It only took us three episodes to talk about boobs, which led to our first explicit rating for it. Aw, new milestone! In this episode of Spawned with Kristen + Liz, we chat about bathing suit shopping (ugh) and the crazy things people say to Kristen when she’s out with her four kids (and well, to all parents, no matter how many kids they have). Liz is still kind of floored. Bonus: Liz schools Kristen on the correct use of the word schlep. You’ll hear why.


And we just wanted to add that we’ve been so thrilled and touched by your response to our SPAWNED with Kristen and Liz podcast. Thank you so much for your kind ratings, reviews, tweets, and emails.
