Two Moms Day Drinking

Storytelling Podcasts

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.
