How EarBuds Podcast Collective works:

Each week, a theme is chosen by one of our curators. That curator finds 5 podcast episodes (from anywhere!) to go along with that theme. Listen to these podcasts by clicking on the links above, through the RadioPublic app, or you can find (most of) them on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast…)

PODCAST CURATOR’S NAME: Julie Neale, host of the Mother’s Quest podcast

WHY THIS THEME?: As a mother, living an EPIC life has become a guiding framework for me to become the author of my own story and inspire my children by my example.  It’s also an acronym mnemonic for the guideposts that help us live that life when we’re raising our children. Listen to these episodes from other mothers on a quest, one for each guidepost, to kick off an EPIC life for you in 2018!

SHAMELESS PROMO: On my quest to live an EPIC life, I’m learning how to step into more responsibility toward anti-racism and model this for my children. I recorded three powerful conversations on this topic for the Women Podcasters in Solidarity Initiative. You can access my conversations with human rights attorney Nicole Lee, Rad Women author Kate Schatz, and Mothers Against Police Brutality Co-Founder Sara Mokuria here.

CROWDSOURCING QUESTION: I’d love to curate more lists like these for mothers and include conversations that have inspired you. Send me your favorite podcast episodes and the EPIC Guidepost it relates to at julie@mothersquest.com.
