Mary Katharine Ham and Bethany Mandel have a new Clubhouse obsession—spurred by the anti-speech scolds at the NYT who don’t like it. How can we normalize doing normal things post-pandemic as vaccines roll out and change the game?
Finding balance in the pandemic debate has always been hard, but the Ladybrains discuss making their own risk evaluations, changing them with the facts on the ground, and honoring the gifts of a miracle vaccine and every single day we’re given. Enjoy our unfettered conversation 😉
Mark Katharine Ham and Kelly Maher know that NOW is the time to shut our brains off and take a break—and what better way to escape than to fall into a world of Lords, Ladies… and a Duke who loves to take his shirt off? Is it historically accurate? No. Should you watch it anyway? Probably. (SPOILER ALERT!!!@)
Congratulations—you’re pregnant! Now… what are you supposed to wear when you don’t even want to put on pants? Especially when you don’t really have a FULL ON bump? Fashion guru and mom of 3 Emily Zanotti tells the very overwhelmed and pregnant Lyndsey Fifield what to wear when you’re expecting.
Special shoutout to LadyBrains listener Jenna Stocker, the guest of honor this week on The Half Percent Podcast. Listen to Jenna’s episode as she shares her experience as a Marine Corps officer or subscribe to The Half Percent Podcast in your favorite podcast app.
Our most-requested episode every year looks a little different than usual (like everything else amirite?) but some things never change. Kelly Maher and Lyndsey Fifield talk turkey (no, literally – trigger warning for discussions of turkey death), traditions, family, recipes… and you know, we take a couple rabbit trails to tell stories because THIS IS WHO WE ARE. Tuck in—and enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
And if you’re looking for a good post-Thanksgiving podcast to listen to, Ladybrains listener (“Ladybrainiac”) Jenna Stocker will be the guest on The Half Percent Podcast to talk about her experience as a Marine. Subscribe now to the Half Percent Podcast at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc., and you’ll get Jenna’s episode on November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving). Just search for “The Half Percent.”
We’re not going to give you self-care tips or talk about how “in these times” we’re all soooo stressed out. Kelly Maher and Lyndsey Fifield have figured out that sometimes you just need to sit with a friend and acknowledge that things are chaotic in your life… without immediately looking for answers or life hacks to make it better. Just tuck in!
Mary Katharine Ham and Lyndsey Fifield are coffee addicts—but are they coffee snobs? It’s complicated. Did you know we could talk about coffee for this long? We didn’t either—but apparently National Coffee Day is a perfect time to pay homage to our wonderful, wonderful caffeinated ritual
