Two lesbians chatting about making babies and non-traditional families. Jaimie and Robin humorously go in-depth with weekly guests about their hopes, fears, and setbacks. The mission is to normalize, elevate and celebrate, while confirming that we're just like other parents, trying not to yell at our kids when they still haven't put their shoes on and we're 25 minutes late for school. The end result is a compelling podcast that amusingly explores the age-old question: what's it like to live as an LGBTQ family in a world built for the straights?

Love this podcast

It’s been hard to find a podcast I like more than this one! The information is helpful, but even more, it is wonderful to hear about families that look like mine will some day - a happy, imperfect, strong, and loving family with two moms! I’m in my late 20s and can’t wait until my girlfriend and I are at a place where we can start having kids. We don’t really have any lesbian friends, so this podcast has given me support that I’ve really needed.

Love this podcast!

I’m a podcast fanatic and ITOCT is one of my faves! I’m a straight girl from FL with three kids that I had the old fashioned way but I love hearing all the beautiful stories of the intentional families on this podcast. ITOCT celebrates love in a time in our history where there is too much hate. And Robin and Jaimie accomplish this with humor and joy. Thanks ladies for a wonderful podcast. I look forward to the new episode every Monday!
