Amanda D. Watson, author of The Juggling Mother: Coming Undone in the Age of Anxiety, is here to discuss her area of expertise! We talk about media representations of juggling mothers (in TV, movies, commercials) and who’s left out of them, plus I ask Amanda about her own little ones, her thoughts on all of the “mommy needs a drink” memes, the role of influencers in both normalizing and easing the burden on moms (plus she shares one of her favourite accounts to follow) and the impact of COVID-19 on the “coming undone” of the juggling mothers. This was one of my favourite chats to date!
Also in this episode I recommend:
The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg
and the new podcast
Go Ask Ali
