Advice from Mom is a podcast and cross-generational effort to answer life's big questions. Featured as “new and noteworthy” on Apple Podcasts and included on NPR's The Big Listen, Advice from Mom is an advice-column show hosted by Rebecca Garza-Bortman featuring listener letters and the advice and stories of her mother, Elizabeth Skibinski-Bortman, PhD. Affectionately known on the show as “Momma B”, Dr. Bortman is a small-town family therapist “on a one-woman mission to mother a mentally healthy world.” Each episode, this mother-daughter duo explores questions sent in by their listeners with the help of a series of guest experts. They have recorded advice with actress & SNL alum, Michaela Watkins; artist and graphic journalist, Wendy MacNaughton; and NPR's The Kitchen Sisters, as well as crisis counselors, authors, and wise creative professionals of all sorts. This podcast is founded on the belief that we need our mothers like we never have before. Not just our own mothers, but the mothers of the world. Anyone can submit a question at

Just what I needed, when I needed it

Advice from Mom is a thoughtful but fun exploration of feelings and how we can support ourselves in compex situations. With practical advice as a marriage and family therapist, Momma B is speaking froms a place of expertise. The guests are of a really high caliber and the editing serves to enhance the subjects at hand. The post-election advice is on point and timely. Can't wait for the next episdode, even if I have no idea what pickle ball is at all!

The advice podcast we need!

I listen to a lot of advice podcasts and I love how this one balances the perspectives of two generations, plus some cool guest hosts. Very unique format and the ensuing advice is specific to the situation, but theoretical enough that anyone could find something that resonates. Looking forward to more.

Sweet and helpful

This podcast is so fun. I love it. I love both ladies' kind, witty and intelligent personalities. Couldn't recommend more!
