Totally Laime is about asking the most important people in comedy the least important questions, Totally Married chronicles Elizabeth and her husband Andy's adventures in marriage (plus unqualified advice to listener questions!) and Totally Mommy is an honest discussion about Motherhood between newly-mommied Elizabeth and her talented parent friends. Enjoy!
E and A discuss the recent bad news regarding their car as well as their productive day of getting ready for baby – Birth bag! Car seat! Annnnd… Padsickles? Then they answer listener questions about feeling hurt over not being a bridesmaid, navigating a difficult relationship that is heading towards co-dependency, finding new friends/relationships wherein you can discuss your emotions freely, how to convince your husband that couples therapy isn’t only for the end, and lastly, how/when to tell potential partners that you have an STD when you are back in the dating game. Enjoy!
Happy Valentine’s Day Laimewads! Today’s awesome guest – writer and performer, MATT McCONKEY (twitter: @MattMcConkey) started us off with a bang (aka, he brought muffins) before sharing his fantastic story about tracking down his birth parents, explaining how he feels about the online/app dating game, and what turned him into a Beyonce fan after having held out for many years. Enjoy!
Crying a lot? Needing a hug? Feeling aches and pains that won’t quit? Does watching a Golden Girls marathon sort of help but it still feels like something’s… missing?
Let me recommend this thing I’ve always known about but now have a new relationship with: Chocolate. All. The. Chocolate. I’m going to guide you through the best way to let this magical cure-all help you throughout your pregnancy.
First though, you should know what this product really is. I looked up the history of chocolate and discovered that it’s been around for a long time – like thousands of years so that makes me feel like we’re all pretty safe ingesting as much of this stuff as we can with no ill side effects.

Elizabeth’s long time friend and soul sister in sensitivity & dog rescue is our co-host today! Actress, singer and doula AMY BIEDEL came on and discussed the good (getting certified in childbirth education) the bad (her son picking up her less than pride-filled mannerisms, Elizabeth’s swollen undercarriage) and the funny (her three year old being obsessed with anatomy, Elizabeth crying over a touch being the wrong kind). Then they discuss why Amy thinks one of their dog rescue foibles led to her pregnancy before giving their unqualified advice to listener questions about their thoughts on circumcision, how to navigate fertility testing, how to deal with anxiety about pregnancy weight gain, and how to manage a friendship when you are in mommy-ville and she wants you to get drunk at her wedding. Enjoy!
