One Bad Mother Episode 189: The Winter Blues, Plus Graphic Novelist Jenny Jaeckel On Spending Five Months In The NICU

Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Jenny Jaeckel

Biz and Theresa take a walk in a winter wonderland of HORRORS! Is there something special about the winter weather that makes it seem harder to parent? Or is it being trapped inside more? Maybe its all the holidays, snow days, and sick days that make it seem impossible to get anything done? Or maybe Biz and Theresa are just displacing our own parenting ennui on a season. Plus, Biz pulls the plug on swimming, Theresa is still pregnant, and we talk to Jenny Jaeckel about her new graphic novel Spot 12: Five Months in the Neonatal ICU.

Margaret brings up late 90s bands that make her smile and some that make her cringe. Wynter talks about why horror films from her childhood still hold up, and Karen discusses the manifestation of her baby feminism in relation to Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda. We find out what the panel is all about this week, and what jams they are listening to. **PLUS** Guy Branum calls in to tell us about his new show and what show he's all about (*hint* Rita Moreno features heavily in this segment).

Hey Buddies! Hope all is well with you! It sure has been one heck of a week, huh? We have a question for you, WYP travel backwards in time or forwards in time? Do you have any plans for your bug out vehicle? Might we suggest a dolphin boat? Perhaps you would prefer a modded smart car? For my money, I think i'm gonna go with a personal helicopter! Our Buddy in The Bunker this week is Katy Dolle! Katy chats with us about the recent marches and we get a little political! Warning: Things get a little heavier than normal. Not only do we talk politics, there discussions of rape and abuse as well. We understand if you'd rather skip that! Otherwise, enjoy the show and don't forget to share!
