Perfect balance of humor, practical advice and stories that give solidarity in the ups and downs of parenting. Been listening for years and love Amy & Margaret! Highly recommend!
I love to listen to this podcast. They are so hilarious and very helpful with parenting information. I look forward to every episode. I highly recommend this podcast!
I couldn’t be happier I found this podcast. I’m a little bit Amy and a little bit Margaret, and I just love the wise and hilarious banter these ladies offer to me as a SAHM. I go from laughing hysterically at their personal anecdotes, to sobbing at times when I feel deeply validated, and learning something EVERY time I tune in. I truly believe listening to this podcast has improved my mental health, and has allowed me to give myself much more grace as a mom. I look forward to and delight in each new episode. Thank you so much, and please keep up the excellent work!
I never miss an episode! Amy and Margaret are so honest about motherhood and bring not only humor, but really greasy advice. I really look forward to each episode!
I’ve been listening Amy and Margaret for years now. I get so much from every episode During the pandemic they’ve been one of my sources of happiness. :) thank you ladies.
I love this parenting podcast! There is always lots of helpful information while making me laugh and not take things too seriously.
I listen to your podcast everyday and I love every episode! I work full time and have a one year old daughter. I had my daughter right as the pandemic lock down started and have never felt so alone. This podcast has really helped me to not feel alone on my journey as a mother.
Since I discovered this podcast, I don’t think there has been one episode that I couldn’t find something to relate to- and their humor reminds me to take a step back and laugh at the absurdity of motherhood.
I look forward to this podcast every week— funny, relatable and I always learn something. Love these ladies!
I LOVE this podcast!! I subscribe to a lot of parenting among other podcasts and this is definitely my favorite. It is super funny, down to earth, and very helpful to me as a mother. So entertaining and enjoyable!
Love how Amy and Margaret give motherhood an comedic voice, but honestly give practical and balanced advice. It’s a must listen!
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 a nice constant- it feels like listening to good friends! (Also, thank you for making it clean so that I never have to worry about inappropriate language) I look forward to you two sharing “research and screes” each week!😁
I am SOOOO glad I found this podcast. Margaret and Amy are so real and relatable. I feel like I am sitting and chatting with a few friends when I listen to this podcast. They just tell it how it is. Best podcast ever, do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast.
What I love about you ladies is that you not only are honest and authentic about your lives (and frequently hilarity ensures) but you are insightful and lead such interesting conversations with amazing guests. Even as a mother of a 21 year old I feel like I’m still able to learn stuff from your podcast!
Seriously amazing! Margaret and Amy are such a good combo and balance each other so well. They’re hilarious and relatable. They’re exactly what every mom needs. Do yourself a favor and listen.
I really enjoy listening to a Margaret and Amy’s perspectives. I like that they frequently, but don’t always agree with each other. This is a fun, easy going podcast, but it’s also well researched and I always pick up a good tip.
I’m a stay at home mom and your podcast has gotten me through all the chores and housework I usually hate and avoid for as long as possible. I have three kiddos. Ages are 15, 8, and 3. Amongst them we’ve got an IEP, a 504b plan, depression, anxiety, reading difficulties, and even advanced reading and math. One attends in person school full time, one is doing online school, and the 3 year old is ALWAYS at home with me. your podcast talks about it all. All the “ages and stages” as you say. Thank you for all the great content and info and of course the always hilarious jokes and skits. I look forward to hearing more.
This is probably my favorite podcast. It’s funny but also has a lot of great information for parents. Margaret and Amy make a great team and are so enjoyable to listen to.
I love these ladies. They go with me on runs, walks, and drives. I look forward to each new episode and so wish they came more often. I have listened to every single episodes, sometimes twice, and it helps feel less lonely when your only company is a tiny fat dictator (aka adorable toddler)!
Thank you for making me feel less crazy during this pandemic winter in Massachusetts! Love your show, always makes me laugh out loud when I’m on a run (or pretending to do the dishes and listening to your podcast!)
I found this podcast when my friend recommended it to me. It was so much fun listening to Amy and Margaret’s funny perspective on being a mom! I especially love their middle skit on what I’m thinking versus what I’m doing. It cracks me up. But mostly I love the balance of info. I get good laughs and practical tips that I can use right away. Definitely one of my new favs!
I look forward to each new episode every week. I’ve never really had mom friends due to my work schedule and location (and frankly my introverted personality) but while I’m listening I feel the warmth, comfort and acceptance of a good friendship. Today’s episode (2/17/21) talked about how we all aren’t okay and that just because someone else has it harder doesn’t mean we have to be okay and let ourselves accept and speak that. I’m not an emotional person in general but I am teary as it hits me that that’s how I feel! This frog is on fire! I’m right in the middle of a rough patch and I do think it’s the reality that we are a year into this nightmare with nothing to look forward to going into goodness knows how much longer. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your podcast! It’s one of the few snippets of comfort I can always depend on.
One of the greatest mom podcasts out there. You will get something out of EVERY episode!!! I can’t wait for the next episode! 2021-02 Still loving this podcast. I have listened to every single episode! Each one includes a laugh and applicable insight!!!
Margaret and Amy keep me company as I care for my toddler. They remind me to not take myself too seriously, and their comedy bits frequently make me laugh out loud. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to hear intelligent and funny women talk about contemporary motherhood.
This is the greatest! As a mom of a toddler without a mom tribe I am so grateful to have found this podcast! They feel like my friends and always have such wonderful advice and relatable stories-always told with a sense of humor! Greatest podcast it’s absolutely my favorite! Thank you ladies for providing this for all of us moms out there!
I came across this podcast by happenstance and have told all of my friends about it bc this is THE most relatable podcast there is when it comes to parenthood! It is so fun to listen to and these gals play off of each other so well. This is one of those podcasts where you end up feeling really good after listening to it. There’s no shaming different parenting styles but rather a place we can all relate with one another and laugh through the fun or tough stuff together:)
I came across the podcast mid-pandemic and it’s been the key to my sanity! I have older kids (13 yr old twins, 16 yr old - all boys)but no fear, these ladies have me covered! Their personalities shine and they are a perfect balance of humor and education. Thanks ladies for being a bright spot every week!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 am newer listener after hearing you on another podcast. Love this podcast - informative and entertaining!!
These ladies are my spirit animals.
This podcast is funny, smart and relevant to all stages of parenting. I look forward to all the episodes!
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.
Hilarious, heartwarming, informative, and relatable. Thank you Margaret and Ann for creating this space!
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!
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!!
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.)
Smart and funny, and the content I'm most likely to tell all my parent friends about all the time.
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!
I’ve been listening Amy and Margaret for years now. I get so much from every episode During the pandemic they’ve been one of my sources of happiness. :) thank you ladies.
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!
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.
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!!! 👍👍
Oh my goodness, this podcast is my favorite weekly escape ❤️. These ladies are hilarious, honest, humble, down to earth, and so positive and inclusive. If you belong to the mom club this is for you!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
Thank you ladies for your hard work on this show. I look forward to it every week!
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...
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!
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!
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!😁
You feel like you’re with friends while listening to this podcast!! It’s definitely my favorite thing to listen to!! Thanks Margaret and Amy! I’d be lost without you guys!
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 ❤️
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 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!!
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!
One of the greatest mom podcasts out there. You will get something out of EVERY episode!!! I can’t wait for the next episode!
So funny and helpful! It seems like you’re listening to friends. Love these ladies! Keep up the fabulous work!
Always makes me laugh and I typically feel like I come away with some tactical parenting strategies. Thanks and thanks!
I love this show!! It’s relatable and I learn so much every time. It’s one of my favorite shows. But. Margaret, please stop saying “like” as a verbal tic! It’s extremely distracting and sometimes I want to finish an episode but seriously can’t because I feel like a pre-teen is verbally delivering a woman’s wisdom. It’s so hard to listen to! Five stars for content, ideas, conversation. One star for not articulating like a grown-up.
I love the topics and all the conversations! Seriously makes me feel like I’m having a conversation with my girlfriends!! Please keep them coming!! I’m a hot mess mom with three that are five and under so I feel I get all of the right now shenanigans while you guys help me to see that the shenanigans will keep coming lol ages and stages 🤣❤️🤣❤️
I love love love this podcast. The hosts M and A are the perfect mix of thoughtful, realistic and hysterical.
I can’t remember how I stumbled upon What Fresh Hell, but it was a turning point in my life! All the things you question as a mother, Margaret and Amy answer in a way that is funny, completely honest, and makes me feel that I might not be insane after all. These two are my people. My dream is to have coffee in NYC with Margaret and Amy, discussing the perils of motherhood, until then, I cook, clean, mother, and do all the things with this podcast in my ear.❤️👍🏻⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I LOVE this podcast, it’s very funny and relatable. I’m in my mid-40’s with a 2 year old daughter & really relate to the hosts. I have gotten so much great advice from this podcast, it’s informative but in a “real” way if that makes sense.
Got a new born, toddler, tween, teen no matter the age of your child(ren) you’ll love this podcast. The topics, the humor, the research and great hosts mixes for a must subscribe! Grateful for you ladies!
I have approximately an hour and 10 minute commute from Temecula CA to San Diego. I discovered the WFH podcast about a month ago and have been binge listening ever since. I have literally listened to every episode, listening to some more than once. I actually feel like I have become a better parent as a result of this new addiction. Here is what I like about the podcast. I truly appreciate how Amy and Margaret are authentic as they discuss the topic at hand. As they share research and advice they allow themselves to be vulnerable discussing the challenges they face with their children. Many times as I listen, one of them will talk about something that happened at home and I will think to myself, “Wow, it is not just my son who does this.” or “Ok, I’m not the only parent who...” The topics are interesting and relevant. I also appreciate how they integrate research into the discussion (Thank you Amy). These ladies are funny, intelligent and real. I totally recommend this podcast.
Love listening to these ladies. Funny and practical with a great mix of “real” as well as expert advice.
This podcast is both entertaining and informative. I always laugh out loud several times during each episode. Thank you for helping me laugh my way through motherhood!
This is my favorite podcast. I plan my week to do all of my worst chores and errands on Wednesday so I can listen to these gals and make it better. They’re both so smart but not snobby. They joke about motherhood, but are great moms. Great, loving moms. They are real about their relationships, but love their husbands and work hard at their marriages. A great mix of irreverent, feminist and also kind of old-fashioned. And good real advice.
This is an awesome show! I always get a laugh out of these ladies (and often some great advice too!)
This is my favorite podcast! Not only do I feel like I learn something each time I listen, I find myself laughing throughout and nodding my head because it’s just so relatable.
This is my absolute favorite parenting podcast. Amy and Margaret feel like your mom friends who just happen to be super knowledgeable and funny.
