Image placeholder title

We’re launching the Today’s Mama Podcast! A parenting podcast featuring our funny, curious, and thoughtful founder, Rachael Herrscher, focused on talking about how we care for the things we care about the most. Parenting advice, tips, and inspiration from smart parents, for smart parents. Our first guest is Angela Santomero, Creator of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Blue’s Clues, and Author of Preschool Clues. We’re discussing parenting (how preschoolers and teens are basically the same) and how to choose media and set boundaries. Listen wherever you find your favorite podcasts—take us with you this summer on your road trip, to the beach, or on your daily walk. We want to be best friends. For reals.
