The Disney Princess Craze | Humorist Devorah Blachor
#150: What's a feminist mom to do? In our 150th podcast, humorist Devorah Blachor lifts the veil on all things glittery and pink as we find out why our daughters are more princess-obsessed than ever. We talk about her brand new book THE FEMINIST'S GUIDE TO RAISING A LITTLE PRINCESS: HOW TO RAISE A GIRL WHO’S AUTHENTIC, JOYFUL, AND FEARLESS–EVEN IF SHE REFUSES TO WEAR ANYTHING BUT A PINK TUTU (TarcherPerigree). And, of course, because you're listening to Atomic Moms, we also speak candidly about depression, being your children's ally, and the time Sabrina tried to open mouth kiss me because she saw Prince Eric and Ariel do it in the book. xx Ellie Knaus, host
