Description

Two lesbians chatting about making babies and non-traditional families. Jaimie and Robin humorously go in-depth with weekly guests about their hopes, fears, and setbacks. The mission is to normalize, elevate and celebrate, while confirming that we're just like other parents, trying not to yell at our kids when they still haven't put their shoes on and we're 25 minutes late for school. The end result is a compelling podcast that amusingly explores the age-old question: what's it like to live as an LGBTQ family in a world built for the straights?

Thank you for talking about HELLP Syndrome. My daughter had to be delivered at 24 weeks because I almost died from it. There isn't enough awareness about this.

Imagine a show titled "If These Testicles Could Talk", then imagine what the show would talk about. Now ask yourself, "Am I sexist?"

I loved the first season and couldn't wait for a day alone to listen at work. But the ads just totally killed it. Sorry I'm done listening.
