The Childfree Girls Podcast

Three childfree women in three different countries challenge society’s expectations of women as mothers with no-holds-barred conversations and interviews. Hosted by Isabel (Colombia), Kristen (US) and LeNora (Canada).

Some childfree people regularly use *colorful* language to refer to parents and children. These words and terms are usually offensive and degrading.

Some of the same childfree people will call other childfree people a "breeder-pleaser" if the latter don't agree with the use of that type of language.

Which one are you?

Telling people that you have made the life-affirming decision to not ever raise children can be daunting, especially if the people you're going to tell are your own parents.

In this episode, we discuss "coming out" as childfree and we offer some words of wisdom to our listeners who are yet to tell their loved ones.

We think it's safe to say that many childfree people have "lost" at least one friend after they had kids. It's very common, and it sucks.

One of our listeners sent us an email asking us how we deal with these situations and if we had some tips on how to make more childfree friends. If you're interested in knowing our answers to these questions, this episode is for you.

Yes, you read that right, we had another conversation with a pro-lifer. Stephanie, our guest, also happens to be childfree, so when she reached out to us we were immediately interested in hearing her perspective regarding this highly divisive topic.

In our conversation with Stephanie, we've edited in some responses to some of the things she said that may have warranted clarification or correction. We have also edited in some of her responses to those edits. You can find our full clarification included source material, as well as her responses in full, at our website childfreegirls.com on our blog.

As you may have already noticed by the title, this is probably the last time we will give this type of conversation a go in our podcast...

Our first recording of 2022 kicks off with a personal announcement from Isabel that sparks a conversation about Betty White, sex carrots, and the Pope (not in that particular order, but the elements are all there).

In July 2021 we were invited to the 2021 Virtual Childfree Conference, appearing on a panel called Childfree Collaborations, and we talked about how to start them and why they are important.

This panel was moderated by Cody Hetzel, from Childfree Family, and it takes you behind the scenes on how we make the Childfree Girls podcast and web series work.

You can watch the rest of the panels that happened in what is now called Childfree Convention right here: https://www.youtube.com/c/childfreeconvention

Make sure you follow them to know when the 2022 Childfree Convention is happening!
