ASAP stop what you are doing to listen- AMAZING!
Every parent needs to stop what they are doing to listen to this podcast! It’s got everything you need: hilarious humor, genuine encouragement, and relevant parenting research delivered in an approachable down to earth way. I love these ladies so much I can’t get enough of their show! I regularly share episode after episode with my friends and they spark some of the riches conversations! I can’t get enough!

Encouraging, relatable content
I recently discovered this podcast and have added it to my weekly must-listens. Margaret and Amy are very relatable and encouraging and have so many snippets of great advice like, “operate from a place of maximum generosity”. They are funny and sarcastic and I really enjoy their perspectives.

Thank you!
As a newish mom in a new town, I hadn’t yet found my tribe when the pandemic hit. I am so grateful for the wisdom and humor I’ve found in this podcast. I’m always left with the sense that I’m doing a good job and my kids are going to be just fine. Thank you Margaret and Amy!

One of my favs!
This is one of my favorite podcasts. I listen first thing each Wednesday. I love Margaret and Amy’s humor, balanced takes, and of course ample research. While they are different personalities I find them both relatable and always learn something new or just have a great time listening.

Love this podcast
You get a lot with every listen-laughs, facts, and feels. I have kept up every week during quarantine and now get a lot of their inside jokes too. The two hosts have different but complementary life and parenting styles which means they can cover a lot of ground, but they still bring in experts and guest speakers to speak on different subjects. The accompanying Facebook group and Youtube videos have also been an awesome perk.

Partners in this Mess
I cannot love this show more. Amy and Margaret are like 2 friends who are with me in the madness that is parenting. It’s entertaining, truly informative and above all, a nice reminder that we are all really in this together. Listening to them on a twice weekly basis has improved my pandemic experience about a billion fold. To all the moms out there (and others too), please download this show immediately. Have the ladies keep you company on a walk, a commute or while folding laundry or cleaning toilets.

Funny Witty Sanity Saving!
Just what my earholes need after a day of listening to a toddler screaming. Not to mention, a morale boost and great company while working solo at my desk!

I often laugh out loud when I listen
This podcast is funny, smart and relevant to all stages of parenting. I look forward to all the episodes!

Fun and helpful
I wasn’t an instant fan of this podcast, but I’d like to think that makes my loyalty to it even more meaningful. 😄 Their Facebook group is probably the most supportive parenting group I’ve ever been part of, and they draw heavily from the group for podcast material, which makes listening even more fun.

Self care in the form of a podcast

Great Podcast!!
I just found you yesterday and I’m completely hooked. Ur show helps me in so many ways. Mostly to know I’m not alone & it’s not just me that’s having a hard time with this rollercoaster ride called motherhood. Thank You!!

I recently started listening and your podcast is so great! Talk about relatability and feeling like other people understand how marriage, parenting and life in general is just not a fairy tale, but we can get through it together! Thank you for sharing all you do and not being a judgy judgerson!

The best parenting podcast!
Amy and Margaret are delightful, and their podcast is always informative. I have twin toddlers, and I really appreciate Amy and Margaret’s “it gets better” message to parents of kids under 5. They are so encouraging. If you’re a parent, you should listen!!

Great podcast!
I’d skip the most recent episode on etiquette but other than that one, I enjoy this podcast. (The anecdote one host told about her kids sitting still and quiet at a long funeral simply because she told them to was hard to listen to as a parent of a nuerodivergent kid. I appreciate the other host keeping it real.)

My favorite parenting podcast!
Smart and funny, and the content I'm most likely to tell all my parent friends about all the time.

My favorite podcast!!
They are so funny but also give such great tips and advice! I’ve only listening for a year and there is tons of older great content to catch up on. I tell all my mom friends to listen!

A Highlight of My Week
I always look forward to listening to these two every week. They give realistic advice while giving me a laugh. I highly recommend listening to this podcast if you are a parent!

Absolute gold of a podcast.
I look forward to these episodes weekly! I cannot get enough. I just laugh out loud at Meg because she brings so much raw “realness” and I love Amy’s tips and practical nature as well as all her research. Thanks for being a light in these dark times. Laughter is truly the best medicine. It’s nice to know we aren’t momming all alone.

HILARIOUS!!!
I love this podcast so much! I’ve been binge listening to old episodes for weeks - and I never get tired of it! I have an Amy personality- and so I love her research and advice. And Meg makes me laugh so so hard! They’re both just awesomely funny and have great chemistry. And the topics are spot on and super relevant to my life as a mom of four (ages 6-12). I hope this podcast never ends. Favorite podcast of all time!!! 👍👍

Mommy’s escape

Refreshing and funny podcast about motherhood
I have found this podcast to be so wise, honest and hilarious and listening to these wise, funny women has made me a better mother! I wish I knew more mothers like them in real life. I like how they are different from each other and I could see myself being friends with both! I also like that I can listen to this with my kids around although it’s really meant for moms and not kids. My 9 year old son has laughed hard at a lot of their episodes!

My kind of mommas!
So, even though Amy and Margaret are fairly different from one another, I can weirdly completely relate to both of them! Their banter is amazing, and Amy’s diligent research paired with Margaret’s “this is probably fine” sense of adventure is a hilarious win all around. I especially love that I can 100% relate to all the Oldilocks references and I just feel so seen!

Very funny and relatable podcast.

LOVE THIS SHOW!
Oh my goodness, I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is one of my favorites. I LOVE Amy and Margaret’s humor and practical advice for parenting, while keeping appropriate perspective. I have learned so much and it has truly changed how I parent, plus I literally laugh out loud every episode. I got my mom and twin sister hooked and we often share “what fresh hell-isms”. Such a good show!

Best podcast ever!
Margaret and Amy are my best friends, even if they don’t realize it. I think we live in the same home, possibly inside the same brain. The first episode I ever listened to was the one about those mythical mom tribes, and it was SO nice to hear them normalizing the struggle to get “in” with a mom group. I love these guys!
zotrie
Hilarious podcast with great information too
Finally a rational podcast about parenting that doesn’t take everything so seriously! I look forward to it every week and often laugh out loud while I’m listening.

A reprieve from the slog
Thank you ladies for your hard work on this show. I look forward to it every week!

helpful and entertaining
late to the podcast (starting 3 yrs in) - but almost caught up :) this duo and the show format are awesome... humor, experience, interviews, and advice related to parenting - WFH hits the sweetspot for parenting podcast for me, having tried three other ones so far... and it's the only show where i like listenting to some of the commercials...

Not a Parent
It may seem strange for someone who isn’t a parent to listen to this podcast, but I do it any! I am a Kindergarten teacher, and listening to these wonderful lady’s has given me so much perspective. I feel like I have more appreciation for how busy a Mom can be, and how things can look from their perspective. I love this podcast!

Saving my life right now

Best Momcast ever
I found this podcast while I was pregnant in 2019 and have been binging as much as I can ever since. These 2 are relatable, funny, don’t take themselves too seriously and give great practical tips. I listen daily!
jnewchurch
Y’all are the best!
I’ve tried many parenting podcasts and yours is hands down the best. You have a great banter and balance. I appreciate the variety of topics and the tempo of each show is consistent. I look forward to you two sharing “research and screes” each week!😁

Makes My Wednesday
I just happened upon WFH about a month ago while searching for “mom podcasts”. I absolutely love the podcast and have been telling all my friends about it. I’m currently mid binge in all the episodes andI find listening to it therapeutic-I laugh a lot while I listen to it. AND I usually take a little pearl or two away with me to reflect on. Thanks Margaret and Amy. Keep up the good work ❤️

Love it!
I look forward to listening every week and recommend it to all my friends. So great to have a parenting podcast that is equally entertaining as it is informative. Margaret and Amy approach both the tough and mundane aspects of parenting in a non-judgmental way.

I feel SEEN
I often turn these ladies on when I’m attempting to get through those tough parenting moments and it ALWAYS helps, so much more so than taking to the internet and feeling shamed by google search responses. I tend to feel like I’m in a bubble when my kids are “not giving me a hard time, but having a hard time” and Amy and Margaret let me know that yes, my kids may be horrible monsters, but everyone else’s kids are horrible monsters too, and there are even ways to deal with that. There’s no better way to get through tough times than with a little humor, which they bring to the table along with a boatload of practical advice and ahas. Give it a listen if you feel like you need some smart, down to earth advice for whatever the hell is going on with your kids.

Just listened for the first time and I loved it!!! So many relatable topics and I felt more at peace hearing people talk about the things I was feeling!! It’s lighthearted and refreshing to know we’re not alone in the crazy life of motherhood!!

I really awesome podcast for Parents
As a mom it was really refreshing to hear more moms discuss all the hot topics of motherhood but in a comedic way! The host are really different but that is what makes it great!
