There is one thing we can agree on, all moms are busy. Whether you are a stay at home mom or a working mom, diapers need to be changed, kids need to be fed and laundry needs to be done. When we get caught up in the chaos we may often feel alone.

I’ve learned that listening to podcasts are a way to stay connected in today’s modern motherhood world. We hear adult voices and learn things all while we continue being a mom.

They are great to listen to on your commute or while you’re washing dishes while the kids nap.

No topic is off-limits, and Doree and Kate get into it with humor, honesty, and authenticity.”
