I found this podcast 3 weeks after my first kid was born in 2013. Biz & Theresa had just had their 2nd babies and were sharing their birth stories. I felt like they were in the room with me, like I was part of a bigger community and I was able to get out of my head. I didn't realize how much I needed to listen to other women going through exactly what I was in real time. I've been listening ever since.
I listen throughout the work day and they keep me laughing! I love the guests they have on and the insight they provide as well as the genius/fails!!
They're really funny and I can relate to their parenting stories but Biz's voice is soooooo annoying most of the time because she is so LOUD!!! She has moments of speaking normally and then she'll get excited about something and start screaming again! It just hurt my ears no matter how low my volume is.
I really want to love this show but I'm having a hard time listening when the entire podcast sounds like they are yelling. It truly hurts my ears. I've tried turning the volume down but still an issue. Please ladies tone it down and also stop saying like. Like seriously!
I recently learned about this great podcast from a friend and have started from episode 1- so fun to binge listen to! This brightens my whole day and helps me feel connected to moms everywhere even when I'm home alone with my two year old!
Listening to this podcast literally raises my quality of life. Thanks, Biz and Teresa!
I really love these ladies. Even though my kiddos are older than Biz and Theresa's (mine are 12 and 10), so many of the topic they address are applicable and relatable no matter how old your kids are. I love that they try to approach their topics with sensitivity and awareness with being sanctimonious or precious. They're just real moms trying their best, sometimes stumbling, and doing what they can to do right by their kids and partners. I think the best part is that their unflagging and non-judgmental support for *all* moms. This is a sisterhood, and we need to stick together. Ladies, you're doing a great job!
I don't have kids but I still love listening to Theresa and Biz. Gives a funny and real look into motherhood in the modern age.
This show is wonderful! Biz and Theresa are funny, relatable, and remind parents they they are not alone.
This podcast gets me through the week. I relate, I laugh and sometimes I get a little weepy. I even learn something (bonus)!
I had a tough post partum period, and was struggling with... well, everything. A friend recommended I listen to OBM after I went on a rant about why I didn't ever get any celebration for menial things like putting the laundry away. I randomly chose the Mom Guilt episode to listen to at first. I identified with everything they said, right down to the person they interviewed who coincidentally had experienced HELLP Syndrome Like I had. So, I went back to the first episode, figuring I'd listen occasionally. 24 hours, I was hooked. I've been binge listening to it from the beginning, and I identify with every episode. I've told all my mom friends about it.
Funny, fabulous and fun! A great companion on the wild ride of parenthood.
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!
I love this show! I've finally found my tribe. And I've realized I am doing a great job at being a mom, even if no one tells me. Thanks for all the laughs and insight. Keep up the great work!
These two friends venting about all things parenthood have become like friends to me! I am binge listening to the backlog. My new favorite podcast.
Every mom can relate to Biz and Theresa. The interviews are great and you gotta love the genius and fail segment. Worth starting at the beginning and listening to all episodes.
Biz and Theresa are such an amazing duo! They are hilarious and take "parenting" to the next level! They speak the truth and it honestly feels like you are sitting with your best friends! I highly recommend this podcast!
Biz and Theresa are so relatable and hilarious. Biz especially cracks me up. They have an interesting variety of guests too.
I've been binging this podcast since I returned to work from having my first child. I first heard of it in Parents magazine, and Biz and Theresa join me on my morning and evening commutes. I thank you ladies for bringing me laughter and reminding me that this is indeed the hardest job I'll ever have. I literally cannot wait to get in my car in the morning and at night to pick up where I've left off. You're both doing an AMAZING job.
This podcast has great discussions about parenting topics and is reassuring that you're doing a good job!
My absolute favorite podcast about parenting. Look forward to the new episode every week!
I love this podcast and generally find it so helpful and entertaining. However, I can't stand how Biz constantly interrupts Teresa. Let her talk! You don't always have to chime in and talk over her. Prime example is the latest Get Ready For The Holidays episode when Teresa is talking about the library book.
I loved the mom's groups I was evolved with when my daughter was a baby. This podcast is like a supportive parenting group.
So wonderful to hear other moms experiences and know I'm not the only one who struggles being a mom. This podcast is awesome at addressing the mundane garbage any mother experiences and celebrating it.
I was immediately disappointed in this podcast. Being a working mom of three children I was hoping to hear things that would inspire me, help me laugh, and provoke me to think. As soon as these two started talking and saying "like" every three words and artificially laughing hysterically at something they've previously discussed in the introduction script, I felt like I was at so many other "kid" events where parents are corralled together--having stilted and fake conversations while waiting for dance, or soccer, or karate to end for their children. And that's how I felt after 5 minutes of waiting to actually hear what the "meat" of the podcast was going to bring...like I wanted it to hurry up and get over so I could leave the podcast. To be fair though, I don't enjoy sitting and shooting the breeze with other moms while our kids play. I like playing with my kids instead. So, that being said, if you are a mom who looks forward to sitting around talking about kids and diapers and if your weight gain is noticeable to others, this is right up your alley. If you would rather sit with other moms and talk at the park instead of playing with your kids--this is also for you. Just not for me.
Love this podcast! Nothing is off the table and Biz and Teresa have a knack for creating a judgment free environment that makes me laugh every episode.
I love the topics they cover but their "like" count each episode is through the roof, especially Theresa. Multiple "likes" in every single sentence. I couldn't even finish Episode 176 because it was so distracting.
This podcast makes me feel so much better about being a mom. Thank you for being real about how hard and wonderful being a parent can be.
My husband first introduced me to this show, thinking I needed a laugh while I was at home with the kids. Working double shifts as a nurse to be home most of the week with my kids is not easy, but this helps me get through the long days and sleepless nights. Thanks Bzi and Theresa for always keeping me going, making me feel supported and giving me a laugh when my day isn't funny.
This podcast is seriously food for the mommy soul! I have a two toddlers, and when things get challenging I do not feel so alone listening to Biz and Teresa. They are a great reminder this is all so normal:)
With 2 under 2, I can't wait for my new episode every week! I feel more empowered as a mom after listening to you two. Thank you so much for this podcast!
Love this podcast. These two are smart, witty, wise, and hilarious. I don't even have kids and love listening to this podcast and hearing their wisdom and stories and guests.
Motherhood is hard. This podcast is SO affirming and comforting. These 2 women highlights how challenging and joyful motherhood can be big and small. I'm tired and this podcast confirms and affirms why. I love this podcast. Thank you, Biz and Teresa.
Even if I could get past the fact that every other word is "like" it just seems neither thinks about what is coming out of their mouths. Obnoxious and ignorant.
Life saving. Parent affirming. So thankful for the humor, the commiseration, the pep talks to help me "Mom Up."
I feel like this podcast is making me a better mom and person!ð
One Bad Mother is something I look forward to EVERY single week and I bring up in mom conversations constantly! The show is so great and makes me feel better about the struggle and joy that is parenthood. I always know that I will feel better after listening to another episode. Love, love, love it!
What are you looking for from a podcast? This is not really a comedy podcast, not really an educational podcast. Sometimes, as parents, we want to listen to other parents who are feeling/experiencing exactly what we are. You get a lot of that here, and some of it is funny! But sometimes I want to learn as a parent, and when the experts are brought on and interviewed, you still hear a lot more from the hosts than the expert. I wish I could hear more from the person being interviewed, and less from Biz, since the first half of the show is already Biz's ranting. Not a diss on Biz (who reminds me a lot of myself), more of a shout-out to the awesome guests brought to the show. Definitely worth a listen, but not for everyone.
Stumbled upon this podcast after joining the FB group and this has been the therapy that I need as a first time mom. Biz and Theresa bring us real life discussions that make you feel like you are DOING A GOOD JOB. These women are amazing and truly a blessing to moms and dads everywhere. Love you guys!
So, the swearing took a little getting used to, but I am so glad I didn't get turned away by it. Biz and Theresa are the best friends I've never actually met. It is so refreshing to hear them cover motherhood "warts and all". You will find yourself laughing (and maybe even crying) right along with them as they cover topics that you can all too well relate to! Sorry I didn't find this sooner in my adventure into motherhood, but also glad because it lets me binge listen to episodes! Can't recommend highly enough!
My children are all grown up now, but I really enjoy the podcast anyway. It's a funny and brings back a lot of memories from when my kids were little.
This is my all time favorite podcast. Not only are Biz and Theresa hilarious, but they also capture all the emotions of parenthood. I like the format of the show and that it is broken down into sections. This helps when you cannot listen all at once. The judgement free zone they have created is magical. Keep up the good work!!!
A college friend of mine told me about this podcast when I was in my first trimester with my first child. I was scared & unsure about the whole motherhood thing and this podcast made me feel more excited and prepared. There's a whole village out there that feel the same way. They talk about the hard, honest stuff about motherhood, but also the rewarding, overwhelming joy that comes with it. I'm days away from my due date, all caught up with the podcast, and feel a strange calm. I really think one bad mother has helped get me to this peace. Love this podcast, couldn't recommend it enough!
This podcast has kept me sane when I've been up nursing my baby 3-4 times a night. It is uplifting, funny, and definitely has helped me consider that I am doing a good job, especially on a rough day or night. Biz and Theresa are hilarious and show the reality of parenting while being really relatable. If you have a sense of humor, they won't disappoint! They are doing a good job!
Love it. More than a few episodes gave me just the thing I needed- hope. This parenting thing is messy and I'm glad one bad mother exists.
I am a long-term nanny. I love my job. I am measurably better equipped to do my job, to be with children and moms and myself and the WORLD because of this hilarious, sensitive-in-the-really-important-ways, honest in every way, podcast. Biz and Theresa have an amazing way of giving support to eachother and to their listeners that is really just like the best friendships you wish you had--only more real, more flawed, more gracious and accepting...and only a moment away. SOOO GOOD for headphones while pushing a double stroller, at least for 5 minutes until the toddler says she wants to get out and "help push"... it helps me think harder, care more, and laugh longer.
I like this podcast but it's focused almost entirely on upper middle class white parenthood.
So relatable. So fun. Makes me feel like I am "doing a good job" ;)
Biz and Theresa are my spirit animals. Every podcast is like sitting down and having a real conversation with a mom friend. I love this podcast.
Biz and Theresa are so funny. This podcast is great.
