Besides covering mental health issues, our weekly podcast delivers the news you can’t live without (usually the funny stuff buried under the political forecast) and are probably too busy to read. Our audience is swamped with working and raising children. So, we make it our mission to keep you up to date on pop culture, relationship, family, and parenting trends. Casey and I meet at Mental Mom headquarters (his dining room table, or, our makeshift garage studio when it’s not freezing cold – or – at my kitchen counter – we’re flexible) and discuss societal trends – especially the trends I missed over the years while parenting tiny humans – I call this my “parenting coma” segment on the show. Casey doesn’t have children and has never been married – while he would never admit to this – he’s kind of a millennial hipster. I’m the happily divorced mother of two beautiful school age daughters who live with me half the time and their father the other half. Our content creates itself. The podcast is a culmination of our thoughts, experiences, and observations. We like to make fun of celebrities and people who solicit themselves on Instagram. Sometimes we get serious for a minute and talk about the vaccination debate and other times we discuss the mother who made headlines for naming her kid “ABCDE” pronounced “Absidy.” We go where others are afraid to go; like when we uncovered the truth behind Elves on Shelves – not only do many parents despise the tradition – some think it’s teaching our children to be ok with big brother spying on us. Oh yeah – we went there. No shame. We talk about it all. My 5 year old recently asked how do I NOT have babies? We can’t do this alone people! We have to stick together. I wanted to create a community of laughter and support to get through those all-nighters when our kids are sick, or our wife is in labor. Something to listen to when cleaning, driving or working at the job you are tolerating. Let’s all just admit it’s not easy – juggling all we have to juggle. That’s why we talk about relationship problems – especially when one struggles with mental health, like me. My long journey with depression, anxiety, and ADHD has inspired me to be a voice and encourage others to talk about our feelings. Our fears. Our symptoms. Hopefully, the show has a little something for everyone; mildly educational; mostly entertaining.
