One Bad Mother Episode 63: Postpartum Depression, with guest Katherine Stone of PostpartumProgress.com

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Katherine Stone

Biz and Theresa fall back on “making jokes” as our defense mechanism while we tackle the topic of Postpartum Depression, the way the media portrays it, and our own experiences with the ups, downs and way-downs of post-baby life. We then speak with Katherine Stone, founder of Postpartum Progress, who helps us understand postpartum depression and other mental illnesses related to pregnancy and childbirth, including postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, depression during pregnancy, and more.

TS144: Wheel of Fortune, The Pope, Sen. Mike Lee, The Atlantic, Guest Sharon Van Etten

Show: 
Throwing Shade

What are you doing this summer? Well, if you’re like Bryan, you’re totally ignoring Erin’s suggestion of going to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor aka the world’s most exciting cesspool. Also, the Pope says dumb stuff about women in the church. And Pat Sajak meets a gay person for the first time on Wheel of Fortune. Plus, the amaaaaaazing singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten sits down with us to talk harmonies, Working Girl and the toddler from The Passion of the Christ.
