Description

Hosted by Jordana Horn and Shannon Sarna. Call Your Mother takes on the sometimes happy, sometimes trying mess of parenting while Jewish. With equal doses of humor and candor, journalists Horn and Sarna (with eight kids between them) talk with comedians, writers, chefs, and other parents about everything from addiction to flatulence to anti-Semitism and ageism. Nothing's sacred. Nothing's taboo. For insight and perspective on the trials and rewards of being a parent today, tune in to Call Your Mother.

Episode Date
Good as Gold

Anti-Semitism, ageism, complaints that she's mocking her late mother — nothing's too precious for comedian Judy Gold. She joins Call Your Mother to discuss coming out, being disinherited, the legacy of Joan Rivers and so much more. Then, Jordana's mother offers her own five cents on what sets Jewish mothers apart.

Addicted
34:23

Jen Simon invited herself to people's houses for a single reason: to raid their cabinets for opioids. A middle-class suburban Jewish mom, she didn’t fit the addict stereotype, and kept her dependency a secret from friends and family. Jen talks candidly with the Call Your Mother team about coming clean and getting clean.

Macho, Macho Mama

Celebrity chef Einat Admony, whose restaurants include Balaboosta and Taim, dishes (see what we did there?) about morning orgasms, likens kids to farts (“You just like your own”), and opines about guilt. Plus, Jordana describes the ongoing battle with her “feral child” about actually stopping what she’s doing in order to pee.
