The past two Fridays, I've enjoyed two really great recent podcasts with some excellent spokespeople from this community:
- On Aug. 8th, the CBC Radio program Day 6 with Brent Bambury featured a discussion with three prominent "No-Mos: Women who aren't having children" (by choice and not) -- including Lisa Manterfield, Melanie Notkin and Laura Scott.
- On Aug. 15th, BBC Radio 4 spent a half-hour on the subject of A Family Without a Child, featuring interviews with Jody Day, Paula Coston & Jessica Hepburn.
"That growing sense of emptiness you feel in the pit of your stomach? No soulmate or cherished baby is ever going to obliterate it for you. The only person who can content with the deep-down scary you-ness of you is yourself."Yep.
As always -- beware the comments section. :p (I love how they always degenerate into a "have kids or don't have them, don't whine to me" rant. Ummm, you all kind of missed the whole point here, lol. I often wonder if the people commenting actually read the articles or listened to the podcasts.)
