Manic Mommies

Working moms everywhere will hear themselves in the voices of Erin and Kristin, creators and hosts of <a href="http://www.manicmommies.com" target="_blank" style="color:#c08434;"><b>Manic Mommies</b></a>, the weekly podcast for moms trying to do it all! Friends, neighbors, and communications professionals, Erin Kane and Kristin Brandt are thirty-something moms juggling careers, children, husbands, and housework...and trying not to loose their minds! Living in the same suburban Boston neighborhood, the two moms first met on a beautiful Spring day in 2004, when Kristin walked up Erin's sidewalk and simply introduced herself. After countless Saturday play dates for their toddlers, the women realized they had built an important support group for working moms. Problem was, they were the only two in it! So they started a weekly podcast about the challenges working mothers face today, and posted it to iTunes. Today, Manic Mommies is one of the most successful parenting podcasts on the Internet.
