Based off her popular and darkly humorous Facebook page, blog and forthcoming novel of the same name, author Brandy Ferner takes her love of adult conversation to the air as she spears the injustices of modern parenting and continues her tradition of saying things out loud that others won’t. As a lover of truth and all things dark comedy, she and special guests partake in real talk about everything relating to motherhood – marriage post kids, birth, the never-ending micromanagement of screen time, sex, chronic-illness, Snoop Dogg, social issues, homeschooling, meditation, the revolt of the aging uterus, postpartum depletion, writing, the joke that is half-day kindergarten, and more. This is not a podcast with annoying parenting advice. Instead, Adult Conversation aims to break down the façade of “perfect” parenting with its balanced mix of wit, inappropriateness, compassion and validation, and can be considered a form of self-care, especially when listened to while locked in a bathroom alone. Or if your people will stage a full-on revolt at being separated from you, pop in some earbuds while folding laundry, wiping butts or waiting in the carpool line. Warning: this podcast can be inappropriate, just like parenting.

I sometimes listen twice because it’s so much good stuff. A great balance of insightful guests and witty, relatable commentary. Such a desperately needed way to feel like I’m not alone in my mom plight.
Bravo! Keep it up!

Two thumbs up!!
Parenting podcast that gets real
I so enjoy listening every week! Brandi always has interesting guests with insightful takes on dealing with motherhood when society isn’t exactly structured to support and nurture mothers. From de-cluttering to the patriarchy, the topics are always equal parts interesting, thought-provoking, and laugh-out-loud funny (thank goodness I’m usually in my car when I listen!) It helps me feel like I’m not alone on this parenting journey 😊
