If These Ovaries Could Talk is a podcast where two lesbians chat about making babies and non-traditional families. Jaimie and Robin humorously go in-depth with weekly guests about their hopes, fears, and setbacks. The mission is to normalize, elevate and celebrate non-traditional families, while confirming that we’re just like other parents, trying not to yell at our kids when they still haven’t put their shoes on and we’re 25 minutes late for school. The end result is a compelling podcast that explores the age-old question: what’s it like to live as an LGBTQ family in a world built for the straights?
