Ellie has been my mom companion since my little girl was born. She has no idea about the huge and living impact she has had in our family life. I’ve read pretty much every book she has recommended and listened religiously to all episodes. Ellie, all the work you do helps so many moms out there find their own way to make this journey one of love and growth. I can’t thank you enough but I can assure you I’ll keep sharing your voice to all the mamas I know. Blessings to you and your family.

Love the topics

My little moment of calm in the car

I found this podcast shortly after having my second baby, and it has been a lifesaver. Ellie covers serious topics that provide useful information but also tells stories that make you laugh. The show's tagline of "celebrate and commisserate" says it all. I highly recommend this podcast for any mom who wants to feel a little less alone in the #momlife.

Great format & really interesting guests

Thank you Ellie Knauss for all of your hard work. I like the single host/single guest format. Great guests... my favorite episodes have been the interviews with experts/authors in education, swimming lessons & safety and the most recent one about child safety with Pattie Fitzgerald (who was so smart and funny btw!). I would not mind having to listen to ads during this podcast at all... also I read some reviews that said this podcast was not relatable for a lot of moms. I don’t agree. Highly recommend!

I just love this podcast. I listen to old episodes every day, and have listened to some more than once, but there's just so much in them and sometimes I need reminders! It's so authentic. Ellie brings on great guests, asks great questions, delves really deep, and is so easy to listen to (not always easy to find in a podcast!). So grateful I found Atomic Moms!

Love this so much

Ellie Knaus is changing the way mothers are viewed and think about themselves in this revolutionary podcast. I have been a fan since the start and I can't wait to hear more!

I know a lot of people who “make” podcasts. I have friends who podcast about health, comic books, parenting, etc. ANYONE can “make” a podcast. Ellie actually puts together content where moms (or dads) can learn from leading experts about so many different topics. Listening to Atomic Moms is always time well spent.

I only recently found about the podcast world, and I lucked out and found Ellie Knaus with Atomic Mom’s. She talks from her heart, always honest and that’s what is so relatable and enjoyable to listen to. Topics are on point & I can’t thank Ellie enough for giving me an hour once a week to spend with her!

Fun & thought-provoking

Been enjoying this podcast from Week 9–33—and will continue to as this babe enters the world and becomes a fully-functioning, fully-tantruming lil human! Other mama podcasts I’ve found are unbelievably annoying, so this is the only one I listen to. Ellie covers a nice range of topic, tone, and interviewees. Keep it up Ellie! And thank you!! :D

Thank you!

Do not recommend

by Bye Felicia 987865 on Jul 16, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Two main criticisms-1.) very judgmental- don't drink! Heaven forbid you enjoy a glass of wine now and then. Doing so apparently means you're OPTING OUT of being a mom and you must not be FEELING YOUR FEELINGS.2.) encourages head in the sand behavior - don't give your kids external validation. Heaven forbid you tell your kid good job for an A on the report card or congratulate them for winning a soccer game. That only makes kids then need external validation. Best to just ignore all your kid's achievements and hopefully they will too.

My favorite podcast...EVER! :)

This is hands down the best podcast I listen to...and I listen to many on a regular basis. I discovered this podcast in 2015 as a brand new Mom and have listened to every.single.episode since and have found this to be most relevant, helpful, supportive and FUN -- especially for us Mamas in the early (and often lonely) years of parenting! Even though I've never met Ellie in person, I consider her to be the best Mom friend ever as she takes the time out of her own full life to research, book, interview, edit and share these outstanding podcasts with all of us. She finds experts in all areas of parenting & childhood well-being and asks the most thoughtful questions. This podcast connected me to the books I should be reading as a Mom and inspired me to be a better parent while reminding me of the importance of self-care in order to BE the best parent I can be. I love that this podcast is "Switzerland" and respectful of everyone in the often controversial landscape of parenting approaches and I really appreciate her interviews with experts and parents on all sides of the issues. I also love her humor and fun tidbits she shares on her own parenting adventures. She is a gem. I could go on and on--and I DO whenever I meet a new Mom. I'm continually sharing and singing the praises of this podcast! :) Thank you Ellie for all you do to make this podcast happen. You have impacted ME and our family and I am sure the lives of countless other families with every episode! You and your podcast are an international treasure! :) AnnaLiisa WhiteNashville, Tennessee

I'm a new-ish mom (my little man just turned 7 months old). Ellie and her guests keep me laughing and feeling connected to my babes and mama-ness as I drive to work and back home. I love how diverse her topics and guests are... every episode, at least once, I'm listening going, "Yeassss... sing it sisters suffragette! Me too!" Ellie, new motherhood can be totally overwhelming and even lonely at times-- Atomic Moms has been a great space of joy and fun to keep me smiling. Thank you!

Wow! This is absolutely my favorite podcast, and I spend an unhealthy amount of time listening to podcasts. To be honest, I am not a mother, but I do feel called to be a mother someday when it is the right time in my and my partner's life. I guess I listen to Ellie's interviews to store up information for later or to make a mental note that motherhood will be a more difficult journey than I think. But I really just find the podcast fun and uplifting, each episode is like listening in to a couple of girlfriends' conversation.

I look forward to this podcast every week

I'm a new mom who doesn't have a lot of mom friends. Most of the moms I know had kids well over a decade ago. It was really helpful to have people in the thick of it with me at the touch of a button.

My little one is just a touch older than Elle's girl (and Bianca's from the earlier episodes) and this podcast came into my life JUST in time.

This podcast has been such a life saver. I don't have many close friends that are working moms. I used to feel so isolated and that no one knew what I was experiencing. It's great to listen to all the episodes and hear so much I can relate to. The subjects are real and honest and important. The parenting experts are awesome and have helped me improve and feel confident in my parenting style moving forward. I love the episodes about beautiful and unique families. I also love how much value relationships with partners are given. In life I often see people undercutting their partners instead of building them up. Thanks Ellie for your podcast!

My Favorite Podcast, ALL Women Should Listen!

by amylrabinowitz on Mar 23, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Atomic Moms is one of my favorite podcasts. I cannot say enough good things about it. I found them via SoulCycle which was promoting one of AM's interviews with a California SoulCycle instructor and Papa, David Zint. I ride a few times a week at SoulCycle on the east coast and wanted to hear the perspective of an instructor. I married my hunky husband in 2014 but we're planning to wait a few more years before we have kids, so I didn't come to the podcast because of my interest in parenting or child development. I immediately fell in love with Ellie and Bianca and loved listening to all of the existing episodes and following weekly as new ones came out. Starting in 2016, Ellie is leading the show solo, and she is just as wonderful on her own. Some of my favorite segments from recent episodes are the first few minutes of the show pre-guest when Ellie just gives an honest, funny recap of her day/week. It always resonates with me. Even if you're not a mom or aren't interested in parenting, the podcast is about being a happy, healthy, loving woman. It is about balancing life, family, friends, and work; finding your own perspective and learning to say no to other ways without judgment; dropping expectations and being present with what is. Ellie has taught me a lot about pregnancy, birth, and the early years of childhood (I will be much more prepared for the next few years!), but she has also taught me about a lot being a friend, a daughter, a professional, and a wife. E: A huge thank you for continuing the podcast, inviting your wonderful friends to chat, and sharing your family with us. Lots of love.

Very comfortable and entertaining
