One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Julie Snyder

Biz and Theresa wonder what our kids will remember of their childhoods and whether there's any way to get them to treasure our genius moments as much as we wish they would? Oh, and of course, forget our failures? That'd be nice! Plus, Biz turns a corner, it's Weaning Day ("hooray, hooray!") for Theresa, and we chat with inspiring mom of two, Senior Producer of This American Life and Executive Producer of Serial, Julie Snyder!

This week in "Your Boner is Not My Problem", Erin discusses the problem of Orthodox Judaic men refusing to sit next to women who aren't their wives (so everyone).

And speaking of politics (segue) Timothy Simons from HBO's "Veep" stops by to talk lobsters, set building, and gambling with dreams.
