One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa ponder the growing sensation that it feels like we work here but it doesn’t feel like we live here. “Here” meaning any state of existence where we can stop thinking about everything and everyone’s needs but our own. Oh yeah, it's one of those shows. Plus, Biz reads aloud, Theresa receives a pleasant surprise, and we talk to Elizabeth Gilbert about her new book, City of Girls, and about the impossible expectations we place on mothers.

Follow Elizabeth Gilbert on Twitter @GilbertLiz and on Instagram at Elizabeth_Gilbert_Writer. You can find a full list of her books at her website You can listen to her Maximum Fun podcast Magic Lessons wherever you download podcasts. Her new book City of Girls is out now.
