Raquel and Katie talk with their first male guest: Jason Jude Hill, who founded a film company, GrumpyFILMS, with his husband and business partner. We talk aspiring to be DINKs, coming out (both as gay, and as child-free), caring for a bag of flour, and maintaining friendships with your friends who have kids— and building friendships with kids themselves.

This week, Katie and Raquel talk with Miranda Forster, who’s going through the process of starting a family with her poker player wife. We talk babysitting (of course), George Michael, the sperm search, the Real Housewives, and loving your dogs less.
This week, Katie and Raquel sit down with Irene McGee to find out what happens when people stop being polite— and start getting pregnant. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) The comedian, writer, podcaster and former reality star talks about her great-great-grandfather Ira, Lyme disease, frowny faces, motherhood without marriage, building a one-woman show while pregnant, and her uterus’s favorite hobbies (endometriosis and knitting).
Katie and Raquel sit down to chat with Katie’s younger sister, Beth Compa. A lawyer in New Orleans, Beth has always known she wants kids-- from mothering her Cabbage Patch Kids to babysitting. Over the occasional hiss of the air conditioner, we discuss princesses and castles, negotiating career and family, expectations vs. reality, Lionel Messi, and the parents’ impossible dream of drinking coffee and reading the paper, alone, for an hour.

Katie and Raquel sit down in midtown with high-powered business lady Nicole Cramer, who, when not running worldwide advertising creative teams, is constantly working on her own projects. We talk growing up with the actual Supermom, finding one’s passions (plural), dating (or not) in New York, raising a child in the internet age, baking her grandma's cookies, and advice for the next generation.
