announcing my new podcast!

I’ve been blogging a lot less over the last year. (Perhaps you’ve noticed). Fewer people are reading blog posts these days; sometimes it feels like no one is listening.

This isn’t to say I’m closing up shop.  I have loved blogging– it has brought me so much, personally and professionally. I also think we all may be returning to more direct and personal forms of communication. If 2016 has taught us anything about social media, it’s that its designs and algorithms ENSURE that no one listens to anyone who’s not already in direct agreement with them.

But on to my exciting news: I’ve launched a parenting podcast!


What Fresh Hell: Laughing in the Face of Motherhood is now live. You can listen on our website, on iTunes, or by searching “What Fresh Hell Podcast” in your favorite podcast app.

In each episode, fellow mom/blogger/comedian Margaret Ables and I take on a topic one or both of us is struggling with as a parent. How much screen time is too much? Should I keep rescuing my forgetful middle-schooler when he forgets his homework? Will my picky eater ever eat anything besides Uncrustables?

We take that topic, we research it, we gently mock each other’s considerable parental shortcomings, and we FIGURE IT OUT. We like to say that we’re solving today’s parenting problems so you don’t have to.

I’ll be back to writing in this space; I still have a lot to say. But I hope you’ll come join the conversation at, like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, and most importantly- give us a listen!
