Call Your Mom

Call Your Mom

2019-05-1400:37:21

When you see "Mom" in your missed calls, do you start to sweat? Does a voicemail that starts "Hi, sweetie, it's me, so sorry to bother you..." make you twitch? You're not alone. Whether you have a great relationship with your mom or a predominantly shouting-based one, calls between moms and their kids are complicated. And on this episode, we hear from friends, colleagues, and listeners about how they navigate their mom calls.And, we want to hear from you! We are planning an episode about being horny. We’re interested in are the unexpected triggers: you know, the things that you personally are horny for that no one else gets. Whether that’s exposed ankles, pinkie rings, or bike messengers with their little hats, leave us a message at (920) 368-3341, and tell us what’s got you horned up in spring 2019. 
Cynthia Rowley is a fashion designer, author, and successful businesswoman, despite not having a background in business. Stella Bugbee talks with Cynthia about balancing work and life, hustling Andy Warhol at the start of her career, taking risks in fashion and business, and much more.
This week, we listen in on a conversation between Dr. Alexandra Sacks, host of the new podcast Motherhood Sessions, and Anne. Anne never wanted to be a mom. For years, her family, friends, and husband all told her, "When the baby comes, you'll change your mind" — but the change never came. Anne's now the mother of a toddler, and she's still struggling with lingering doubts about motherhood. You can listen to more episodes of Motherhood Sessions, on Spotify, or wherever you listen. 
Topeka Sam and Holly Harris are two women on opposite sides of the political spectrum who’ve worked together to pass criminal justice reform. They both played a part in passing the First Step Act, which reduced mandatory minimums, made it easier for families to visit loved ones, and allowed people who’ve been incarcerated to leave jail early for good behavior. Stella, Topeka and Holly discussed how to get it done across the aisle, when it’s time to put family first, and more. 
Nicole Cliffe and Daniel Mallory Ortberg met in the Hairpin comments section and quickly became long-distance friendship soulmates--they went on to start the website The Toast together. This week, they tell us about everything that's happened since they first bonded over Rebecca, answering questions like: How does a friendship change when one of you transitions? What about when one of you finds God? And who the fuck is Loretta? 
Tamara Mellon is a fashion designer, businesswoman, and magazine editor. She founded the luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo in the 90s, and she walked away the company back in 2011. We talked with Tamara about starting her professional life over again in her forties, her path to sobriety, how she's come to peace with fractious family relationships, and much more. 
Selling Out

Selling Out

2019-04-2300:43:57

Author Curtis Sittenfeld talks about what it means to sell out -- from short stories on Chipotle cups to brand-written tweets. And she reads her short story "Creative Differences," about the making of a viral ad campaign.
Yasmeen Hassan is the Global Executive Director for Equality Now, an international non-profit that has successfully pushed governments around the world to pass laws protecting women from sexual exploitation and harmful cultural practices like genital mutilation. Stella and Yasmeen discussed how to get it done as a single mom, the importance of face to face communication, and growing up in Pakistan.
Marriage: Why do we bother? Our theory is that it all comes down to a good story--so this week, we've got two couples with really good stories. First, she's Deaf and he's hearing. Second, a couple who met while he was serving 25 years in prison.And... we want to hear from you! We're working on an episode about calling our moms -- because, at any given time, there's a decent chance we should probably call our moms. But what's the thing you really need to call you mom about, the call you've been putting off? Is there a confession you've been too afraid to make? A question you've always wanted to ask? Or an apology that's long overdue? Psych yourself up by giving us a call and telling us about it. And, if you want us to help you out with your mom call, leave your name and number and we'll see what we can do. Our number is 413-247-4698.

Torcherous to listen to does the moderater have the educational background to talk this mother ? Her questions and comments Are so accusatory to this woman it was obvious she was trying to make a miraculous recovery for this woman who just got more guarded and emotional and full of regret for the way she feels as the interview went on. she was relentless with this is how you should feel and do with bad advice. Just interview her not try to fix her you have no idea how obnoxious and superior you come off

Absolutely fantastic episode thank you so much for speaking your truths. As a white woman I vow to never stop listening, advocating and being grateful for how difficult and painful those conversations are for women of colour to have. Thank you

Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

Shannon Candido Just don't start feeling guilty for being white. That is a slippery slope. Cheers from Belgium.
