Episode 3- "Momming," Shaming & Vulnerability Hangovers with Amanda Harrington

Linda's special guest is  Amanda Harrington,  a wife, a mom to a two and a half year old son, who somehow finds time to lead a product strategy team as a senior product manager at an international tech company. 

Linda & Amanda discuss the joys and  struggles of motherhood,  mom-shaming and being a working mother in this day and age.  There are a few twists and turns in this episode as an unexpected guest shows up and Linda is confronted with the good and the not so good of her own motherhood experience. 

Shame and vulnerability researcher, Dr. Brené Brown coined the term, vulnerability hangover. It refers to the time after we take an emotional risk and we are uncertain of the outcome. That is exactly how Linda felt after this interview.
