Mostly really good!
I just found this podcast last month, and have been listening to it on my daily commute. As a new working mom, length is perfect for my commute and I think they have quality guests on the show and relevant topics. I wish the host was more well spoken and organized in her comments and in guiding the conversations to get the most of the topics from the whole group. I like the guest Krista who seemed to be on often. Seems like this is no longer in recording. Too bad! I would probably be a regular listener.
Not for me!
So I wanted to listen to something on morning walks that would prepare me for motherhood. This isn’t the podcast for me. These women are clearly upper class with unlimited funds. They just aren’t realistic. It’s not terrible, they have some good advice. But currently I’m listening to the “toys” podcast and one mom thinks all plastic is bad. I’m sorry we don’t all have the money for all wooden toys. I’m hoping to find something better with more realistic advice and less mom shaming.
This is a joke
