This week we are talking about pregnancy myths (or are they truths?)!

Ali is pregnant with #2 and has learned it's actually true what they say about each pregancy being different! Angela has only been pregnant once and that was enough for her.  

We found a blog post where a woman talks about common pregancy myths and while we agreed with some, we also disagreed with a few. Join us as we go the list! 

Did you agree with the list? Would you add anything? Let us know! We'd love to hear from you!

The Friend You need Podcast: Episode 35, Homeless in SF

This episode was recorded in the Cole Haan Sponsored Recording Booth at Werk It: A Women's Podcast Festival. 

Guys, we have a real recording booth and sound editor! This was so much fun, even though Angela was so nervous she *almost* needed a vodka shot first. The Werk It Festival in general was great, but recording professionally was ceratinly a highlight. (and Cole Haan asked for our addresses shoe sizes....one can dream)

On this relatively short episode we talk about the homeless population in San Francisco and try to figure out how to talk to our kids about it. Admittedly, we bring up more questions than offer solutions but hey, it can't be solved in 25 minutes. 

What are you thoughts/tips for talking to little ones, or your feelings as an ubran resident about the situation?

The Friend You Need Podcast, Episode 34: Royals

What is with those royals? Do we have anything similar in America? Are you upset by Meghan Markle...why?! Ali thinks Princess Kate is boring and no fun. This week we're diving in to the tradition of the British Royal Family.

But, we start closer to home with instagram influencers, Kid Rock and other reasons why Michigan is becoming the next Florida...its not too late to check yourself MI.

Episode 33: EARTHQUAKE!!!!

We both live in an earthquake zone, in fact, "the big one" is inevitable. Most of you live where some natural disaster can strike. And doesn't the planet just seem to be raging?

The Friend You Need: Episode 32: What's One More Kid?

Ali's family is 20 week away from meeting baby #2; Anglea's One and Done Thankyouverymuch. This week we're talking about the big decision to throw another kid in the mix. Why? Why not? What have other illustrous commentors said on this issue? And, potentially the most fun, we're calling out the jerks who say dumb things like not giving your kid a sibling is selfish. (If you're one of those people, maybe don't listen). 
*IF you're wondering about have ZERO KIDS, go back to episode 7, where we talk about whether or not to have ANY kids. Its a different conversation. 
**IF you're wondering about having 3 or more kids? We don't have any episodes for you and can't relate.

The Friend You Need Podcast: Episode 31: UK True Crime Podcast Interview

Don't miss this one guys! Our new friend Adam, who hosts (and researches and is the one man dynamo behind) the UK True Crime Weekly Podcast is our guest. He even said, if one of us gets murdered, he'll interview the other on his show! Our big break :)

Seriously, though, we had a great time talking to him all the way across the pond and hearing his tips of on how not to get murdered (stay single) and what drew him to the genre in the first place. 

Angela is a huge True Crime fan and specifically was a huge fan of Adam's show, so this was the highlight of our week for sure. Hope you listen in and enjoy it. Check out his facebook page too and make sure to tell us about your favorite true crime books and podcasts.

We didn't say Penis or Vagina enough the first time (and OK, we know the actual thing you see is called the Vulva) so we're bringing this gem back. 

The Friend You Need, Episode 20: Penis and Vagina

Penis penis penis. Vagina vagina vagina. Just say it! This week we talk about the controversial (or obvious, in our case) issue of naming baby's private parts. The Atlantic published this article about what we call our body parts and at the same time, Ali's crazy mom facebook group tackled a situation where certain members didn't think you should use grown up terms. Uh, no. Lets call an elbow an elbow please and do NOT call it a cookie.

We also talk about staying at home with toddlers (omg, I'm tired), women in the workplace, and our favorite summer things!

Episode 29: Aging and Birthdays

Angela will only be in her 30s for ONE MORE year! How can Ali have a friend this old? We had a lot of fun with this one talking about being in our 20s and how we've felt growing older this past decade. We look foward at getting even older, botox and growing kids. A couple of fun articles were sourced which we'll post on Facebook. Notably, a group of women in their 70s comment on aging and we love some of their tips. 

Happy Birthday Angela!
