Episode 10: Don't let the accent fool you

January 12, 2021

|

31 minutes long

Mature topics and language alert! In this wide-ranging episode with Bobbie Oliver, the three of us have a grand time conversing in three different languages, all of them English. We talk to Bobbie about her unconventional path to motherhood. Let's just say, she could run a master class on embracing what life sends your way. We talk about standard outsider problems like daring to dream and being judged for our accents. The conclusion? Let them misunderestimate (sic) us! It makes the reveal more fun.

As always, if you are looking for parenting tips...are you open to cautionary tales?

In this short episode, Smita and Lalita reflect on how fun it's been to do the podcast and what to expect in the new season. They discuss issues like whether our butts are mad at us and international underwear nomenclature. Let's just say pants don't mean the same thing everywhere. They also explore the potential for an alter ego podcast, "We Hate Mom Jokes", but fortunately it doesn't go very far.

30 minutes long

We talk to Karinda Dobbins, a standup comic, screenwriter, ex-biotechnologist and, say it with me, mom. We chat about the therapeutic value of standup comedy and if nothing else, it's one way to get people to listen to what we say. We discuss cultural differences in parenting, but also universal truths, like the undeniable the power of The Look (TM). And that this is all one long form improv, so we may as well have fun.
