Melanie Notkin, founder of Savvy Auntie, the first community for cool aunts, great aunts, godmothers and all women who love kids (but might not have them) discusses her book Otherhood and women who are childless, not by choice, but by circumstance. She and Bridget cover the assumptions people make about childless women, being told that they should have settled if they wanted kids, and how Bridget feels like she kept hitting snooze on her biological clock. Find out how feminism made men lazy, why you’re only as loyal as your options in the age of social media, and how in the battle of the sexes everyone seems to be more confused than anything. Don’t miss an incredibly honest conversation about Melanie’s ability to take the source of her greatest pain – not having children – and turn it into something that helps countless people – women and men.More
Brian Moses, stand-up comic, creator and co-producer of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, defender of un-politically correct speech and hilarious individual, talks with Bridget about getting started in stand-up in San Diego, the period when he was living out of his car, the reality of white privilege, and why humanity might not be old enough to believe in God. He and Bridget cover the cultural appropriation of Jesus, that Bridget believes in past lives, ghosts and aliens because they make life more interesting, and how trying to make it in LA is almost like being in an abusive relationship and/or living with a disease. Don’t miss their definition of “making it,” Moses’s ambition to continue progressing and raising the bar in the comedy genre, and why as a black man, he loves the Orwellian surveillance in the UK.
