One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Haley Jude

Biz and Theresa wonder when, as new parents, do we get back to feeling normal again? And what is normal? Maybe it's the day we stop crying at Target or maybe it's accepting a “new” normal. Also this week, we have another case of baby fever! Plus, we chat with pregnant San Francisco-based film maker Haley Jude, who is a contributor to Elle.com and producer of her own video series, Queer Mama, where she chronicles her journey of lesbian conception and pregnancy.

Jesse Thorn Presents: Make Your Thing

Sunday, July 19, 2015
1:00pm

Annenberg Space for Photography
Skylight Studios
10050 Constellation Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90067

Registration for this event is $10. Get your tickets and more info here!

What do Chris Hardwick, Killer Mike, Andrew WK and the blog Boing Boing have in common? They knew how to make their thing.

Since 2010, Jesse Thorn has been sharing his hour-long talk, Make Your Thing, with sold-out crowds in cities around the country and abroad. Make Your Thing focuses on how he turned his college radio show into an independent media powerhouse, and how 12 other people, many of them his friends and colleagues, exemplify the qualities necessary to make independent artistic and career aspirations a reality in the internet age. It really is possible to merge the commercial world with nonprofit ideals, and Jesse will show you how.
