Refreshing tone for 2019

Just binged all available episodes and can’t wait for more! Example of the kind of talk here that I don’t hear elsewhere (paraphrasing), “I was more concerned about the damage it would cause my child if I was depressed about not going down water slides than about any about damage going down the water slide would do to my unborn baby.” Or, a punk rabbi mom whose mission is to give people hope and strength so they can fight political battles? More real talk for 2019!

Can’t wait for the next one!

I really enjoy hearing from a variety of women who are following their passions. Definitely inspiring for me when I think about my future and how I want the career of my dreams and to be a mom.

Not your typical “work-life balance” talk

I'm really enjoying this new podcast, The Double Shift by Katherine Goldstein, and the third episode in particular. Katherine isn't doing the usual stuff on "trying to find balance" - in the 3rd episode, for example, she follows a young mother of 3 who was already a superstar in her education career, and then chose to run as a candidate in the most recent election. Katherine's interview helps us glean great insight into both current-day work-family dilemmas and decisions, what it means to take risks these days and how women are managing these important career risks to match their interests and values.
