    Mom Talks With Her Carter Brothers

    Mom Talks With Her Carter Brothers

    E138 - Please enjoy this walk down memory lane between siblings, as mom Joyce Carter and her big brothers Randy and Bill Carter reminisce about summers in Texas, growing up on snowy Mount Shasta, and their teen years in the hot desert of Tucson. Family history and whether we have a Native American ancestor is discussed. And grandpa's time in WWII and its aftermath is talked about. Hear who got in trouble for cutting down a cherry tree limb with a hatchet!



    This episode was actually recorded a year+ ago and was so family-centric that we decided to just distribute it between the Carters and kin. But now we have a more pressing reason to put this out in the public - our sweet mom is no longer with us. We hope this sweet conversation will help friends, family, and fans learn more about mom and her family and remember her in the cheerful loving light that she always put out into the world.

    Elon Musk, Viral Bananas, Hammy Mammagrammy

    E137 - We catch up over Christmas break while Joelle's in Idaho & Julianne's in San Diego editing our documentary. Hear about snowy plans, Poway bandits, Red Riders & Home Alone. We made this year's https://www.AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com calendar, talk crappy kids in photos & Mouse finally gives her London recap. See tourist recommendations from a Brit Pod Scene podcast below & hear Number One Rerun's deep thoughts on Harry Potter. We discuss when to scrub social media for work, & then get right into Weens' viral banana video & Hairy Pants song! Speaking of clickable, listen to Julianne's stories about the real personalities of Jack Black, Michael Shannon & Keanu Reeves. Do they have Brad Pitt's face blindness? Do you forget how you know people like Mouse does? We jump into the gutter for a while to discuss monorchidism & the female body part that rhymes with Horace, chorus & taurus. And finally we discuss Elon Musk's comedy career, finding out what politics, the Rachel Maddow Ultra & BagMan podcasts, & cat-sitting have to do with each other. We bring around the episode talking boobs, mammograms, & gallows humor. Then Weens redefines social work, throws out some gross words & ends questioning her solitude and dislike of crowds these days. Who relates? Write in! mouseandweens@gmail.com or DM any socials @mouseandweens https://facebook.com/mouseandweens is a good spot too!

    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!

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!!! đŸ€—

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 :)
