Food for thought

I found this podcast through “The Mom Hour” podcast, which I also listen to, and is part of the same Life Listened network. I consider myself fairly crunchy (although I am considered scrunchy according to their little quiz, which was fun to take!), so I enjoy listening to their opinions and product recommendations. I like that they are different in many ways, but also both parents, and often talk about “crunchy parenting”, if you will. It’s a fun and entertaining podcast for me and often leaves me with some food for thought and some more research to do on topics I am interested in learning more about. Larissa always has some great reference websites to delve into. Thanks Alison and Larissa!

Sisters from other misters...

I commute into NYC every day and would be lost without Larissa and Allison. They’re real. They’re funny. Best of all, they’re so fantastically different but come together in a meaningful way managing to entirely avoid any mom shaming or otherwise negative content. Thanks for all your work ladies. It does NOT go unappreciated.

Entertaining but take with a grain of salt

I’m always entertained but I often have to fact check. Some great information is shared but there are other episodes I’ve had to turn off after doing some extra research.
