    Our Mom on Getting Older, Parenting Advice, Raising Us & Weens Dating

    E136 - Our mom visits & weighs in on topics including design, death, and parenting teenagers. Some great stories from our rebellious teen phases come out & mom learns a little too much about what we were up to. Who is her favorite? Who snuck a girl into their attic? Did she know when we became -ahem- active? We talk finding our tribes and feeling comfortable in social situations. And then we do a tour of Julianne's online dating profile & check out some potential suitors! We have lots of laughs amongst many heartfelt moments with mom. We hope you enjoy this episode!

    Jamie Grumet: TIME Cover Breastfeeding & Attachment Parenting

    Jamie Grumet: TIME Cover Breastfeeding & Attachment Parenting

    E135 - We have a wonderful conversation with Jamie Grumet, known for her controversial breastfeeding cover on TIME magazine, now at its 10-year anniversary. With a background in anthropology & theology, she is the author of Modern Attachment Parenting: The Comprehensive Guide to Raising a Secure Child, its introduction by Dr. Sears & foreword by Alanis Morissette. Jamie shares her insights on parenting using these methods while educating us about other cultures, adoption, breastfeeding & children self-weaning at older ages. We find out what she went through going viral in such a contentious way at a young age, and discuss the psychology of what this represents; mothers judging mothers, puritanical ideals & sexual repression. Does she regret the photo session? And we talk about what we can do to educate future generations. Our own adult attachment styles are analyzed too (secure, anxious, avoidant, etc), as we wonder how we were raised. Spoiler alert: we know a lot about each others' childhoods. Our parents were best friends in high school, so Jamie is like our honorary little sister! We hope you enjoy this interesting discussion & support Jamie's wonderfully inclusive & accepting book, currently sold on Amazon!

    I’m Not a Lesbian But My Girlfriend Is! PRIDE with Stephanie and Michele

    E133 - Imagine realizing deep into your marriage, your typical husband-wife marriage with kids, that you are seeking a deeper connection. Imagine making that connection with someone who happens to be your same sex. Imagine falling in love. What would you do? How would you handle your feelings and the decisions you make? What's next? Hear the story of Stephanie Smith and Michele Baker, later in life loves (so many L-words!), and how they are managing their new path together, their families, and their thoughts on pride. They tell their Glennon Doyle and Abby Wombach meetup story, the one in which Joelle mixes up her lesbians! And not only do they answer our questions about religion and community, but graciously our questions about the physicality of it all. We even dish on our own experiences! They offer advice to those in a similar situation and paint a picture of what life can be like outside the closet. Thank you to our wonderful guests for sharing their brave stories. This is a heartfelt and fun talk that we hope you'll hear and pass along. Love is love, and the world needs a lot more love and understanding right now!



    Michele can be reached via her wonderful public relations and communications company https://www.MamboComm.com, where authenticity and core values are key to strategy. And Stephanie can be found via Joelle because they've been friends forever!

    Johnny Depp, Jessica Chastain, Steve Pieters, Robert Morse

    E130 - We talk about the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, Julianne's memories on set with Johnny Depp on "Mortdecai" with Gwyneth Paltrow, her thoughts on the Alec Baldwin shooting, Rob Huebel's and Paul Scheer's thoughts on the trial, and the wacky psychology involved. What is your own psych diagnosis? Take the test, linked below! Weens updates us on her grad school career updates in social work, specifically in the death and dying and hospice fields, while Jo ranks California colleges as of 20 years ago. Then we discuss an Oscar date with Jessica Chastain as we play part of our documentary interview with Steve Pieters, an AIDS activist, friend, and pastor, who tells us the inside scoop on what "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" Best Actress Academy Award winner is really like. We learn which star helped Steve get ready, who were the stars right next to him at the event, and lessons he learned. Also we remember Robert Morse, Tony and Emmy winner who you might know from "Mad Men" and "How to Succeed In Business Without Trying." Read a wonderful article about this friend and actor that sums up his prolific career, link below, as we reflect on the good, bad, and crazy of Hollywood!

Cole Ashmore ,

Great podcast!

Mouse and Ween is a really interesting podcast that covers so many topics from a female perspective, very refreshing and unique. Thanks guys!

KatFulton ,

I love these girls!!!

They are hilarious and goofy and silly and fun and I love them so much!!! 🤗

jlittlefleck ,

Need a Pick-me-up? Look no further!

Just when I thought the world has lost its sense of humor…I found Joelle and Julianne! I love tuning in to Mouse and Weens when I just want to listen to normal people talk about stuff that is just funny in general. They do a great job of keeping politics to a minimum, focusing on the lighter side of things that everyone can relate to. And OH—the stories! The stories about random celebrity encounters in LA are just the best. Overall - you get to relive the single scene, and share mom hacks at the same time :)
