Understanding mom rage: Minna Dubin
Minna Dubin realized “mom rage” was an international phenomenon after publishing an opinion piece in the New York Times.

Minna decided to do more research and found that mom rage was something entirely different from regular anger or frustration. In this week’s episode, she shares some of her surprising findings, and how it all culminated in her new book: Mom Rage: The Everyday Crisis of Modern Motherhood.

The misconceptions of motherhood: Chelsea Conaboy
Chelsea Conaboy knew things would change when she had kids, but she never anticipated how different she would feel.

She discusses her new book, Mother Brain: How Neuroscience Is Rewriting the Story of Parenthood, and the overwhelming nature of becoming a parent.
