 29:00, talk to midwife Kat Potthoff about how pregnant people can prepare for childbirth during this trying time.
You Never Had Control
Edan and Amelia check in with one another about their week (and counting) of social distancing. What made them cry, and what made them feel joy? They read an email from a listener and patron about paying for the podcast, and then they discuss a rap song.
