My favorite parenting podcast
I love this show. It's smart and funny and there's a sense that they are looking for real insight rather than easy or glib answers. Can't wait for more episodes
Hilarious and Thoughtful
I love how honest this podcast is. It's thoughtful without being overly earnest, and it's funny too.
Looking forward to more!
I really like the conversational tone and realness -- I found myself nodding along as Callie and Denise talked. I also liked the combination of their sense of humor and irreverence (quite necessary as a parent!) to be refreshing. I've subscribed and am looking forward to more!
