Nyssa's Mia Clarke speaks to professors and researchers Bethany Johnson and Margaret Quinlan, authors of the You’re Doing It Wrong: Mothering, Media and Medical Expertise. Their book offers a deep-dive into the storied history of mothering advice in media— from the newspapers, magazines, doctors’ records and personal papers of the 19th century to today’s websites, Facebook groups and Instagram feeds.

We talk about gatekeepers of information in the age of social media, the dynamics between lay and technical expertise in the digital space, and how to handle those ubiquitous 3am Facebook group posts about random rashes :)

Bethany and Margaret are Kindly offering listeners of The Unmentionables a discount off their book using the code 02AAAA17, which works out to be $10 less than the Amazon price. The check-out site is here.
