Meet the Fall LA Cast(s)

ExMo3 jpg

There were so many submissions that very quickly on Thursday I called the Downtown Independent and asked if Expressing Motherhood could do another show with a whole different cast on November 4th. They said yes and so there will be two different Los Angeles casts of Expressing Motherhood this Fall.

There will be a show that takes place in September, with a two night run. Shows being Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:30PM and Sunday, September 27th at 6:30PM.

The second run, with a whole new cast, will be one night only in November. November 4th, a Wednesday.

Tickets for both shows will go on sale this week. They will go fast!

Thank you to all who submitted. LA you were on fire.

Submissions and a New Podcast Episode: Loretta Fox

Thank you to all who submitted for the September Expressing Motherhood show in Los Angeles. The cast will be announced soon.

I felt pretty raw after going through the submissions yesterday. I went and sat in my messy playroom and was just comforted by my kids’ toys and wished I could cast a spell to keep them this age forever. Your stories broke and re-shaped my heart, as they always do.

I just interviewed LA mom and actress Loretta Fox.

Podcast: Expressing Motherhood Talks To Elizabeth Soutter

Last night in my hot closet I talked to Boston mom Elizabeth Soutter for the Expressing Motherhood podcast.

We talked about:

  • Why she shut down her popular blog in 2011.
  • How she was blogging about motherhood, before Dooce.
  • Why she doesn’t trust a lot of what bloggers are writing anymore due to so much sponsored content.
  • Paying for an office outside of the home.

Elizabeth has been in Expressing Motherhood twice, once in the Boston 2010 show and then the second time in Chicago in 2013.

I was fortunate enough to meet Jillian Lauren at Mom2Summit last month and chatted with her on the new Expressing Motherhood podcast. Please tune in around 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Had some technical difficulties but the interview was interesting. Jillian has a wonderful new memoir out, “Everything You Ever Wanted.” We talked about tantrums in public spaces, when and how often she writes, friendships and more. Listen here.

This is a video we shot back in 2009 when we were aiming to take ExMo to Des Moines in 2010. Thankfully we changed plans as I would have had to fly with a 6 week old colicky baby (no bleeping way.)

 

Tomorrow I’ll be talking to LA mom/writer Jillian Lauren on the ExMo podcast.
