A reported show hosted by Katherine Goldstein about a new generation of working mothers. No parenting advice here, but rather three-dimensional stories that challenge ideas about our workplaces (from brothels to boardrooms) along with boundary-breaking conversations about our lives at home.
Season 3 features Katherine and co-host Angela Garbes, diving into some of the biggest topics of 2020, including talking with guests about fixing the childcare crisis, race and social justice, and money and identity.
Anyone else been feeling rage these past months? Host Katherine Goldstein and co-host Angela Garbes lay out a vision for Season 3 of the Double Shift, and make a case for why it’s more important than ever to be putting mothers at the center of the story during this extraordinary time.
