After a long hiatus, Lil and Balt are back to share some format changes we’ll try out for our listeners’ pleasure and some upcoming episode topics you can look forward to downloading soon… including “natural miscarriage,” children at adult events and venues, listener submissions, interviews and more!
Episode 4: Vasectomies & Stuff
Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith & Balthazar, are back! We’re sharing more listener e-mails (moderately edited for clarity and length), one of which includes a listener-submitted parent-couple which was chosen as our Asshole(s) of the Week for their bullying behavior! After dissecting the e-mails for more reasons which might fit into Balt’s previous theory that the reasons for breeding come down to two motivations, we get personal. Balt shares some of his reproductive history, his experience with getting a vasectomy and he addresses many of the myths and misconceptions about the procedure.
Episode 3: Two Big Reasons (PLUS Extra Stuff)
Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith & Balthazar, share listener submissions from our twitter’s last call to action: “What’s the most metal thing about being childfree?” After a debate as to whether parents put more thought into a vehicle purchase or the financial obligations of parenthood, discover the lucky #entitledbreeder who earned our Asshole of the Week spot. With Listener Mail from Sarah & AndThisStillLife, we share responses from fans including how they’ve experienced bullying behavior from breeders for being childfree as well as some of our favorite tweets since the last episode and exploring the phenomenon of “lawnmower parenting”. In this episode, Balt also suggests every rationale to breed comes down to two reasons…
Episode 2: Privacy and Push Back
Join Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith and Balthazar, as they share some of the stories and responses fellow listeners have shared over the past two weeks! After reviewing some of our other favorite child-free interactions on social media since our debut episode, we’ll talk about who made our Asshole of the Week list. Balt also shares an interesting article on adult bullying and theorizes such bullying behaviors could be attributed to many breeder-populations in their interactions with those who are childfree by choice.
Meet the Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith and Balthazar, in our debut episode as we give a brief recap on when we knew the decision to be child free was right for us. Get an earful of what to expect in future episodes, hopefully to include interviews, listener mail and the evisceration of hate mail. This episode also includes the first (but not the last) examination of children and parenting in social media. Get ready to be loud & proud.
