Super Mamas

Sisters Paulina and Bricia Lopez bring sincerity, humor and compassion to their Super Mamas podcast (and accompanying blog). As they explain in their description, the hourlong podcast is "a judgment-free space where new, expecting and experienced mothers can come together to learn from one another, be inspired by each other and bond over their similar upbringings and cultural background." In one of the latest episodes, Paulina opens up about her family's battle with Covid, and shares how friends, families and followers all helped them fight and recover from the virus. 

And for any LA foodies out there, it's worth noting that the sisters other venture is the family-run Guelaguetza, which now sells its famous mole and signature Michelada mix online.

With Whit

Remember LC's pal from The Hills, Whitney Port? The LA native reality TV vet is a now a "safer-at-home" mom (thanks to the city's latest orders). She brings the same genuineness she displayed on The Hills to her podcast, and is often joined by her husband Timmy. Recent episodes have focused on Port's decision to send her son to a Montessori school, setting boundaries on social media and empowering women to be ambitious (in a conversation with Meena Harris, no less!).

Motherhood in Hollywood

As the name suggests, this podcast from actress and comedian Heather Brooker covers all things parenting and entertainment, or from "red carpets to diaper rash," per Brooker's description. Through her interviews with industry insiders, she offers practical tips for writers and actors, along with advice (and just plain commiseration) on juggling work and mom life. Added bonus? Brooker and her husband regularly share their TV show recommendations for all your binge viewing needs.
