Advice from Mom is a podcast and cross-generational effort to answer life's big questions. Featured as “new and noteworthy” on iTunes and included on NPR's The Big Listen, Advice from Mom is an advice-column show hosted by Rebecca Garza-Bortman featuring listener letters and the advice and stories of her mother, Elizabeth Skibinski-Bortman, PhD. Affectionately known on the show as “Momma B”, Dr. Bortman is a small-town family therapist “on a one-woman mission to mother a mentally healthy world.”
Each episode, this mother-daughter duo explores questions sent in by their listeners with the help of a series of guest experts. They have recorded advice with actress & SNL alum, Michaela Watkins; artist and graphic journalist, Wendy MacNaughton; and NPR's The Kitchen Sisters, as well as crisis counselors, authors, and wise creative professionals of all sorts.
This podcast is founded on the belief that we need our mothers like we never have before. Not just our own mothers, but the mothers of the world. Anyone can submit a question at www.advicefrom.mom/request.
