Biz and Theresa load up our backpacks with unnecessary anxiety! School is great and the teachers are better, so what could be keeping us up at night? Will the teacher be a good fit for our kid? Is this the REAL school supply list? We gotta get kids where? WHEN?! Does it count as bad communication from the school if we don’t read any of it? Should any of this be stressing us out? Theresa rolls with it while Biz lets her sadness for her ever aging children manifest itself into an unhealthy “yes!” Plus Biz has a screamer, Theresa goes to the beach, and we talk to Michael Ian Black about fatherhood, twitter, writing children's books, and Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later (in which he stars), which is streaming now on Netflix, to our endless delight!

Follow Michael on twitter @michaelianblack and don't forget to check out his latest children's book A Child's First Book of Trump and his hilarious new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later!

Biz and Theresa talk about all the little things we hate that we hadn't thought about in years....till our kids did them to us! Pool splashing, sparklers, being surprised...these aren't phobias or life-threatening but they still bug the crap out of us! So, do we ban them or toughen up? What if we just try to explain rationally to a three-year-old that we'd like them to stop? Yep! That will work! Plus, Biz sees herself in Katy Belle and Theresa returns from the woods!

This week on One Bad Mother, we are excited to share our live show from San Francisco (May 2017) where we talk about bad habits. What makes a bad habit and do we have any control over what habits our kids have? Probably not but that won’t stop Biz from trying to keep her child from becoming the class “booger eater.” Glynn Washington of Snap Judgement joins us and serves as the voice of reason and experience with his parenting perspective with older kids. We need it! Plus live genius and fails!

Note: This week corporal punishment is mentioned in the discussion.

You can listen to Glynn's program Snap Judgment on your local NPR affiliate stations or subscribe in your favorite podcatcher.

It’s a very special episode of Pop Rocket. We throw Margaret Wappler a baby shower before she takes an extended leave of absence to become a mother. There were games, tears, laughter, joy and even a guest appearance by One Bad Mother’s Biz Ellis.

The gang talk about their favorite lullabies, share what tv shows affected them the most as a child, and Margaret reveals how she would stage her pregnant photo shoot. Plus, Karen brings in an old school Summer Jam, Guy and Margaret are still gaga for Game of Thrones (no spoilers), and Wynter is in love with Ready Player One.

We all love you and wish you the best, Margaret!

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:

Margaret Wappler - REM - Untitled (Track 11)
Karen Tongson - Flo Rida - My House
Wynter Mitchell - Brandy - Baby
Guy Branum - Demi Lovato - Sorry Not Sorry

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa realize that all that glitters is not gold…it is just glitter and like that shitty tattoo you got from that wild night out that was fun but full of regrets the next morning, it will be with you forever. What makes glitter magical and why, despite knowing its dark side, do we keep letting it back into our house? Maybe, like all awful things, we can turn it into a reminder that we are getting really good at this. Plus, Biz brings Katy Belle to work and Theresa get summer schooled.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 230: It May or May Not Take a Village

| 5 comments

As promised to donors during our annual pledge drive earlier this year, we present our "Switcheroo" week episode! Hosts Biz Ellis and Theresa Thorn of the One Bad Mother podcast jump in to adjudicate a parenting-related dispute this week. You'll find Judge Hodgman guest hosting this week's RISK! podcast.

All will return to normal next week but in the meantime, enjoy!

Judge Biz Ellis presides with Bailiff Theresa Thorn: should a couple with a baby seek out other young parents? Or are their old (non-parent) friends sufficient?

Michelle Hefflin named this week's case via the Judge John Hodgman Facebook page. Thanks, Michelle!

If you want to be part of a nicer place on the internet, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @Hodgman, Bailiff Jesse @JesseThorn.

Action Item: What's a good general beginners thing Jordan can request that won't scare somebody off, but will get the most out of his Extreme Restraints offer?

I am not a magical vessel A.K.A. my child is great but I am not doing so well. The official prequel to Episode 1! This show gives you some insight into Biz and Theresa and how this show came about. We discuss how we handled the first year of having a baby, from feeling isolated to feeling uncool to using the baby to ignore all our other problems.
