So good!!

This podcast is awesome! Episode 256 is very informative and I love that she was willing to put herself out there and have this conversation with two amazing women and asking the hard questions, having the uncomfortable conversation! Definitely going to continue to listen to Atomic Moms!

Great podcast!!

This has been my go-to breastfeeding entertainment. Ellie really does feel like that late night mom friend as she explores all kinds of issues important to me as a parent and educator. She brings an intelligent, relatable voice to dense topics. This podcast is not just for mamas, either!! My husband listens also. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.
