Rebooting MOMocrats Radio: Here’s MOMochat

Nov 10, 2010 by

The MOMocrats have been busy at work putting together a new project… or rather, relaunching one that was put to rest following the 2008 election: our MOMocrats Radio Show.

MOMocrats Radio 2.0 is more of a reboot than a recreation. It’s lighter… chattier… but (we hope!) just as illuminating as our first series. Plus, this one will run in a regular weekday time slot: Every Wednesday morning at 9:00 A.M. Pacific Time (12:00 for those of you on the East Coast). We’re hoping this is a time that makes sense for busy parents, like us.

Because we weren’t sure how it was going to go, we did not publicize this morning’s pilot episode — and there were plenty of glitches (mostly “technical difficulties” and inarticulate moments on my part!) However, our MOMocrat panel of Cynematic, Meghan Schuster Harvey and Melissa Schober rocked, as did our special surprise guest, Gina Cooper (founder of Netroots Nation).

We talked about everything from the impending chocolate shortage (and the environmental and fair trade issues associated with it) to new/old California Governor Jerry Brown and health care in Texas, should Governor Rick Perry make good on his threat to cease offering Medicaid to the citizens of his state.

So – vanity aside – we’ve decided to go ahead and make the pilot available to our audience, via the widget below. You can also subscribe to MOMochat as a podcast on iTunes (click on the icon on the player below).
