Not only is no one is coming to save us, but we’re now in the fight of our lives. America has become an even more inhospitable place to conceive, have, and raise a child. Access to health care and related rights are shrinking, while efforts to advance gender equity, including infrastructure for child care, stall out. Every Thursday, veteran reporter Gloria Riviera talks to people on the front lines who are pushing society forward — from reproductive justice to child care — and shows you how to be a part of the movement to make change happen. No one is coming to save us, so let’s save ourselves. Presented by Neighborhood Villages.

    Gloria dives into the science of parenting with Chelsea Conaboy, author of Mother Brain: How Neuroscience is Rewriting the Story of Parenthood.

Get a nanny share, stop hoarding childcare spots

If you’re a privileged whyte family who is complaining how hard you have it, you really have no idea what your childcare providers and the most underserved and marginalized families have to go through! Have some humility and get a nanny share! Stop gentrifying and hoarding childcare spots! I don’t want to take care of your children, while you have me starving and housing insecure. Get a grip, look at what Portland has been doing about unaffordable childcare and actually speak to and support others besides yourselves! Oh and childcare center directors, are you really needed? Or just resource hoarding? I just see you sitting around all day.

Liberal Propaganda

I came across this podcast and was initially interested in listening as I am a mother of 3 young children. Unfortunately I had a liberal agenda shoved down my throat. And when she brought up Roe v. Wade being overturned—where was her empathy for abortion survivors? Why doesn’t she interview Gianna Jensen (or the other hundreds of survivors of abortion) on her show? I consider myself a member of the independent party, but this show is hog wash.

Wait a minute

I was fooled by the commercial I heard about this show. I thought this was a true crime podcast about mothers that murder their kids.. I didn’t expect this woman to be an advocate for the murder of children
