Three childfree women in three different countries challenge society’s expectations of women as mothers with no-holds-barred conversations and interviews. Hosted by Isabel (Colombia), Kristen (US) and LeNora (Canada).
Are You a Breeder-Pleaser?
Some childfree people regularly use *colorful* language to refer to parents and children. These words and terms are usually offensive and degrading. Some of the same childfree people will call other childfree people a ”breeder-pleaser” if the latter don’t agree with the use of that type of language. Which one are you?
Hey Mom - I’m Childfree!
Telling people that you have made the life-affirming decision to not ever raise children can be daunting, especially if the people you’re going to tell are your own parents. In this episode, we discuss ”coming out” as childfree and we offer some words of wisdom to our listeners who are yet to tell their loved ones.

”You’d be Such a Great Mom!” and Other Topics

Anything on Your Childfree Mind?
No, seriously. Is there anything you would like to share with us? Any idea you need to bounce off a childfree soundboard? Looking for input or advice? Well, look no further!
The Challenge of Childfree Friendships
We think it’s safe to say that many childfree people have ”lost” at least one friend after they had kids. It’s very common, and it sucks. One of our listeners sent us an email asking us how we deal with these situations and if we had some tips on how to make more childfree friends. If you’re interested in knowing our answers to these questions, this episode is for you.
I rarely find podcasts that I truly relate to. I absolutely love this podcast! It gives me a place to hear from people who believe the same as I do, and have chosen to be childfree like myself. 💜

Not recommended for sexual abuse survivors
I wanted to love this podcast but was rather horrified by their Facebook issues. They posted something about their issues that they don’t like trigger warnings. Okay then, let’s debate. But then someone commented with some really seriously victim blaming and victim mocking stuff including calling it “juvenile thinking.” When that was countered as victim blaming, they deleted the counter comments but not the original insulting post from the person who later devolved in the comments to more aggressive victim insults. I get moderating your page for arguments but then be fair. And be careful whose side you take when there were over 500 victims of Larry Nassar alone, and some of them were suicidal.
