Hello babies! Hot-diggety-dog, do we have a good episode for you! Emily has an obsession with a Japanese cat game and Lisa got a massage! Lisa also watched a Periscope that involved a bee and a nostril. If you could have any exotic pet (without any of the negatives) what would it be? Comedian Allen Strickland-Williams joins us to learn about pre-mastication and take part in an impromptu Minions point/counterpoint in this week's Wiki of the Week. He's also distracted by a fly before telling us everything he knows about presidential elections and being a page at NBC LA. Expert Parker Kerry gives the straight scoop on frosting and icing, then tells all about his campaign for an elected position on a frosting forum! Enjoy!

Meanwhile Elliott improves various movies by adding a little vitamin C(age), Dan reveals what the H.P. in H.P. Lovecraft stands for, and Stuart almost gets Billy Joel lyrics right.

One Bad Mother Episode 116: Pregnancy Loss with guest Dr. Jessica Zucker

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Dr. Jessica Zucker

Yes, we are a comedy show, but... There is no clever way to say it. This week, Biz and Theresa talk about miscarriages. Theresa shares her experience and together we explore what it's like to go through a pregnancy loss, or have a friend experiencing pregnancy loss, in a culture that doesn't seem to offer much in the way of acknowledgment or support. Clinical psychologist Dr. Jessica Zucker, whose focus is on women's reproductive and maternal mental health, joins us to talk about her own miscarriage and her efforts to make this a less taboo topic with her #IHadAMiscarriage campaign.
