Becoming a Mother: From Party to Parent

Kristen Chase, host of Motherhood Uncensored welcomes author Rebecca Woolf to BlogTalkRadio for a discussion of her new memoir.

RockabyeMotherhood Uncensored hosts Becoming a Mother: From Party to Parent tonight at 9pm ET (click to listen), featuring author Rebecca Woolf and her new memoir “Rockabye: From Wild to Child.”

Rebecca makes the transition from life as an odd-job doing commitment-phobic, chain-smoking, irresponsible party-girl to life as a work-at-home mother with a different kind of social life. Throughout, Rebecca doesn’t relinquish the token qualities of her free-spirited, pre-baby self; rebelling against both the “soccer mom,” and “young mother” stereotypes, challenging herself to grow up without outgrowing her dreams, and most importantly embracing motherhood without a map.

Sound like you or someone you know? Join Kristen and Rebecca tonight for a lively chat about motherhood, uncensored.

As a side note, Kristen was recently featured and interviewed on The Today Show. Congrats on that achievement, Kristen.

Puppy Chow is Better Than Prozac – Find Out Why

Bruce Goldstein’s poignant memoir of how a dog really becomes man’s best friend comes to life tonight on BlogTalkRadio.

Puppy Chow Tonight at 7pm ET (click to listen), Your Mental Health welcomes Bruce Goldstein author of “Puppy Chow is Better Than Prozac,” for an exclusive in-depth look at the man and the story. As one review states:

“From the opening sentence…to the last…readers will appreciate how one seemingly insignificant four-legged creature made a life-altering difference to a young, suicidally depressed man. Four paws up…Joining the recent wave of memoirs about dogs and their owners, Goldstein’s book differs in that it focuses on the ability of canines to touch our souls and provide unconditional love and support during times of extreme psychological stress.”

Goldstein and Jackie will discuss the book and the lessons learned. Join them tonight.
