    Let’s talk about being “Bad Mothers”

    This week's “longer than normal” episode is about doing away with the notion of "conventional motherhood.” We didn’t dare cut prolific author and mother-of-four Ayelet Waldman (Bad Mother, Unbelievable & Mommy Track Mysteries) when she had so much to share. Ayelet talks with Constance and Missi about the multifaceted reality of motherhood, by opening up about everything from her abortions, feminism, a writing career that happened because she was a mom, our internal relationship with shame and also her experiences micro-dosing LSD. Settle in for a “holiday-length episode."
