Two lesbians talk about making and raising babies and nontraditional families with weekly guest speakers. Scroll through to find episodes on surrogacy, the legal aspects of LGBTQ family building, and a special episode featuring our own Dr. Mark Leondires and his husband Greg.📱We love to follow ITOCT on social as well!
Although not necessarily a podcast on LGBTQ parenting, this pod tells the first-person stories of people with families of every shape and size. Listen for interviews with all sorts of parenting experts who talk about what the “new normal” is for families today.
Created by Elizabeth Caliva, queer mom and mindset coach, this podcast was a great exploration of topics related to lesbian pregnancy, conception, parenting, and general health. They’ve stopped releasing new episodes, but the entire series is still available to listen.
This podcast discusses parenting and family building stories and surprises, and self-advertises as the parenting podcast for everyone. Named one of the Webby Award’s best family & kids podcasts of 2018 and 19, this pod has something for everyone. We especially loved their three part “sperm series”. 📱Follow The Longest Shortest Time on social.
This podcast, released by Family Equality each month, invites guest speakers to discuss any and all topics related to LGBTQ+ families. Here at Gay Parents To Be, we get a lot of questions about using a donor to conceive and how to talk to a future child about it, so we loved this episode, featuring "donor conceived queerspawn".
7. Daddy Squared - The Gay Dads Podcast
This podcast is hosted by dads Yan and Alex, fathers to young twins. They bring in expert voices (who just happen to be gay dads themselves) to speak on topics relevant to parenting, particularly issues that face the LGBTQ community. We also love following them on social! 📱Follow Yan & Alex on social
