One Bad Mother, Episode 296: Scheduling Nightmares! Plus, Parenting Norms Throughout History with Jennifer Traig

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Jennifer Traig

Biz and Theresa discuss family scheduling. Once all of the basics are set, like school/daycare drop offs and pick ups, work, doctor appointments and groceries, adding extra activities like classes and play dates is enough to make us want to go out for milk and never come home. Whether our kids thrive on doing many activities or we subscribe to “not over-scheduling kids,” a lot of brain space is taken up just by getting everyone where they need to be. Don’t forget to schedule time to do the scheduling! Plus, Biz is quarantined, Theresa is left to pick up all the pieces and we talk to Jennifer Traig about the absurdity of parenting norms, and her book Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting.

Jennifer Traig’s book, Act Natural: A Cultural History of Misadventures in Parenting is out now.

Samantha Nzessi

It's about to get real emotional and philosophical up in here as these two water signs jump into it. In the guest cohost spot from the MASkulinity Podcast we have Samantha Nzessi. Remember that governor who you thought was racist well it turns out his wife just might have him beat with her own flavor of racism. We discuss what is truth these days, do we care about facts- which leads us into a conversation about Jussie Smulllet- what the fuck happened!? Finding Neverland documentary, yikes, is this the end to Michael Jackson? We canceled R. Kelly after the 'Surviving R. Kelly' doc, are we willing to do the same to the King of Pop? First Black Oscar winner Hattie McDonald was a controversial figure in her time and still to this day. James dives into the history of this controversial figure, her history, and who she really was. You think you know... but you don't know! Is Steve Harvey yucking Monique's yum. Samantha takes us on a tour in a conversation around her podcasts main premise of masculinity. What is masculinity in our culture? What does it mean to be a man? How did we get to Trump? Where do we go with dealing with the culture of masculinity? Plus James saw Green Book- and he has notes- Samantha did not see it- and still has notes... just who was this fantasy reconstructing of racism for?

Moujan Zolfaghari (Mission to Zyxx) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the cats, Pancake and Zen, who she is cat-sitting for at the moment and their complex family situation, the new genre of fanfiction where you just write stories where you are friends with the people in pop culture you want to hang out with, and the improv or sketch show that everyone saw that opened their mind to the idea that comedy can be elevated or artful or cool. Plus, we reveal how many people in our audience are named Bronson!
