We are two moms who are enthusiastic about having real conversations with other parents: hearing unique perspectives on raising little humans while balancing work, relationships and passions outside of parenthood. On this podcast you will find information free of judgement through helpful, empowering stories - but most importantly reassurance that you’re doing a great job. Our hope is to build a community where you will feel validated and supported on this journey called parenthood. We’re here every step of the way, so pull up a seat! The coffee might be lukewarm but the conversation’s not! We’re all just winging it.

Great Parenting Podcast

Authentic, intelligent conversations about parenting. I’m a dad so not every episode is for me, but the ones that are have great insight into parenting topics.

Are we done yet

Enjoying the honesty and grace from both Kristi and Kalea. They are putting words to such complex issues that all Moms face but don’t always have someone to talk to. Wise, gentle, honest are how I would describe this amazing podcast. It is a must listen!
