This is real talk about social issues, black and brown lives, black hair, relationships, mommy'ing through those terrible three's (yes I said three's), parenting kids of all ages and all the fun that comes with motherhood... all discussed with a twist of color.

So so good!

I listen to quite a few podcasts, and have never felt strongly enough to leave a review. However, this podcast has become one of my favorites after only listening to a few episodes. Especially in this time, the topics are thoughtful, engaging, and they are addressing ever important topics and subtopics within race, without being utterly draining and disheartening.

Easy to listen to while working or doing other activities, without being shallow, background noise conversations.

Great job ladies

As soon as I started listening to the first episode I thought of my wife and her daily struggles as mom. Thanks for the perspective

Well Done

After listening to the Auntie/Childless Mother episode- I am subscribing. The raw and honest material from both valid perspectives teaches all women, it truly takes a village.
Centering around the purpose and intention of the child, I believe it was instrumental in establishing healthy boundaries while embarking on areas of vulnerability from both.. Thanks for the honest dialogue. I’m looking forward to listening in the future
