Like old friends

by Izzie iTunes on Nov 01, 2015
Rating: ★★★★★

Without exaggeration I think I've listened to every episode twice (in some cases three times - the "confidence" episode maybe 4 times - it makes me feel less alone!) It's like I am listening to old friends, I laugh and nod my head along with them as they share their geniuses and fails. I'm a mom of two, and I can fully attest that no one gives a sh*t. This podcast keeps me sane.

Love this show. I look forward to it each week. I've been a fan since before I became a mom. I enjoy the friendly and non-judgemental conversations and the guests each week. The show makes me feel like I'm having coffee with friends, and I feel that it has made me a better friend to other moms.

Can't deal with her voice

I bet this podcast has a lot to offer but I just cannot deal with the strident fake laughter of one of the hosts. I've tried a couple times to get past it but it's just not working for me.

Best part of my week!!

Theresa and Biz are my spirit animals, and this podcast has honestly changed for the better the way I view parenthood and my (new) role in the world. Can’t recommend this highly enough.

I love this show, so much. Being a mom can be so hard, and Biz and Teresa make me feel like I am not alone! I laugh out loud to myself almost every episode. Thanks for brining some levity and sanity to some touchy, yet real and important subjects. You’re doing a great job.

I seriously cannot say enough good things about this show. It is such an honest and funny look at parenthood. I started listening in November and have almost listened to every single episode. I am hooked! I love how honest and personal it is. If you are a parent and haven’t started listening to this podcast, you must start now!

As someone who is anticipating having kids in the future, this show does two great things. It really normalizes the reality of parenting and relieves some of the expectations and fears you might have about the enormity of the task. It also gives me a weekly fix to have a good laugh and appreciate how insane my life ISN'T.

Love it

This podcast is a beacon of my week. I love this show so much. Biz and Theresa are doing a world of good for mothers everywhere. The episodes are ALWAYS entertaining - the hosts have terrific chemistry and so much warmth and support for each other and for all moms. One Bad Mother gets me through the long mom days and the community they’ve created is, as they say on the show, GENIUS.

Love listening to these ladies talk honestly about parenting. They talk about the good, the bad, the ugly and have great guests to help us do it better.

Good Job!!

Biz and Theresa make me feel like what I feel about mothering is not so bad. They encourage moms to know that we are doing a good job even in the midst of our fails and our break downs. It is nice to laugh along to a show with women who seem to feel very similar to the way most moms feel and not feel judged or inadequate when we are all just trying to do a good job.

This is it!

I'm a first time mom to an 11 week old suffering from PPD. A great friend of mine recommended that I listen to OBM a long time ago and a few weeks ago I finally listened.What a breath of fresh air. The episode that addressed PPD made me feel so connected, validated and "normal" that I cried through most of it, but in a good way. Hell, I'm getting teary eyed just thinking about it right now.Thank you Biz and Theresa for being real and being amazing.

Not for me

May be great for others but not my personal preferences. Nothing ground breaking or different than a conversation with any other mom. I also did like the valley-girl type banter. It was hard to listen to.

I wish I could take it!

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I have really tried to like this show, I started on episode 1 and I am working my way forward. I made it to episode 14 and I just can’t take it any more. It seems like Biz says “like" about every 4th word. She interrupts, talks only about herself even in the middle of interviewing guests! I wish this wasn’t as irritating of a podcast, the topics are of interest, but I just can’t take the “whoos!” and the “likes” anymore.

This is a great job!

This podcast is hilarious and makes me feel so non-judged about everything. Theresa and Biz have a great rapport and are just fun to listen to. The genius/fail segment is my favorite thing ever, and I always look forward to my Friday commute (well the part of the commute after I drop the baby off...) to listen. Keep it up!!

Amazing ladies!

This podcast encompasses every emotion from parenting and makes you realize that they are all normal! Not everyone moment in life is what you dreamt of and that's totally normal, preach Biz and Theresa. These ladies have figured out how to approach subjects in non judgey ways, throw in some humor, and host great guests!

so so so funny

by Zoe Sierra on Nov 13, 2014

My family asks me why I listen to a podcast about parenting. I started because it was on the MaxFun network, and I keep listening because it is hilarious and educational. The Genius and Fail segment may have me prepared for any possible children of my own.

Helps me to not feel alone in parenthood

by Hildahelga on Oct 28, 2014
Rating: ★★★★★

This is an addictive show. They really do talk honestly which is great. If you don’t have a lot of support in parenting, sometimes you feel that you are the only one experiencing things. My only negative comment is that I wish they could curb the use of “like” in their language. It is so distracting to an otherwise wonderful show.

fun ladies!

I am thinking about becoming a mother someday, and this podcast makes me less scared of that. I feel like i am getting the first real discussion about motherhood, which most moms don't really feel like talking about when i'm trying to get advice.

I don’t have kids, and a lot of the “mom blog” world gets on my nerves, but Theresa and Biz are hilarious, and this is anything but a “mommy” thing.

I hate to be overly dramatic, but this show really is life changing. Beyond being funny, smart, and insightful, Biz and Theresa have inspired me to judge less and support more. They’re doing a GREAT job!

I started listening to this podcast about a month before I got pregnant and it is exactly what I needed to get through pregnancy and first time motherhood. Someone actually telling me I'm not crazy for not loving every moment?! Biz and Theresa - you are my mom crushes.

I love One Bad Mother, and look forward to each week’s new episode. Biz and Theresa do such a great job of sharing their personal journeys in a universal way. And they’re really funny. Great job, ladies!

Real, hard, honest, truth

Biz and Theresa are totally committed to getting the real truth out from their selves and from their guests. Hearing the truth about parenting is incredibly cool for those of us who are parents as well as everyone else who doesn’t have kids. It’s the best kind of true storytelling.

Such a good job!

I started listening to one bad mother within the first few episodes, right when I found out I was pregnant. Biz & Theresa are funny and thoughtful women and pretty much my mom best friends (it's a one way relationship, although I have called in a few times). Great show, great guests, great community. I recommend it in person all the time, so I figured I'd recommend it here too.

I heard Biz on the Totally Mommy podcast, loved her energy, and got so excited to learn she had her own podcast! I'm obsessed with this podcast! Witty, fun, and REAL! Theresa and Biz are a great team, and make you feel so much better about parenthood! The quality and flow is exceptional! Keep them coming girls!!!

Simultaneously Positive and Realistic!

by Ear Buddy on Sep 11, 2015

Biz and Theresa have created a podcast that is endlessly positive and nonjudgmental. At the same time, they are realistic about the difficulties of parenting and honest about the fears, annoyances, and other not so great things we all feel about this most important job. On top of all that, they are hilarious. This show is GENIUS!

I really wanted to like this

by StephAB on Sep 16, 2014
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I think the hosts are funny and what they say is great…I just can’t get past HOW they say it. Biz’s voice is beyond annoying. I mostly love Theresa, but her laugh is grating. I listened to about 20 and am now deleting the rest. There are other mom podcasts that I like much better.

I've been listening to the show for almost a year now, and it's become one of my favorite podcasts. I'm not going to lie, it took a while for me to get into it. The use of the word "like" in the podcast just drives me crazy, but it's still a really good show despite that. Give it a few episodes before you really judge whether you like it or not. Thanks for making this show and being a safe place for parents!

You're doing a great job!

Not the Momma

by KynaFairge on Jul 01, 2014
Rating: ★★★★★

I'm not a mom...yet. But this podcast has been great in settling some of my fears of not being able to be the perfect mom from Pinterest...or my MIL. Just like every kid is different being a mom can be different for different people. While I'm not always impressed with how they handle differing religious views (more specfically the Birthcontrol episode was disappointing in this regard). I can get past it. I've seen some people comment on the "likes" and "Valley Girl" speak. I think that's overstated and not as prevelant as portrayed in those reviews. Biz and Theresa are speaking like I do with my girlfriends but it's not over animated or an act.

Funny, thoughtful - a great way to spend an hour

by doingagoodjob on Aug 28, 2015
Rating: ★★★★★

Biz and Theresa have a great podcast about parenting. it's for mothers, fathers, caregivers, or anyone who wants to talk about issues surrounding parenting. I have an almost two year-old and can relate to a lot of what is discussed. Some episodes are less funny than others - a recent one discussed miscarriages. But all are affirming and remind everyone that parenting is difficult and you're doing a good job at it. I find the parent rants especially fun to listen to, as I've been there many times. My only complaint, and it is so dumb it's not even worth mentioning, is the music they use after their guest caller. I just freakin hate that song, it makes me feel like I'm walking in Bed Bath and Beyond. But whatever, it's a crappy 6 seconds, then I get to listen to my favorite podcast again. :)

Thank you!

This show has saved my sanity over the last 6 months of new motherhood. Biz and Theresa basically have unknowingly become my best friends during the craziest/awesomest/hardestadventure of my life so far. I hate that I now have to wait a week for each episode! Keep up the good work, guys! ❤️
