Two Moms Day Drinking

Two Moms Day Drinking

Are you tired of the Mommy Wars? Why not spend an hour each week stepping back from the carnage as it unfolds on social media to take a deep dive into the story of one of the soldiers instead? Being a mom is hard as hell. Each week, host Stacey Gross gets together with another mom (or a dad, or a grandma, or someone who's chosen not to have kids at all) to talk about how they relate to the enormous concept that is parenting. Whether you have kids or not, tune in every Saturday for a fresh dose of humor, humility, and unvarnished truth about the fact that mommin' ain't easy.... Show More

An extra hour of tape from my interview with Frank Williams, who talks about how deployment may have helped his marriage, and helped him to see what he had at home that he possibly hadn't appreciated before. You can hear the first part of Frank's interview in Episode 11.

So I've been going through old content as well as pre-2020 and early-2020 content, when everything was still relatively normal and I thought I might actually take a shot at monetizing this project. Part of that included bonus content from each episode, which was only available for Patrons at the time. 

Each interview typically lasted 2 hours or a little more. I always aired the first half of the episode and kept the second half ...

Sunny Kirby grew up in the same part of northwestern Pennsylvania as I did, around the same time as I did. We probably knew a lot of the same people. Yet Sunny and I hadn't met in person a day in our lives before sitting down this past Monday to talk about homeschooling. 

Our conversation naturally branched and stretched, always coming back to that home base of a topic, but naturally and organically occurring as we discovered mo...

Gina and I break down Toxic Masculinity through a brief deconstruction of Gaston, Frollo, and Hans from Frozen, while establishing that (a) Tarzan, who was raised by apes, is the most perfect man in history and (b) Gina's love storhy or "How Gina Met Mr. Gina" is the most romantic story of all time and I'm both intensely jealous and in breathless awe. Gina is a real Disney Princess with a real Disney love story.

In part two of her episode, Michelle discusses how rising up - using her voice to speak openly and unabashedly about her past and her struggles - has helped her to sail on. To move forward from those struggles by picking up any useful pieces left behind in the wake of her past and going forward in a constant state of development and growth.

Michelle speaks with unvarnished honesty about her experience of growing up with an abusive father, within a context of chronic stress and fear. And about how that experience played out throughout her family, what that looks like today, and what she's learned from it. 

The most important thing, Michelle says, is to find your voice and to move past the past. 

This is part one of Michelle's episode. The second half will be out ...

I've talked to moms who stay at home exclusively and moms who work. Moms who work in the schools their kids attend, as professionals and providers. I've talked to dads who've chosen a stay-at-home lifestyle in order to prioritize their wives' careers. 

That was all before. 

Before a pandemic. Before 2020 took John Prine and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, cruelly, and without remorse. Before the world turned itself on its head.

Holy Crow, Y'all. 

I've been looking for someone to talk about making a conscious choice not to have children since December of 2019 and, man, did Bridget deliver. This is a woman who grew up in a chaotic home with a mother who struggled with significant mental health issues, but who loved her very much, and told her so. 

Bridget displays an insane amount of insight and introspective wisdom, and I am so, so excited to share t...

Gina and I wound up discussing the differences between the classic Greek myth of Heracles and Disney's 1997 adaptation of the myth for its movie canon. 

It's different comparing Greek myth to modern life because in no way was it attempting to account for modern life. Plus we couldn't really find a lot to bitch about in terms of Disney's adaptation. 

So we just talked about it for an hour. Because that's what we do...

Jenny has a number of autoimmune and hormone disorders that prevent her from safely getting pregnant. "There's no good way for this to end," Jenny said in regards to the notion of having kids. 

In this episode, Jenny talks about the process of deciding, for the sake of not only her own health, but for the health of any potential children she might conceive, not to try having children at all. 

And, said Jenny, while it'...

Gina and I asked the Twitter Lovelies which villainesses they wanted to hear discussed from both Disney movies and the Fairy Tale canon in general. Altogether we came up with: Mother Gothel, Evil Queen, Ursula, Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Prince Charming's mother from Shrek, and Lady Tremaine. 

Rather than discuss each character (or archetype, rather) individually we approached the subject more in terms of tropes or common theme...

Gina Merritt discusses navigating the IEP process in both private and public Pennsylvania schools, teaching her son to advocate for himself, and how she wound up with adult kids who actually like her, and enjoy being around her - something I desperately hope to accomplish as well, as a mom.

I'm going to have to go to bed soon. I have to get up at 3 a.m. to drive 70 miles into the blood drive in the morning - gotta be there by 6. So it's bedtime soon and because I don't feel good about being a little later on Friday than I'd like to be, then I wanted you to have this little teaser to tide you over. Scout's honor, the full episode will be up by the end of the day on Friday. Gina kicks ass. Stay tuned...

A teaser of the episode featuring Gina Merritt, who talks about helping her son learn to self-advocate through the process of navigating his IEP in both public and private Pennsylvania schools. Also, a teaser for another potential sidecast in which Gina basically allows me to destroy all of her favorite Disney movies in the name of feminism. I'm going straight to hell. I'm sorry. Mostly to Gina.

A little ramble on the intersection of parenting human children and chicken mommin'. 

Going to be testing out a new upload schedule of a new ramble episode every two weeks. Look for new content on August 7. For now it'll be rambles and if I'm able to make it work (and I believe I will), I'll get back to uploading the remaining interviews and possibly getting some new interviews in queue for you!

Hey, y'all! 

Just wanted to take a minute and update you all on the state of the podcast, which isn't dead, but is in the process of becoming a memoir manuscript.

Check out what TMDD is becoming, and learn how you can help me out with it...

First, a bit of news: So, it's after careful consideration that I've decided to suspend pledges on Patreon. For the time being the content will be available free to everyone at all times. I'd still love it if people visited the Patreon page, and I'll take a donation any old time you feel like buying me a cup of coffee, but I'm struggling with the "new normal" as we all call it.

So things have been hairy the last couple of weeks, eh?

I'm currently back to work part time, but also have about 30 chicken eggs incubating, five hatched, and some duck eggs on the way (because my drake is either a fat hen or just not into the ladies, so we don't get fertile eggs from our ducks. Also, another friend is giving me some Brahma eggs to incubate. That's a really enormous chicken, if you're not into the ...
