Motherhood Village Mama knows best podcast

It truly takes a village to raise a child, and the more informed we are; the better decisions we can make that will positively affect us, and help to shape and develop our families.

There is something special about hearing stories you can relate to and learn from. That’s why I created my podcast: Mamas Know Best We Got Something to Say , and it has been a huge labor of love for me. What started as a hobby has grown into something so much more! My first podcast episode was posted November 2019, and there was a lot of trial and error in the beginning. It would take me almost two hours to edit one episode. The sound was not up to par, I was reaching out to stranger’s direct messaging asking if they’d be on my show, and recording any time my guests could record. I was all over the place. But then March of 2020 came; we were quarantined and I was laid off. So I took the time to re-evaluate the true impact I wanted to make with my podcast. I decided to hire a podcast editor, which has been a game changer for me, I purchased better audio equipment, I took the time to research my guests, and I set boundaries with my recording time. Once I made those changes, my podcast subscribers and downloads grew! 

I am now 80 episodes in, and I am thankful for the inspiring conversations I’ve had with other moms (and some fathers) about parenthood and life; knowing I get to make another mother feel seen, supported, and not alone for what she may be going through is the icing on the cake.
