    Season 3 Debrief w/Caitlin & Katie

    Extra long, extra juicy, extra momtastic: Caitlin & Katie (both moms of two, if ya didn’t catch that) debrief the issues explored in Season 3 with our expert guest hosts, Paula & Nina. From the attitudes and practices surrounding vaccines, infant feeding, and moms and work, to the attitudes and practices (read: policies) that our country imposes on moms at large, C& K ponder how the state of the “Mom Tribe” might point to some larger issues facing America today.

    S3E4 Part II: Workin' It

    Expert guest hosts Paula & Nina shine with compassion and wit as they take on their last episode here at the Multiverse. They respond frankly to Randi Zuckerberg’s interview about (not) having it all (at once), and share their own experiences of being a stay-at-home and/or working mom. They also field three stories from our listening audience about motherhood and work, shining a little light – and lightheartedness – on what looks like an all around impossible situation for moms out there today.

    S3E4 Part I: Workin' It

    In a world where women are expected to parent like they don’t have a job and work as if they don’t have children, how exactly do we “have it all”? Bestselling author, new mom (again), and media mogul, Randi Zuckerberg, tells us why it’s better to be well lopsided than perfectly balanced. In her book, Pick Three, she lays out how focusing on 3 of the 5 areas women aspire to rule can be the ticket to real world success. Katie and Paula find out exactly what that looks like for her, and what specific advice she has for moms stuck in the hampster wheel of early parenthood.

    S3E2: Got Milk?

    S3E2: Got Milk?

    In this episode, Paula and Nina explore the dicey choice moms have to make regarding how they feed their newborns and why you should care. First, author Emily Oster breaks down how data-based parenting looks in the real world, the mixed messages moms get about feeding their infants, and how we’re probably not failing our children regardless of what choice we make. Then blogger and formula feeding activist Suzanne Barston illustrates how sometimes the decision between breastfeeding or bottle feeding isn’t really a choice...and the judgement moms receive, nonetheless.

Informative and thoughtful

Great new information and thoughtful commentary abound in this new to me podcast! Love the hard subjects that come with new and considerate commentary.

Entertaining & Thought Provoking

Both seasons so far really highlight the multifaceted of a topic and leave me questioning where I really stand on things. It’s not as black and white and I’m clearly not as educated on certain topics as I thought. Thanks for this!

Not just a far sided conversation

This podcast is a really great candid investigation of how we can grow as a country and come together to understand people from all sides of the conversation. Really worth while.
