Mom Rage is a podcast dedicated to expanding the conversation about motherhood.
In each episode, co-hosts Amelia Morris and Edan Lepucki share their experiences and ask the tough questions: What makes a good mother anyway? How has our own upbringing influenced the way we parent? Is Amelia’s mom actually a bad person or does Amelia have some more “journeying” to do on that topic? Bonus: which country singers are getting it right (Brandi Carlile!) and which are sanctifying ‘Mama’ in a really uncomfortable way? Listen as Amelia and Edan engage various guests—authors, healthcare professionals, normal human parents trying their best—in frank, deep, funny, and enlightening conversations about all the joys and $@&! of motherhood.
This is a podcast for your best and worst selves. Let’s rage.
"I believe increasingly that only the willingness to share private and sometimes painful experience can enable women to create a collective description of the world which will be truly ours."
—Adrienne Rich, Of Woman Born
