Fun! Appointment podcast listening!

This podcast is "appointment listening" for me during weekend nap times. I listen and cook or do the dishes and learn a LOT. I really love the personal approach - it feels like a lot of these conversations are happening at my kitchen table. I loved hearing the relationship advice and about paid sick days. I didn't realize so few people had access to paid sick days! I aso really enjoy the music! Keep it coming, MomsRising!

For engaged, thinking moms, daughters, grandmas… all smart women

This new series is absolutely fantastic. Each segment is like an in-depth tutorial on issues that directly shape the lives of women, which I can listen to on my mobile as I go about my day. And the speakers are like the circle of friends I always wanted - warm, smart women who get me and my life, and are passionate about the same things I am.
