Even though we are adults, we still need advice and guidance from our parents. In today’s bonus episode of NAKED, Catt calls her mother Linda Rendleman.
In this conversation the two connect on important issues, but also discuss what’s hard to talk about for most of us. Race relations. Aging. Vanity. Menopause. And even incontinence. This episode is made possible by our friends at Depend - www.depend.com.
This week, Eve Rodsky - author of domestic partnership bible, Fair Play - joins Catt in her bedroom for a pre-quarantine deep dive into sharing the workload at home.Before getting into the details of her game-changing book, Eve opens up about her early life -- from being raised by a single mom in the Lower East Side of New York, to graduating from Harvard with a law degree and moving on to build an incredibly successful legal career.
But even with all these wins in her professional life, Eve's home dynamic was flailing. She realized there needed to be a dramatic change if her marriage was going to survive. So, after a life-changing "blueberry moment" (don't worry, she explains), she crowd-sourced hundreds of men and women about their division of labor and went to work building a roadmap for revival.
Also in this episode, Catt shares some insight on her Vanity Fair essay about related issues (if you haven't read it yet, go check it out)! https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2018/04/catt-sadler-mom-tax-equal-pay

This week, Catt welcomes New York Times-bestselling author Glennon Doyle to her virtual bedroom. A MUST-listen episode as Glennon, who most recently wrote the lauded Untamed, shares her own ongoing journey of learning how to best support, celebrate and stand-up for Black women in this country.
She gets extremely candid about her personal history, sharing how she grew up in a conservative town in Virginia and developed an eating disorder and alcohol addiction at a young age. Glennon also opens up about why falling in love with her now-wife -- Olympic gold medalist soccer player, Abby Wambach -- was not all sunshine and roses.
Glennon's also a big proponent of embracing your feelings (we second that!), and making a concerted effort to address your privilege, do the research and be ready to listen when you come to the table as an ally for Black women.Also in this episode, Catt acknowledges how much she has to learn about racial injustice in America -- and her role in battling it.
