    There's so much going on in the world, and now more than ever we're aware of all of it. Do you ever feel compassion fatigue? We do, and we need to talk about it.



    Plus, the SAG awards, the Queen's response to Harry and Meghan, and The NY Times Editorial Board's presidential picks are up for discussion.



    Stay tuned until the end to hear how Caroline learned the hard way that it's a good idea to pre-screen tv shows for the kids.

With each other, with our significant others, with everyone! We're talking about how we move past the little things, the big things, and all the things in between.

We hope you feel seen in this episode, and would love to know how you feel about burnout.



    And of course, we’re hitting on some hot topics in the world of women!

    Ever wonder what house plants have to do with staying present and enjoying the “now,” while also looking to the future? Well, we didn’t. But we got there anyway. Right after a talk about how women, and especially female creatives, are coming into their own and refusing to let their work be controlled without their consent.

    If you’re anything like us, you scroll news reports reading only the headlines and spend copious amounts of time digesting the latest happenings of the entertainment world. And *maybe* you have the occasional conversation about how to raise moderately good human beings.



    We’re talking today about how to raise inclusive kids, and we’re adding your advice to the convo! Some things we do and some things we need to start doing are all on the table, and we’re also touching on how we as adults can model behavior for these little people (both in good and bad ways.)



    But first, the Emmy’s, do shows stand the test of time, and a little talk about poverty and homelessness to whet our appetites for a discussion about raising inclusive kids! Naturally.



    Looking for links on some of the things we discussed today?

One of my favorites!

I look forward to a new episode every week! And have recently fallen down the rabbithole of OLD episodes, and I love it.

Like a convo with your BFF

Continuing to enjoy listening to Caroline and Hannah! Every episode is like a convo with your BFF. I enjoy the variety of topics they cover - issues that effect all women. They are a good balance of serious and funny, and I really enjoy their banter between each other! I’ve gotten tons of book and show recommendations here that have been great! I am still working through old episodes, but I have yet to come across one that didn’t have me thinking/laughing/nodding along. It’s pretty much all I listen to while I commute!

Refreshing, honest, and motivating

I’m not married and I don’t have kids, and yet these ladies are extremely relatable! I often find myself laughing out loud in the car, or shaking my head “yes” listening to Caroline and Hannah. A refreshing, honest, and motivating take on being a woman in the 21st century. You will not regret hitting subscribe!
