Jordana Horn is a freelance writer, experienced columnist, contributing editor, podcaster, and host of Call Your Mother Podcast.
A very special guest joins Jordana and Shannon for the last episode of Call Your Mother’s first season: Shannon’s husband Jonathan Goldberg, who shares the story of getting a vasectomy after the couple’s third child. The group talk about the theme of responsibility for birth control, while touching on everything from semen in popsicle trays to Japanese sex dolls to Fiddler on the Roof. The hosts call Simon Myerson in the United Kingdom, who shares his own vasectomy tale along with the immortal words, “attached to my junk.”   Music:  "Voicemail" by Khronos Beats "Funky and Groovy" by Unique Sound "Best I Can" by Jasmine Jordan (ft.

Jordana and Shannon talk with Alysia Reiner. Alysia is known for her roles in Orange Is The New Black and The Deuce, but she’s a woman who wears many hats. She talks with Jordana and Shannon about activism, Judaism, producing, her new projects and her unique take on the world in which we live. Plus Shannon shares a tale of a wedding toast gone awry, and Gram reveals her disdain for certain extracurricular activities and glitter.  Music: "Voicemail" by Khronos Beats "Jet Setter" by MellowSTU "Funky and Groovy" by Unique Sound "For Hip-Hop" by Marscott "Best I Can" by Jasmine Jordan (ft.

Jordana and Shannon recorded this episode at a live Jewish National Fund event in New Jersey (on the very bima where little Jordana once became a bat mitzvah!), speaking with Israeli community center leader Michal Uziyahu about her life as a person and parent living in Israel next to the border with Gaza. She talks about red alerts, running for shelter, fears of balloons and kites -- and how she finds joy in living where she does. Plus Gram is a member of the studio audience and gets to give her two cents on whether or not parents should vet kids’ bar and bat mitzvah speeches.   Music:  "Voicemail" by Khronos Beats "Rewind Back" by Marscott "Best I Can" by Jasmine Jordan (ft.

Shannon is back from maternity leave, and this week she and Jordana (and Shannon’s new baby Jude) sit down with ultra-Orthodox nurse practitioner Blima Marcus. Marcus helped stop the measles outbreak of 2019 in religious communities, and talks about how to confront and combat the spread of misinformation -- whether about vaccines or anti-Semitism -- with education and compassion. Also, Gram shares her own personal experience with measles.
