Fun & Educational - the best of both worlds!

Laura and Jess are super fun hosts and they have so many interesting guests. I love the variety of topics they cover - there's something for everyone here!

Thankful

So incredibly thankful for this podcast and these ladies. I look forward to hearing them every week and I love the space they have created. This year has been so challenging and they been brave enough to openly share their journey and struggles. Although there have recently been a couple of negative reviews, I applaud Jess and Laura for showing up and continuing to be authentic. They are allowing us to have a glimpse of their lives even while they are still figuring things out and are willing to share the “messy” parts- which is not something many people are willing to do. I love their catch up episodes the most, and am excited to hear more topic focused episodes. These might not resonate with everyone, but as a long time listener who has gotten to know these two women and their motherhood journeys, I loved hearing their school decisions and look forward to more nuanced, non-judgmental discussion!

Love, love, love.

I have learned so much from this podcast! The topics Jess and Laura cover are wide-ranging, informative, and most of the time I walk away gaining perspective on something I didn’t even know I needed. The catch-up episodes are great as I often feel so seen when Jess and Laura break down their realities around motherhood, life, relationships, pandemics — all of it! What you will find here is real, raw storytelling from genuine, non-judgmental women. Thank you for creating this community!
