Best Podcast for Moms

Ellie’s podcast is my saving grace during my commute. Her conversations are so relatable and engaging, and in a time of life that can feel isolating and overwhelming, it’s comforting to hear her and her wonderful guests share their candid thoughts and experiences. Her conversations with regular guests Bridget and Claire are among my very favorite episodes — never a dull moment with them! Thanks for all you do, Ellie and team!

Ellie soothes my soul!

I found Atomic Moms at the beginning of this year, and it has changed my workouts and my parenting life! Each podcast is informative and fun, I feel like I’m being extra constructive by getting to workout AND get advice and assurance about parenthood and life. Ellie’s voice is hypnotic and soothing, and also fun and bubbly. I feel like I’ve got a little virtual tribe to help through the guests she has on the show and hearing about her life and kids. You must listen!

The only podcast I listen to every week

Ellie’s voice is genuine and kind. She asks tough questions, gathers pertinent information from experts, and equips me to be the kinder and more thoughtful parent that I aim to be - while also motivating me to be kinder to myself! Did I mention this review is long overdue? I’ve listened to Ellie since my first child was a newborn and he’s now four years old! My go-to parenting podcast (and life podcast really) by a long shot! You will love, Ellie!

Beyond grateful

Ellie your topics, heartfelt openness, and commitment to thoughtfulness has been a needed companion in my parenting journey. Because of your work I continue to remember that being the best mom I can be starts with parenting my own wounds. Thank you

Great parenting tool

I wasn’t very interested to Podcasts, until my friend Margarita shared this podcast with me and it REALLY made a change in my life, and I almost believe in my children life. Parenting is for sure not easy, but it is also not impossible. Atomic Moms has helped me overcome many challenges as a mom and also as an spouse. Great topics! Thank you.

My favorite parenting podcast

Living in a resort mountain town, I sometimes feel a little detached from other moms, but listening to Atomic Moms has given me a connection to like minded moms and a lot of great info about interesting and important topics. I highly recommend it to all parents out there.

Funny, helpful, wise and kind

When I got pregnant with my son I started listening to Atomic Moms, and it’s been a regular companion to me this first year of his life. I’ve learned so much from the experts Ellie interviews and most of all it’s made me feel un-lonely. My fears and worries get shrunk when I’m laughing along and nodding my head to the stories moms share about the insanity, pain and wonder of these years. Thank you for Atomic Moms!

Thanks!

This podcast has brightened up so many laundry folding sessions and walks across my college campus! I am only 22 and don't have kids so it's nice to think about how I'll deal with challenges that come up for me years from now when I do, and the positive tone of this podcast really helps me look forward to parenting with something other than blank confusion and vague fear!!

Awesome guests and an invested host!

I started listening about a year ago and love the variety of guests featured on Atomic Moms! I often find myself reading their books after the interview and I feel like the variety of topics keeps my interest from week to week. Surprisingly, I’m a school leader without children of my own, but I’ve found resources and connections to make with families and students both at work and in my family. Thanks Ellie for being such a dynamic host and curating a network of amazing people who are also invested in being the best parents (people interacting with parents, people who live next door to parents, people who have parents, and all of the above) they can be!

Thank you Ellie!

I dont remember exactly how I stumbled upon this, but as a mom of 2 under 2 I feel like I hit the jackpot.My first podcast was “How to be a happier parent” and Ive been hooked ever since. It’s not just that Ellie is real, or the fact that she knows how to tell a story. She is that friend you call when you’ve lost hope and she picks you up. You can relate and learn so much from her. Highly recommend it to any mamas out there!
