One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Matthew Dicks

Biz and Theresa want more! More! More! More! More stuff, more babies, more pets, more emotional gratification and in no way is it the same as our kids wanting more. Or, alright fine, maybe it's exactly the same. So we explore the why and the what can be done in hopes of fostering an appreciation for moderation in our kids. Plus, Biz goes to first grade, Theresa actually has a great vacation with her family, and we talk to author and storyteller Matthew Dicks about his new novel, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs.

Back in April, we talked about the online crafty marketplace Etsy going public, how the company has changed over the past 10 years, and what all of that means to the makers who sell their goods on the site. But there was an important voice missing from that show. (I couldn't interview anyone from Etsy because the company was in the mandated “quiet period” ahead of the IPO.)

Today, we get some responses to sellers' concerns about the direction the company is taking with Heather Jassy, Senior Vice President of Members & Community at Etsy and check in with Wall Street Journal reporter Miriam Gottfried to discuss the erratic performance of Etsy's stock over the past four months. We'll also talk about the looming threat on the horizon: a handmade marketplace on Amazon.

Special thanks to Etsy sellers Abby Glassenberg and Susie Ghahremani along with former Etsy seller Grace Dobush for lending their insights to this developing story.
