This podcast is lighthearted and fun while still addressing issues that weigh heavy on every momâs heart. I thoroughly enjoy laughing along with the stories and hearing good advice on parenting.
The best parenting podcast out there! Ellie is smart, relatable and entertaining. I appreciate her ability to showcase varying philosophies, opinions and experiences in an non-judgmental and detailed way!
I was lucky enough to meet Ellie at an event and she is an absolute pleasure! Atomic Moms provides such fabulous content that is educational and also fun! Make sure to add Atomic Moms to your Podcast list today!!
Not too long ago I had the opportunity to meet Ellie and learn about Atomic Moms. I love the podcast because all the episode topics are relatable to me! The episodes are entertaining and most importantly full of great info!!
I look forward to listening every week! Relevant topics presented in such a laid back non-judgement all way. Seriously love love love Ellie!
Iâm so happy I found this podcast! So many episodes hit so close to home and have helped me on my motherhood journey.
I love Ellie! She makes this podcast so fun and relatable that sometimes I find myself taking for granted the incredible amount of HARD WORK and Mama sweat she puts into every episode. Brilliant, vulnerable, and inspiring, I find navigating these often challenging waters of parenting a little bit easier with Ellie & her amazing guests along for the ride!
I love that Ellie brings in such a mix of experts to dive in and learn how we can be a little more mindful of how we parent. She is so realistic and focuses on getting to a place of how to practically use these great methods and information in everyday life.
Love love love this parenting podcast. Honest and hopeful...a must listen!
Atomic moms is a really well rounded well thought out mothering/parenting podcast. Its entertaining, supportive, inspiring and heart opening. Highly recommend especially to new moms.
Love listening to this podcasts. Sometimes a little out there (for me) but so many episodes that I can rate to! Especially live the episode and follow up episode related to the journey/story of motherhood. So good and really relatable.
This podcast has provided what I needed to hear at just the right moment & even some things I didnât want to hear but needed to. A must for any primary parent!
I am a parenting podcast/books geek. I subscribe to many podcasts but they never âhit the spotâ. This one, to a mom, is like cuddling up with a box of exquisite chocolates, a glass of wine, and a long article in the New York Times Sunday magazine... Ellie interviews best selling authors (who are super stars in their category). Even though I consider myself a very modern parent (a baby-wearing-breastfeeding-cosleeping mom who also has to manage photo shoots with celebrities like Beyonce, Lady Gaga etc). I learned so so much from these interviews. Her podcast really formed me as a young mother (of a 3 year old now) and supported and inspired me all this time. Not to mention that Ellie is a hilarious and beautifully vulnerable and open interviewer. I also love her occasional episodes with her husband (who is also hilarious and eloquent: I get a rare glimpse into a fatherâs mind). Love!
This is a great place to find new authors and to dig deep into what it means to be a good (enough) parent. Itâs a support group you can attend on your own schedule. The host is on a perpetual quest to become a better person, to understand more and to connect with her audience authentically. If youâre feeling lonely, listen up, you have a friend in Ellie.
I love Atomic Moms! Rather than the lecture-y tone that some podcasts have, this gives you the feeling that you're in the room with Ellie and her guest participating in a wonderfully encouraging and educational mom talk! Her guests are so varied and helpful, there's definitely something for every mother. Ellie interviews beautifully, choosing questions that I'm eager to eager to hear the answers you and enraging her guest and the listener in the best of ways.
Mommas! Ellie is as authentic as they come. She keeps things real, and works very hard to support Moms of all types, no matter what parenting type they subscribe to. The content of Atomic Moms has made me a better mother and helped me confront several of my own demons around parenting and life. If there is one podcast you listen to, it should be Atomic Moms!
This podcast helps me survive my work days without my baby! A must for all new moms.
This podcast is exactly what I needed as I felt clueless on how to raise and just be with my first born. Im hopeful and excited about motherhood thanks to podcasts like this! Most importantly I feel like i am not wasting my time as most of her podcasts are research based and she has amazing guests. Thank you for being real and addressing things that so many mothers have struggled with. Wish this was an option in college as an elective class for people who were interested in parenthood, etc.
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. Iâve 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 canât thank you enough but I can assure you Iâll keep sharing your voice to all the mamas I know. Blessings to you and your family.
Real mom talk!
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.
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 donât 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!
No judgement, raw and real. Ellie makes me laugh every single episode because sheâs so relatable. I love learning and commiserating. Wish we could be friends in real life! Xoxo
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 âmakeâ podcasts. I have friends who podcast about health, comic books, parenting, etc. ANYONE can âmakeâ 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.
It has been a real pleasure to listen to this podcast on my way to work... so much that I sometimes even stay in my car to finish an episode before heading out! It's funny, helpful, informative and entertaining! Definitely recommend it!
I only recently found about the podcast world, and I lucked out and found Ellie Knaus with Atomic Momâs. She talks from her heart, always honest and thatâs what is so relatable and enjoyable to listen to. Topics are on point & I canât thank Ellie enough for giving me an hour once a week to spend with her!
Been enjoying this podcast from Week 9â33âand will continue to as this babe enters the world and becomes a fully-functioning, fully-tantruming lil human! Other mama podcasts Iâve 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 Atomic Mom podcast for keeping things REAL for moms! The guests and topics covered are essential to my life and makes me feel apart of the bigger Mom tribe!
What a wonderful podcast! It really gets moms thinking and has been very eye opening and educational! I am recommending to all my mama friends!
Got referred this podcast by a fellow mommy friend and itâs the first podcast where I actually yelled, âmmmhmmm, yea thatâs right, I totally feel ya girl!â So great to have this platform for me to listen and be a part of and not feel alone. Thank you
If you are a mom then this podcast is for you! Ellie gives voice to all the thoughts concerns and feelings we have as moms with a funny, sweet, honest, sincere, and heartfelt point of view. Ellie reminds us that in the complex, messy, exhausting, complicated, frustrating, guilt ridden moments motherhood is also this amazing beautiful, awesome, rewarding, job and that we arenât alone in it all! Like us she is on the search for best tips, practices, and helpful advice. Ellie graciously shares with us each week from the heart unfiltered and honest. She is an instant best friend and a hug for your inner mom! Tune in and become an Atomic mom! Thank you Ellie for finding your goodness and living your greatness and sharing with us all!!-Katiesuenason
I love this podcast. As a new mom, Iâm still working on finding my mom group of friends. Iâm so happy that I found this podcast in the mean time. Ellie is a great host, who asks great questions of her guests. She is energetic, fun, open and honest so that itâs like youâre listening to a friend. Ellie, thank you for being my mom group from afar.
Thank you for creating such an informative, entertaining, and positive podcast! Iâm an LCSW and Certified Lactation Consultant and I work with new moms; I absolutely love you and your guests and Iâve found myself referring back to episodes to inform my work. Congratulations on the birth of your second sweet girl and please keep up the great work! :) ð¤
I have binge-listened everyday this week and have shared a few podcasts with friends!
Great resources for first time mamas
I love this podcast! Ellis is inspiring, down to earth, sweet, and hilarious... and she is a great interviewer. I found this podcast when my daughter was 4 months old and I'm so glad I did! I always feel inspired and like I've had a chat with a bff after I'm done listening.
I recently discovered Atomic Mom's and can't stop listening! This parenting podcast is so refreshing. I also can't seem to stop telling all my mama friends to listen too! Keep up the awesome job, Ellie! You are honest, funny, relatable, and totally "Switzerland" in the never ending mommy-wars.
Fabulous. I love listening to your podcast to get through my work day.
Thanks for such an honest awesome podcast
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.
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
Educational, funny & super inspiring content! I'm excited to be able to listen to this on road trips & learn so much. Thanks Ellie
With a smoothing voice and great interviews. Atomic moms is just what I need as a first time worried mother. Even now that my kid isn't a baby anymore I can enjoy the great stories and feel like I'm not alone in my mommy journey.
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've been listening to Atomic Moms for a while now. It is definitely a highlight of my week. This podcast is charming and informative. It makes me smile!!! And, it makes me think!!! Thank you Ellie for a little joy each Tuesday!!!
I just got started on listening to podcasts and I'm the first time mom of a 1 year old... I looked for some resources to help me on this journey and came across with Atomic Moms. I'm loving it!
I have learned so much from this podcast! Totally changed my outlook on parenting. Thank you from me and my son ð
