This podcast will have deep, meaningful conversations and build a supportive community for moms.
As for the name? Oz and Baldwin want to take back the term from the negative connotation. Typically, when the term mom brain is bandied about, it’s in the negative sense of moms being forgetful, but “it’s a very real thing that I struggle with on a daily basis. I forget what I’m saying as I’m saying it, and it’s so frustrating,” Baldwin said. In an effort to take back the term, this podcast aims to replenish your brain to help you to get smarter, be curious, and give yourself some brain candy. “Also, I love that it’s like, ‘well, what’s on the mom’s brain right now?’” Baldwin added.
The first handful of guests include designer Rebecca Minkoff, musician Sheryl Crow, and Pilates instructor Erika Bloom. Baldwin said they plan to interview celebrity moms as well as moms who aren’t famous because the most important thing to realize is, they are talking about topics parents care about. For example, Crow—who is among Oz’s favorite guests—discussed battling breast cancer, adopting her sons later in life (she was 45), and raising them as a single mother while balancing her music career.
The big thing Oz and Baldwin want listeners to take away from Mom Brain? It’s focused on moms and creating a positive connection: “We’re all looking for our community that’s going to make us feel like we belong,” Oz said." The podcast might just become the village you’ve been looking for.
