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 is great and i throughly believe that voices can make or break a podcast. voices are so nice to listen too and these two have a really good duo here!

These two keep my stomach hurting from laughing

I don’t usually consume a lot of multihost podcasts BUT this one is the exception because of how hilarious and authentic and slightly chaotic these hosts are. I LOVE the Bullet train for a baby episode-it’s just beautiful to see so many representations of family in our heteronormative world. ❤️
