    This is our Moment

    This is our Moment

    Right now, all many mothers can think about is just wanting a break from the unrelenting domestic work that last year has heaped on us. In this special Mother’s Day episode, Katherine and Angela explore some fascinating, little-known history that has led our society to expect that mothers’ care work should be a largely uncompensated “labor of love.” We’ll also explore some forgotten moments in the 20th century with journalist and author Sarah Jaffe that gives vital context to how today’s society came to vastly undervalued caregiving.

    Then, taking inspiration from Black activists like Johnnie Tillmon and Angela Davis, Katherine and Angela lay out why we are at a pivotal moment for meaningful change and share some hopeful visions for a world where mothers’ invisible labor is collectivized, seen and valued.

    Healing Our Grief From the Past Year

    Healing Our Grief From the Past Year

    Things may get better this year, but that doesn't erase what we've all gone through. In this episode we explore, how do we grieve during this time when so many have lost loved ones, and even more have experienced personal, professional, and emotional loss? And for mothers, is allowing ourselves to feel our feelings an act of political liberation? We talk to indigenous activist Andrea Landry on how to unwind some of our most backward ideas about motherhood that are rooted in colonialism and how we begin to heal, personally and collectively, from the traumas of the last year.

    Business Ladies

    After all that talk about other people's finances, Angela and Katherine open up about their own -- and what's uncomfortable for them to admit about being mothers, creatives... and business ladies. They discuss some unvarnished truths about the podcasting industry and running The Double Shift as a business, and also share about the complexities of being a mission-driven enterprise during a time of massive economic uncertainty.

    The True Cost of the Pandemic for Moms

    The True Cost of the Pandemic for Moms

    When we think about what's happening to moms in America right now, it can feel like a series of anonymous statistics--not millions of life-altering stories. Angela and Katherine talk to a pregnant flight attendant in Indianapolis, a teacher and congressional candidate in Texas, and a performance venue host in New Orleans on what the last year has been like for them. We hear about what the pandemic has cost them -- in dollars, but also in other intangibles. All three women share how they are doing their best to hang on -- and find a new path forward.

    This episode is a collaboration with the Economic Hardship Reporting Project and The Guardian. To read a print version of this story, go here.

    Jenna

    Jenna

    In the Before Times, Jenna Mason had been cobbling together enough money as a freelance writer and restaurant server to support herself and her two kids -- she has shared custody with her ex-husband. When the world ground to a halt in her town of Oxford, Mississippi, the life she’d built for her family -- and the confidence she felt in herself -- came apart … not in one big crash, but in a cascading series of crises, one leading to another leading to another.
    On the one year anniversary of the pandemic shutdown in the US, Jenna talks about financial precarity, her mental health struggles, navigating unemployment and how she’s found a way to keep going.

    What We Deserve

    It’s been a dark year, so Angela and Katherine wanted to end the season with glimmers of hope for a more just future. We invited author and activist Mia Birdsong on the show to blow our (and your) minds wide open with a conversation about deservedness, the American Dream, and how guaranteed income could help us build a more feminist society.  

    Read Mia Birdsong’s Book, How We Show Up: Reclaiming Family, Friendship and Community. 

    Listen to her podcast, More Than Enough, made in partnership with The Nation, about guaranteed income.

    For more about self care, matriarchy, and reframing women leaving the paid workforce, become a member of The Double Shift for an extended conversation with Katherine, Angela and Mia. Go to thedoubleshift.com/join to become a member. It starts at $5/mo.

    Listeners, we want to hear what you thought of our third season and what you’d like from The Double Shift in 2021. Go to thedoubleshift.com/survey to tell us what you think.
