Listen Up: Angela Garbes on Doing Things Like a Mother
This week, we got to break it down with Angela Garbes, a total badass and the author of Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy, the only parenting book Claire insisted her husband read immediately. But having or expecting a kid is hardly a prerequisite: Angela’s work and POV are totally fascinating for anyone who was born on this planet.

Read Angela’s article about breast milk, which went totally viral for good reason, and then scoop up her book!
After you’re blown away by her brilliant mind here, listen to her interview on the almost-as-famous show Fresh Air.
Another incredible book that’s applicable to everyone: Being Mortal by Atul Gawande.
