MommyCast Show #290: When Does Childhood End?
Puberty is a milestone, no doubt. But is this really when childhood ends? A report from ABCNews says that according to surveys recently taken in Britain, 11 is it! Paige and I discuss this in reference to our recent interview with Bob Compton, Executive Producer of 2 Million Minutes (see show #289). Where is this all heading? Our song is All This Time by Rebecca Loebe. This show is brought to you by FullTerm. Thanks to Dixie for sponsoring our show!


MommyCast Show #289: Addicted to Motherhood
There are many reasons for women to want to have large families. But, could one of those reasons be an addiction? In a recent report from ABCNews.com, doctors explain that some women continue to have babies because they are actually addicted to motherhood! Then, Paige and I share some great comments from the MommyCast Facebook Group. (Have you joined yet?) Our song is Symmetry by Edwin Derricut. This show is brought to you by FullTerm.

The Satellite Sisters


The Satellite Sisters are five real sisters: Julie, Liz, Sheila, Monica and Lian Dolan. After growing up in the same Connecticut house with two parents, three brothers and one black lab, they went off to lead very different adult lives, only to come back together in their 30's and 40's to create The Satellite Sisters. The Dolan sisters have been married, single and divorced. They have older kids, little kids and no kids. They have worked as teachers and nurses, Fortune 500 business leaders and major university admissions directors, school auction chairwomen and team moms. They are news junkies, People Magazine subscribers and lovers of great books. They have lived in big cites and small towns, in America and abroad. It is these lives and experiences and knowledge and opinions that the Satellite Sisters bring to their radio conversations every day from their posts in three very different cities.

News. Talk. Laughs. The Satellite Sisters tackle the world one cup of coffee at a time.

Manic Mommies


Erin and Kristin, the Manic Mommies are working moms, juggling kids, careers, husbands, and households. Join us as we try not to lose our minds...or our senses of humor. Working moms everywhere will hear themselves in the voices of Erin and Kristin, creators and hosts of Manic Mommies, the weekly podcast for moms trying to do it all!

Friends, neighbors, and communications professionals, Erin Kane and Kristin Brandt are thirty-something moms juggling careers, children, husbands, and housework...and trying not to loose their minds! Living in the same suburban Boston neighborhood, the two moms first met on a beautiful Spring day in 2004, when Kristin walked up Erin's sidewalk and simply introduced herself. After countless Saturday play dates for their toddlers, the women realized they had built an important support group for working moms. Problem was, they were the only two in it!

What started on a whim one Saturday morning has quickly become an online destination for women balancing deadlines, diaper duty, and day care. The centerpiece of this community is the weekly Manic Mommies podcast, which is recorded in either Erin or Kristin's living room on a Macintosh PowerBook using the software program GarageBand. Lighthearted and funny, Manic Mommies is a weekly ritual for listeners. One listener commented: "I like that Kristin and Erin are two moms just like me--they deal with the same issues that I deal with on a regular basis. Their conversations are just like the ones I have with my friends. Listening to their podcast is like dropping in on some friends for 40 mins."
