Welcome to the We Heart Mom Jokes Podcast. This is a series where Lalita and Smita, two comics who are moms talk to other comics who are moms about parenting in these strange times. If you are looking for useful tips on parenting, this is absolutely not the place for you.

13. Bonus season 2
We recap season 2 and also cover important subjects such as whether it's emotional cheating to consult a psychic, alternative uses for lavender bath salts, and hypocritical pickles.
12. You do you, nothing else works
We talk to Emily Paige about the importance of being true to yourself because the alternative is... not good. We discuss having mom jokes mansplained at us as well as being harassed for the mere fact of wanting to tell jokes. And there's a grand reveal near the end on our true motivations for doing comedy. Spoiler alert - it's because we like to have fun! As usual, if you are looking for useful parenting tips... do they have to be useful?You can find Emily at @EmPaigeComedy on Twitter and Instagram.
11. Playing a Changing Game
We talk to Danna Kiel about comedy, parenthood and chess and how all three are surprisingly similar. A defensive game only takes you so far. And you are only as good as your last move. Don't believe us? Try negotiating with a 3-year-old... or a drunk heckler. (Fact: They're not that different).
As always, if you are looking for useful parenting tips ...so are we!

10. Don't let the accent fool you
Mature topics and language alert! In this wide-ranging episode with Bobbie Oliver, the three of us have a grand time conversing in three different languages, all of them English. We talk to Bobbie about her unconventional path to motherhood. Let's just say, she could run a master class on embracing what life sends your way. We talk about standard outsider problems like daring to dream and being judged for our accents. The conclusion? Let them misunderestimate (sic) us! It makes the reveal more fun.
As always, if you are looking for parenting tips...are you open to cautionary tales?
9. No more niceties
In this episode with Dewa Dorje, we do things a little different. We get reflective about our love of comedy. (Spoiler alert: it involves our parents.) We also talk about what smells worse than Axe body spray. (Hint: Not using Axe body spray.) Finally, Dewa completely defies the spirit of this podcast and gives us an actually useful parenting tip. It involves bathrooms. It's a good one. Follow her @TheOnlyDewa on Twitter and @DewaDorje on Instagram.
As always, if you are looking for useful parenting tips...oh wait, this episode actually has one! Scream!
8. I saw it on the internet so it must be true
In this episode with https://www.facebook.com/jaciterjeson/ (Jaci Terjeson), we discuss important matters like career options for Zoom perverts, power moves on airplanes and whether, as moms, we are also allowed to be people. We also uncover a Seattle conspiracy theory involving umbrellas and, hold on to your hats, rain. It's fascinating! Big Metorology exposed! Finally! Follow her @JaciTerjComedy everywhere!
As always, if you are looking for useful information on parenting...we'd like to get you in on the ground floor with these magic beans.
