Manage episode 244550552 series 57074
#232 - Actress Malin Akerman (Watchmen, Couples Retreat, Billions) and Dr. Marika Lindholm (ESME.com founder) share their personal experiences as single mothers and ways in which we can support the 15 million single parent caregivers in America, including, but not limited to military moms, single moms, divorced moms, and widowed moms.
Our first guest Malin Akerman speaks to the challenges, lessons, and wins during her first year of motherhood that coincided with her divorce and shares the way she introduced co-parenting to the equation with her husband Jack Donnelly, whom she married last year.
And sociologist Dr. Marika Lindholm shares her mission behind ESME.com "Empowering Solo Moms Everywhere". In this wide-ranging conversation, we also discuss our own upbringings with single mothers and the new anthology Dr. Lindholm co-edited We Got This: Solo Mom Stories of Grit, Heart, and Humor, including essays by Anne Lamott, Amy Poehler, and 75 solo mothers.
