One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Sally Hepworth

We call bullshit on the "to do list" when none of the ten thousand things we do as a parent everyday counts as a thing we can cross off. Plus, Biz comes to the realization that any problems her kids have may not actually be her fault, Theresa plays mind games with Simon, a listener fails when she realizes the "cock" her son wants to know about isn’t a rooster, and we talk to Sally Hepworth about her debut novel, The Secrets of Midwives.

Oh, come in buddies! You've stumbled upon one of our "social bunkers"! We've got bunkers all over this great land! In this episode, we discuss which city/area would be the best general locations to head to during the apocalypse! Rural or urban? East coast? West coast? Maybe a fancy resort location?

Then, in part 2, we discuss everyday carry items! What items do Travis and Andie have on them on a day-to day basis? What items should YOU carry? What can you carry and not look like a weirdo? Do you own a tasteful satchel? All this and more!
