    I FOUGHT THE LAW (SCHOOL) and the law won - featuring friend of the pod and lawyer, Corinne from Act YA age!

    If you can't do, do law. A phrase that was just made up right now.

    In this episode, we discuss what going to law school (and beyond!) is really like. Featuring questions such as:



    Would you have done something else if you could?
    Did you like it? (Spoiler alert: yes, Corinne did!)
    What's life like now?
    And more!


    Thanks to our special guest Corinne, host of Act YA Age podcast. Find more here: https://www.actyaage.com/

    Kiddos? YES! Choosing to have Children with friend of the pod Jessie, host of The Daily Knightley Podcast

    Kiddos? YES! Choosing to have Children with friend of the pod Jessie, host of The Daily Knightley Podcast

    Kiddos? YES!

    This month is exactly the opposite of what we talked about last month: choosing to have kids. We discuss the motivations behind having kids, what pregnancy is like, and what actually, ya know, taking care of kids after they are born is like.


    Again, there is no wrong answer! We just wanted to have both perspectives on the podcast in case you also had questions. We also want to thank our friend Jessie for being open and honest with us - you can find her on The Daily Knightley podcast: http://thedailyknightley.com/

    Kiddos? NO! Childless by Choice with friend of the pod Tessa Swehla

    Kiddos? NO! Childless by Choice with friend of the pod Tessa Swehla

    Do you want kids?

    Loaded question, I know. There's a lot that goes into this decision, and sometimes not knowing right now is okay too. Colby always knew he wanted to have kids, Tessa and Martha are pretty firmly in the "no" camp. There is no wrong answer, just you know, societal pressure arond doing the right thing.


    Next month, we'll take a different perspective and hear from someone who DOES have kids and would like more. In the mean time, you can find us over at The Four Nations Report (www.fournationsreport.com)

    2020 IN REVIEW: with friend of the pod Melissa Sloter!

    Damn, what a year.

    From the rise of the phrase "new normal" and exponential purchases of Pelotons, 2020 really did have it all. Listen as we break down 2020 through the different trends and reflect on how the year REALLY went.

Kwidener ,

Love it!

The back and forth between Martha and Colby is so fun as is, but I love how they interact with their guests in such a fun, entertaining way. Also, I’ve learned a few things myself along the way!!

MomOfEighteen ,

LOVE THIS!

Martha has a straightforward way of telling it like it is, showing you the way and making no excuses!

ColleenBri ,

Five stars!

Having just met you at live headfirst’s create your own happy hour event, I was excited to listen to your podcast and you did not disappoint!

I had never heard of Eva Payne and was really impressed with her focus and content. I love the FLOW idea, 51% joy, being intuitive while serving others.

You did a great job of asking questions that promoted good discussion, real life examples and relevance to your target audience.

I subscribed and wish you continued success! Rock on, Martha!
