One Bad Mother Episode 126: Why Aren't These Kids Having Fun? plus guest Dr. Jessica Zucker on Postpartum Anxiety

One Bad Mother
Dr. Jessica Zucker

Biz and Theresa explore how intoxicating it is when we see our kids having fun and, just like being intoxicated, how bad it feels when we try to capture that buzz again and just can’t. Plus, Dr. Jessica Zucker returns to talk about postpartum anxiety and anxiety surrounding miscarriage, and shares with us her beautiful new line of pregnancy loss cards that we hope will reduce the stigma associated with miscarriage and grief.

Erin is fresh out of Spider Gypsy class and Bryan is finally sober! Perfect timing.

Annie wouldn’t stand for this! Plus, Borchardt Elementary School in Texas is all about empowering women with GIRL TALK, while the boys are forced to discuss college and career in their respective guidance counselor classes.

Dream Bunkers!


Hello Buddies! This week, Travis and Andie discuss their "dream bunkers"! From basic to extravagant, what would they want to not just survive, but comfortably wait out the apocalypse? Would they want a pool? Perhaps a room full of puppies? Maybe a walk in freezer? Or maybe just a bathroom with a door on it?! Not only that, what would they fill their rooms with to ensure that if they go insane, they do it in a very controlled way? Listen, enjoy and tell a friend!

"The America’s finest museum of medical history, the Mütter Museum displays its beautifully preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models, and medical instruments in a 19th-century “cabinet museum” setting." Dr. Hicks will join us to talk about Dr. Mütter and the many wonders that lay within the museum. Plus maybe he'll do medical experiments on Jesse? We'll see.

“Hari Kondabolu is the comedy equivalent of a punk rock concert that breaks out at a human right’s rally. He is a truly inspirational performer who is ahead of his time and is grabbing us by the lapels to catch up with him.” W. KAMAU BELL

Since 2010, Jesse Thorn has been sharing his hour-long talk, "Make Your Thing," with sold-out crowds in cities around the country and abroad. "Make Your Thing" focuses on how Thorn turned his college radio show into an independent media powerhouse, and how 12 other people, many of them his friends and colleagues, exemplify the qualities necessary to make independent artistic and career aspirations a reality in the internet age. Join Jesse as he shows that it is possible to merge the commercial world with nonprofit ideals.

After the talk, David Rees will lead an interactive Q&A session with Jesse. Please note that David Rees will be filling in for John Hodgman, who has had an unexpected conflict.
