To Santa, or Not To Santa, That Is The Question
Early in this week's conversation we discuss Ali entering a pitch contest to help raise funding for her new site Ends + Stems. Then we move on to the Great Santa Debate! We had no idea this was as big of an issue as it is until Ali saw a thread on her mom's group board that got vicious. People were seriously angry! So what do you tell your kid about Santa? What do you do if a kid tells your kid Santa isn't real? How did the concept of Santa become such a stressful topic?

Episode 35: Homeless in SF
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?

Episode 32: What's One More Kid?
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.

throwback! Episode 30: Penis and Vagina
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 26: Hierarchy of What to Care About
Episode 26: Hierarchy of What to Care AboutThe Friend You Need Podcast To anyone paying attention to the world around them, it seems there are SO MANY things to care about...that are asking for donations, volunteer time or that just need your input to fix. But, I'm going to guess you're tired and busy and on something of a budget - pulled in 20 directions. How do you decide what's most important? How do you decide to work with a certain cause over another? Or, do you just do nothing because of decision paralysis? This has been weighing on Ali's mind as she participates in a business start up class and is working to a launch a socially conscious business in the next few weeks. Turning to Ang for a meaningful conversation about what matters and how we decide these things helps find clarity. We'd LOVE to hear what you think.

Episode 23: Mom Shaming
The Friend You Need, Episode 23: Mom Shaming This series of articles came to our attention and we wanted to weigh in. We follow some of these "slummy mummies" in question and think they're rather refreshing. So the critic's takedown of their "real life" depiction of motherhood and all of its ups and downs was a surprise. However, her Britishness comes through in the best way and Ali's obesessed with her writing...despite her ideas. Mom shaming is real and it sucks in all of its forms. Most parents, especially moms, have witnessed this at one point or another. We're not interested in it but it does make for a great conversation. Tell us what you think! Or tell us your best (aka worst) experience with mom shaming! insta: @thefriendyouneed_podtwitter: @TFYN_podcast facebook: thefriendyouneed podcast online: www.thefriendyouneed.com Reading material/inspiration for this episode: The Main Articlehttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4508726/Why-women-boasting-slummy-mummies.html Rebuttals http://www.mirror.co.uk/lifestyle/family/we-love-kids-mums-hit-10434602 US Mom blogger RE: Mom shaming http://www.refinery29.com/2017/06/161229/mom-shaming-judging-viral-post
