One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Kiera Butler

This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa wonder why stepping foot into elementary school can churn up our own personal anxiety about making friends as adults with other parents. Is it all in our minds or should we just hang out behind the cafeteria and start smoking? Plus Biz gives up the bottle, Theresa takes up the bottle and Kiera Butler, a senior editor at Mother Jones joins to talk about the silence surrounding birth related injuries.

Wrestlemania is the longest, most exciting and most exhausting WWE event every single year. The 33rd edition of the show was no different.

In fact, between Mania, the Hall of Fame, RAW, Smackdown, TakeOver: Orlando and the pre and post-shows for those events, there were over 24 hours (!!!!!) of WWE content on TV in the past seven days.

New champions were crowned, new stars debuted, old stars retired, and a lot more.

It’s can all be overwhelming, but luckily the Nation of Conversation is here to break down all of the things that happened… or at least the stuff that we cared about.

Hosted by , Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

If you wanna talk about more wrestling throughout the week be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.
