One Bad Mother Episode 75: Finding The Time To Talk, plus guest Shaun Wiley

| 0 comments
Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Shaun Wiley

Biz and Theresa wonder how we find time to discuss family business with our partners, or -- shock of all shocks -- simply talk and connect with our partners?! How is it possible two people can live in the same house and not find time to talk? Oh, that’s right. We have kids. Plus, Biz gets comfortable with being a “plain old mom” and Theresa takes a chance and talks with the parents of Simon's playground "bully." And, we talk about why so few men take paternity leave in America with our guest Shaun Wiley, Professor of Social Psychology at The College of New Jersey.

A link to Shaun's study will be added whenever it becomes available:
The Daddy Dilemma: Femininity and Poor Worker Stigmas Lower Men’s Intentions to take Paternity Leave in the US, by Joseph Firnhaber, Jason J. Dahling, Shaun Wiley, and Julie Hughes

Upcoming listener meet-ups!

PHILLY: October 11th at 11:30AM at Smith Memorial Playground.

AUSTIN: Potluck on Saturday, October 18 at 11 am @ Little Stacy Park. The meet-up organizer will have a star-shaped balloon so people can spot the group.

TS154:Vagina Massage, Lesbian Jobs, Female Statues, Communes

| 0 comments
Show: 
Throwing Shade
Have you ever had an earth witch on a commune stand across from you and massage herself from her legs to her vagina to her chest without breaking eye contact? Then you and Erin have a ton in common this week. Also, a lesbian teacher was fired from her school for getting pregnant and did you know that women only make up less than 10 percent of all statues in the U.S.? Sad but true but dumb.

City: 
Yonkers, NY
Venue Name: 
Alamo Drafthouse

Lindsay Lohan plays to her strengths as a set of twins – one a bored stripper who never takes off her clothes but whose limbs fall off for no reason, the other a high school student who is kidnapped by Tobias Fünke at a Blue Man Group audition – in I Know Who Killed Me, an overwrought thriller based on a bad meal Brian De Palma once ate.

Featuring a slideshow presentation by I Love Bad Movies and running commentary by The Flop House, plus a special guest for Flop House fans.
