You're invited to pull up a chair and meet your new mom friend. These are the conversations that you overhear in coffee shops and restaurants and unapologetically eavesdrop on. Real moms talking about their experiences as moms. Ready to listen in?
Ask Me Anything LIVE
For the Season One Finale I threw open the doors and asked my Patreon community to interview me. They had some amazing questions.
We talked about:
- how I define moms and motherhood
- why I do this work
- advice for introverted parents of extroverted kiddos
- advice for the white moms of mixed race kiddos
Your Mom Friend will be back this fall when the school bells ring! Until then please leave me a review on iTunes, share the podcast with your friends, and take good care mama!
Every single time Dara writes even so much as a Facebook status, I rush to read it. She is that friend you have who says exactly what you were trying to find the words to say. Dara is a mom of three, a writer, an editor, and she will have a book out soon if I have anything to say about it. She hid in her basement to record this episode with me because mom life is real.
Anuradha is, quite simply, brilliant. She is seriously multi-talented, from biology to dance to history to Human Design - she just knows so much! I think it comes from being deeply curious about our world and about other people. She’s also one of the kindest people that I have ever met. Above all, Anuradha is a teacher and I have been so blessed to learn from her.
Tara Pringle Jefferson
Tara is a self-care coach for women and a mom of two. She’s an entrepreneur and an inspiration to me, personally. Tara was the first person I met who took the idea of women taking care of themselves seriously enough to build an entire business around the concept. I will always be grateful that I met her when I did and for her friendship. There’s no one else I could think of for our Mother’s Day episode.
Dru is the mother of three incredible humans, a career makeup artist, & a co-founding member-owner of the Transformative Teaching Collective — where she facilitates intergroup dialogue around topics of racial and social justice for the purpose of healing.
At the center of her worldview is an urgency of living with audacity, curiosity, compassion and empathy.
This week I’m talking to Saira Rao about politics, race, and change. Saira Rao is a racial justice activist, former congressional candidate, and co-founder of In This Together Media, Race2Dinner and Healing from Hate. Rao's upcoming memoir, BROKEN NEWS, will be published in Spring 2020.
I was introduced to Saira through FB and her page regularly gives me life. She is an unapologetic truth-teller in a world that tells women, especially black and brown mothers, that we must lie to stay safe.
Rewriting script of motherhood
Thank you for helping me rewrite what motherhood means to me! So much freedom in recognizing we cannot and were never meant to do this alone! Keep up the good work
The mom friend we all need
I listen on the morning and laugh, feel encouraged, and enlightened. Easily one of my fav podcasts.
Warm and honest
I enjoy the balance of lightheartedness with real & meaty topics.
It’s a great substitution for the times you can’t be with your bffs; a great tonic when you’re feeling isolated. Graeme’s podcast offers laughs, truth and thought provoking conversations.
