Warning! Our show goes a lot of places this week. Luckily they fall into neat categories! (see our trigger warnings note below)

This week, Biz and Theresa talk about personal space, which is a thing our kids like to act like they've never heard of! Plus, Biz finds something new to love and Theresa prepares to send her youngest off to daycare. And renowned author, childbirth educator, physical therapist, and doula Penny Simkin joins us to discuss actual helpful ways to prepare for a first childbirth experience as well as ways those who have suffered sexual trauma can prepare for childbirth.

Trigger Warnings:
Opening Segment: Safe but some high emotions about childcare decisions
Topic Segment: Mostly safe, but does touch on surviving sexual trauma and how a child who doesn’t respect your space can effect you
Interview: Two warnings. 1. It does talk in detail about preparing for child birth while being a victim of sexual trauma. 2. Additional risk of questioning your birth choices if one is sensitive to that.
Rant: Normally fine, but after the previous segments, it might be a tough one!
Wrap up: Biz and Theresa try very hard to bring it all together!

Penny Simkin's books are on Amazon, including The Birth Partner, The Labor Progress Handbook, When Survivors Give Birth, and more.

Jemaine Clement on Fighting, Flight of the Conchords, and Comic Drama in People Places Things

Jemaine Clement’s upbringing in a small community in New Zealand could have led him to career making cookies or cheese. Instead he found a way to transform his sense of humor into a career making other stuff -- things like music and comedy.

Along with his partner, Bret McKenzie, he is a member of musical comedy duo, Flight of the Conchords which aired as a television show for two seasons on HBO. Clement has also written and produced with McKenzie and other longtime collaborators on movies like What We Do in the Shadows.

He stars in the new movie People Places Things, about a graphic novelist and professor who's grappling with loneliness and fatherhood in the wake of a breakup. The film is in theaters and available on VOD.

Clement join us to talk about working in the comic drama People Places Things, his early comedic influences back in New Zealand, the challenges he faced producing a television show, and how the word “grommet” resulted in his last physical altercation.

Biz and Theresa want more! More! More! More! More stuff, more babies, more pets, more emotional gratification and in no way is it the same as our kids wanting more. Or, alright fine, maybe it's exactly the same. So we explore the why and the what can be done in hopes of fostering an appreciation for moderation in our kids. Plus, Biz goes to first grade, Theresa actually has a great vacation with her family, and we talk to author and storyteller Matthew Dicks about his new novel, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs.

We'll be the first ones to admit that the title of this episode is pretty unpleasing to the senses. But you need to listen to it, because it's also our most franchisable episode to date, and you don't want to get left behind.

Suggested talking points: Fiddler on the Ground, Three Badges Deep, Foot Kiss, Pretend Better, Multiverse Spoilers
