Jamie Grumet: TIME Cover Breastfeeding & Attachment Parenting



E135 – We have a wonderful conversation with Jamie Grumet, known for her controversial breastfeeding cover on TIME magazine, now at its 10-year anniversary. With a background in anthropology & theology, she is the author of Modern Attachment Parenting: The Comprehensive Guide to Raising a Secure Child, its introduction by Dr. Sears & foreword by Alanis Morissette. Jamie shares her insights on parenting using these methods while educating us about other cultures, adoption, breastfeeding & children self-weaning at older ages. We find out what she went through going viral in such a contentious way at a young age, and discuss the psychology of what this represents; mothers judging mothers, puritanical ideals & sexual repression. Does she regret the photo session? And we talk about what we can do to educate future generations. Our own adult attachment styles are analyzed too (secure, anxious, avoidant, etc), as we wonder how we were raised. Spoiler alert: we know a lot about each others’ childhoods. Our parents were best friends in high school, so Jamie is like our honorary little sister! We hope you enjoy this interesting discussion & support Jamie’s wonderfully inclusive & accepting book, currently sold on Amazon!

I’m Not a Lesbian But My Girlfriend Is! PRIDE with Stephanie and Michele



E133 – Imagine realizing deep into your marriage, your typical husband-wife marriage with kids, that you are seeking a deeper connection. Imagine making that connection with someone who happens to be your same sex. Imagine falling in love. What would you do? How would you handle your feelings and the decisions you make? What’s next? Hear the story of Stephanie Smith and Michele Baker, later in life loves (so many L-words!), and how they are managing their new path together, their families, and their thoughts on pride. They tell their Glennon Doyle and Abby Wombach meetup story, the one in which Joelle mixes up her lesbians! And not only do they answer our questions about religion and community, but graciously our questions about the physicality of it all. We even dish on our own experiences! They offer advice to those in a similar situation and paint a picture of what life can be like outside the closet. Thank you to our wonderful guests for sharing their brave stories. This is a heartfelt and fun talk that we hope you’ll hear and pass along. Love is love, and the world needs a lot more love and understanding right now!

Michele can be reached via her wonderful public relations and communications company https://www.MamboComm.com, where authenticity and core values are key to strategy. And Stephanie can be found via Joelle because they’ve been friends forever!

Matty from Nooks and Crannies on UFOs, ESP, Botanicals, Bonobo Sex, Orgasm Boxes, Indigenous Groups, Racial Classification, Brains & CTE



E116 – Hope your brain sponge is ready to soak up some fascinating knowledge! Matty, easily the smartest Nooks and Crannies podcaster besides co-host Evan, serves us up a verbal pu pu platter of stories and information as to why humans do the things and think the way we do. He has thoughts on ancient alien theory, having under his belt 17 years of college, multiple degrees in many social sciences, a touch of ESP, and two personal UFO sightings! Yes, he gives details on his spacecraft viewings, down to the unfortunate interruption. He explains his beliefs about horoscopes, Newtonian physics, and ancient people’s understanding of the cosmos. We ask about indigenous cultures in Canada and the US, talk history books and racial classification, and learn about puberty rituals and practices. We find out feelings on hemp, ayahuasca, and iboga as we chat about psychedelics and cultures. There is lots of laughter as we hear about primate sexuality amongst nonbinary, self-loving, sword-fighting bonobos. And we learn why there were a bunch of sad non-orgasmic naked people sitting on crystal boxes in the 50’s! Hear the conversation on why people, anthropologically speaking, fantasize about partners or have obsessive sexual behaviors. This leads to neurotransmitter and neurology talk, and we find out about Matty’s many concussions and CTE, and talk disability policies and thoughts on healthcare. It was a wonderful discussion and we loved learning a little bit about his family too. Hope you enjoy this insightful, funny dialog with our friend too and let us know what you think!

He explains his near death experience in detail, and tells how this new knowledge influenced how he helped others with AIDS.

I Called My Ex and Have a Story



E108 – Joelle fights fashion but wonders if she’s missing the shopping gene. Julianne reports on our NYC Screenwriting Challenge and explains her method for writing scripts. It’s been a fun collective effort with us, Derek and Keith of Pop Up Film Cast, and Phil Rood of The Picture Show with Austin and Phil Rood. There is some scolding about being late, a story about compost, and the time Juls met Mouse’s crush Chris Martin, the Coldplay front man. Then the main course: we hear interviews with three of Weens’ ex boyfriends! Now all good friends, Dave, Matt, and Blake tell their funny quintessential Julianne stories including Mexican pet stores, wild horses in elusive Idaho, Valentine’s Day mind-reading, apartment sax, and film school projects including frogs and nudity. It’s a fun one and we give big thanks to these guys and their SO’s! ~Please be sure to spread the word and share this episode with your friends. It’s the best way to help us grow! Thanks!~

Anatomy Lesson



E106 – Bras! One of the most important tools in every woman’s wardrobe is the brassiere to hold up the girls! We discuss what type we like, common problems, the cost of bras, and what it’s like being fitted in person versus online.  Lingerie talk gets wacky, Weens gets sultry-nervous, and stressed by this after back-to-back family birthdays, Joelle gets her panties in a bunch. So we take a breath with Sesame Street and work our way into a quick chat about the Elmo Netflix documentary. More Mouse knicker twisting, then the elephant in the room: why did our parents use the cutesy names “dinky” and “twinkie” instead of the anatomically correct “penis” and “vagina?” Luckily, our mom is visiting San Diego so we pull her onto the mic and quiz her about the family history of naming privates. We also keep her in the hot seat asking why she got remarried on our dad’s birthday, and find out her fun nuggets about horses, cowboys, Robert Redford, her reggae phase, cbd, drinking, and the story behind the broken ankle. Was it a case of our dad having a walk-it-off football mentality or was he being negligent? We hope you like this one as we air some of our family’s intimates. So many questions answered, so many laughs!
