The Because Show

The Because Show is a podcast by Jerilyn, Susan and Amy, three working moms who don’t talk about work and don’t talk about being moms. What?

Each week, they will share the stories, confess the secrets and give the scoop on everything from personal faux pas to ridiculous ex-boyfriends to high-end mascara. Note: Real talk from these three contains the possible random swearing and the occasional blue content. No big.
