One Bad Mother Episode 70: Mom in the Mirror, with guest Deborah Feingold

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Deborah Feingold

Biz and Theresa try to figure out how our childhood memories and images of moms fit -- or don't -- with how we see ourselves now that we're moms. There's a good chance we're over-thinking it. Plus, Biz discovers that the kindergarten playground may be one step away from a prison yard and Theresa makes parenting look easy. We speak with Deborah Feingold who has photographed everyone from Bono to Clinton, about her new book Music, a collection of her most iconic images, and she lays some serious mom-insight bombs on us that may be the answers to all our over-thinking.

Plus, we're talking about the white Beyonce herself: Michelle Duggar. She and her bangs are sending out robocalls that are incredibly misinformed and offensive. Thankfully, the amazing Tanlines are here to talk Nashville and the Ying Yang Twins!
