E62 – Mouse recaps her girls’ trip wine tasting in Mexico with friends but feels guilty being gone three weekends in a row. Meet Joelle’s friends and find out if her husband is really okay with all this time away or resentful? Are the kids feeling abandoned thinking mom is selfish? How do you take female friends from acquaintances to besties and how do you keep those friendships going over the years? We go over reasons why we need our mom’s nights out and the science behind having girlfriends. We will post study references in our Show Notes. Hear the statistics on how much moms really work and how much free time they have to themselves. No wonder we need our time away! Then we read a controversial article about why some mothers don’t want girl time. Is it healthier to focus more on your husband or is it codependency? Joelle feels judged by this “blessed” woman who shoulds her, but maybe it’s insecurity and she needs to hear it? Weens does a great job giving advice as a non-mom and talks kids’ independence, giving up some control, and raises the future question of how much you should talk dirty in front of your kids. This is a good one for all of us striving to get balance with parenting anxiety. Please take a listen and rate/review on Apple Podcasts to let us know what you think! Thank you!
E61 – Come play! We break down our weekend in downtown LA at the historic Ace Hotel’s Werk It women’s podcasting conference. Hear our lecture takeaways and highlights scootering in skirts, meeting famous podcaster Georgia Hardstark of My Favorite Murder, and hanging with Dessa, well-known rapper, author, and TED Talk lecturer at the closing party. She went deep with us into the neuroscience behind love and we talk a little bit about both of our relationship obsessions. Then we come back to Julianne’s cottage and have a jam session with Dan Mahony, playing the game Stump Dan the Guitar Man. He is so good! See if he gets stumped by Lizzo, Afroman, Coldplay, or Queens of the Stone Age, and watch the rest of the performance on our Facebook Live video in our FB Group. We take a turn into the behind the scenes of tv and film as Weens talks about her dream of working in stunts. What is her connection with the Sega Fighting Vipers commercial and main character design? Should she take a stunt driving course? What did she do in The Rookie’s Season 2 trailer? Hear her interview with Special Effects coordinator Bob Calvert and one of his craziest memories working with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny on The X-Files. And find out where on the risk-taking scale Mouse is these days.
