#RADIO this week! – #ManPanic

June 9, 2013
A Pew study came out showing that moms are now 40% of breadwinners, and conservative "pundits" and politicians starting a #ManPanic, saying working moms are a "catastrophe" making America "mediocre," and more. Ridiculous! On this show experts and moms tell the real story about how having moms in the labor force is both a necessity for many families and is also helping our overall economy. We discuss the irony of leaders saying that moms shouldn't work as they also cut programs for hungry kids like SNAP (food stamps), we learn about ways to get access to healthy food, including how to build...

Our nation voted to not veto the DREAM Act. And we voted to make sure that the very wealthy aren’t paying lower taxes than those who are struggling. It was a good night because on the whole we voted together to move forward as a country where women’s economic security is also our national...

A Teachable Moment About the U.S. Election - Thanks to Foreign News

November 5, 2012
Driving this morning with my nine year-old, as we half-listened to the BBC news on the radio, yielded a nice teachable moment. They advertised their round-the-clock election coverage of the U.S. Presidential race. It sounded momentous and a little urgent. I took their tone for granted, but I’m glad my daughter, Sophia, didn’t. Here’s how the conversation followed: Sophia: “Mommy, why would the BBC care about the U.S. election? It’s not their country.” Me: “That’s such a good observation. It’s our election, but the whole world is watching.” Sophia: “Why?” Me: “The United States is the...
