Childfree Podcasts: latest episodes
Childfree Media Podcast
Panellists from the 2022 Virtual Childfree Convention share their experiences getting sterilized.
On our second episode, the Childfree Girls discuss Parenting by Circumstance or, as Kris likes to call it, Childfree Parenting. "What does this mean?" we hear you ask. The Childfree Girls podcast (2019-2022) is now archived on the Childfree Media podcast! Three women in three separate countries challenge society's expectations of women as mothers with no-holds-barred conversations and interviews.
Host Raphie shares her thoughts on the misconception that childfree people are always available.
Childfree people share their experiences caring for aging parents and dependent family members.
During this meeting, Dr. Jay digs more into employee benefits with Anna & Grant. In addition, they also review what it’s been like following a budget for the last month. Although this is the fourth meeting, this is their first month following a budget. The first month never goes perfect. They further talk about balancing dining out, spending, and goals (such as travel). It is possible to be on a budget and still travel, it just takes a bit of planning.

The Reddit topic today comes from r/AITA and it’s not even specific to being Childfree. Do you feel like you’re expected to babysit on a whim because you have “so much time”? Have you ever been left out of your family plans simply because you’re “other”? It’s another discussion about being the outcast and fighting back for yourself.

In this week's minisode, I'm talking about why the term 'single not by choice' is a source of frustration for me. Much like the many shades of grey between the words 'childless' and 'childfree', people often forget that the term 'single not by choice' can also be subject to nuance - and doesn't necessarily translate as 'desperate for a partner.'
We’re Not Kidding
Brenda Brodie is an all-around fabulous human who I am grateful to consider a friend. In this episode, Brenda shares her experience advocating for her choice to be sterilized and her relatively easy experience getting approved for a bilateral salpingectomy.
