December Podcast Roundup
It’s the holiday season, which means everyone is spending time with the people they hold near and dear—and the little ones are off from school. We’ve made a list (and checked it twice) of shows that offer sage advice and insight into being the best parent you can be this holiday season and beyond.
We know the holidays can be incredibly stressful. But don’t let the hustle and the bustle bring you down! Project Parenthood is your weekly guide to raising your kids with empathy while taking care of yourself too. Dr. Nanika Coor is a clinical psychologist and “respectful parenting” advocate. She'll help you understand toddler emotions, teach discipline, launch meaningful conversations with your children about gender and race, and re-parent yourself—all in just ten minutes a week.
Parenting Great Kids with Dr. Meg Meeker
America's Mom, Dr. Meg Meeker, the country's trusted authority on parenting, teens, and children's health, offers practical insight to help parents simplify. No wonder this long-running show has a devoted following of moms, most of whom have 2+ kids under the age of 18.
Parent Footprint with Dr. Dan
The Exactly Right network’s Parent Footprint teaches us all how to make the world a more loving, accepting, and compassionate place—one parent and one child at a time. With over 20 years experience as a psychologist, author, father, and host Dr. Dan Peters understands that the key to raising happy and aware kids is for parents to seek joy and mindfulness in their own lives.
The Sonrise Project
Some parenting obstacles require a little more nuance. An Oprah Winfrey Network offering, The SonRise Project is dedicated to helping sons and daughters lead mentally healthy lives, while providing a safe space to share and support families across the country who are dealing with mental illness and addiction issues.
Ladies & Tangents
Family by chance; co-hosts by choice. Jeri and Ciara are cousins and best friends who have spent 30 years in comedic conversations. With a hunger for understanding the world and breaking down stigmas around mental health and human rights, the two have cultivated a community for people who want to feel connected.
The holidays are also about celebrating our chosen family. Best Friends is a hilarious, intimate, chat-cast hosted by longtime best friends Nicole Byer (from the series “Nailed It!”) and Sasheer Zamata (from “Saturday Night Live”). Each week, Byer and Zamata come together and try to solve listeners’ best friend questions, and occasionally talk to other best friend duos. For those without children, this show is the ultimate guide to caring for those who matter most.
