Podcast: Mojo Mom with Political Moms Cooper Munroe & Emily McKhann

Okay, I've found my way through the maze of the new Skype technology I needed to keep the podcast going. I think in the long run it will work better than ever.

If I sound stressed out during the segment with Cooper & Emily, it's because there were a million things going on at once, including yesterday's news-making, violent, tornado-producing storm raging overhead.

I am glad we were able to get the episode completed. Cooper & Emily and co-host Sheryl all graciously came back to re-do their segments. Cooper and Emily are terrific guests and I know we'll be hearing more from them in the future. Here's the episode description--just check out all the amazing things these dynamic Moms are involved in:

Amy and Sheryl are back with their reflections on the Election Night results. They'll contine to follow politics on the road to the 2008 Presidential race. What do recent results mean for mothers? Amy is joined by our guest pundits Cooper Munroe and Emily McKhann. The dynamic women are actively invovled in advocating for mothers' rights. They have worked with MomsRising.org to push for Pennsylvania state legislation that would finally outlaw job discrimination against mothers. This discrimination is currently legal in Pennsylvania and 27 other states.

Cooper and Emily's work extends in many directions. You can read their Been There Blog, learn about the Been There Clearinghouse to help Hurricane Katrina survivors, and learn more about moms and politics at MomsRising.org. Next year these founding mothers will be kicking off a new project, a web portal called The Motherhood. Stop by The Motherhood now and you can sign up to receive email updates about the site launch.
