The (L)Edge of 30
This is an emergency recording session!!! The girls are months away from turning 30 and their (simultaneous) meltdowns have ensued. Jennie and Allie talk regrets, laughs, life lessons, and everything they're feeling coming up on this new leg of adulthood! We deep dive on a DM that really affected Jennie, and remind ourselves that we control our own narratives and the content we consume. Anyway, It's time to bring back Juicy Suits, tube tops and poppin' lip gloss, ladies. Moms of all ages deserve to feel fun and flirty and full of life! Happy listening, friends.

Trust, Compassion and Boundaries with Paulina Pinsky
This week on The Village Podcast with Jennie and Allie, the girls welcome a special guest: Paulina Pinsky! Paulina is a badass writer, teacher, feminist and person, who's life experiences and new book offer great conversations for parents to open up to their children. The book, written with her Dad, Dr. Drew (yes, THAT Dr. Drew!) titled "It Doesn't Have to Be Awkward: Dealing with Relationships, Consent, and other Hard-to-Talk-About Stuff" is a fabulous teaching tool for families on the topics listed in the title. The girls chat about how Paulina wasn't introduced to the idea of consent until she went to college and how that was too late. Jennie relates to that, and how consent and boundaries were not taught which resulted in two children by the age of 21. Allie talks about navigating boundaries with her toddlers and hugging family members and kids making decisions on their own. This episode covers intense topics of mother-daughter relationships, how the media portrays and twists our words, and how having trust, compassion and boundaries with ourselves at a young age is step one. You do not want to miss this episode!

This episode of TVPJA is just the girls! Jennie and Allie meet up on Zoom in the middle of some busy Halloween planning to catch up. Does anyone else feel like Halloween (and holidays in general) are being amped up this year?! Between a thousand trunk-or-treats and the pressure of performing, it seems more than usual. The girls touch on societal norms, the abnormalities in the modern mothers work schedules and expectations, and what roles are considered valuable.

Pretty in Pink with special guest, Dr. Kathy Royal, Ed.D
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this year it's a cause that hits closer to home for Jennie's family, than ever before. This week the girls sit down with Jennie's mother, Dr. Kathy Royal, Ed.D.: Mom, Grandmother, Gifted Education Teacher, and recent Breast Cancer Survivor.
Once hesitant to even share her cancer diagnosis with close friends and family, Kathy is now on a mission to share her story, and encourage women of every age to stay up to date on routine medical care. Breast Cancer effects 1 in 8 women, so yearly mammograms are CRUCIAL for early detection. Often we put off regular healthcare visits because we are "too busy" or "feel fine". When in reality, when we don't take care of ourselves, or let things go for too long, we put ourselves and our families at risk. Talk to your doctor about your family history, and remind the women you know who are of age, to schedule their yearly mammograms! Please visit The American Cancer Society Website (https://www.cancer.org/) for information and resources.
