The Double Shift is a reported, narrative podcast about a new generation of working mothers.

It’s not about parenting or kids, but the real, three-dimensional stories of moms who work — from the campaign trail to the legal brothels of Nevada and everywhere in between.

Host Katherine Goldstein is an award-winning journalist and mother. “On The Double Shift,” she says, “we’re talking to women who are challenging the world we see around us, not conforming to it.”

The Candidate Who Carpools

Season 1 | Episode 03 | 03.11.19 | 25 min

Ashton Clemmons didn't think the voice of mothers was well represented in her state government in North Carolina. So in 2018, she became one of the unprecedented number of women running for office. This intimate audio documentary goes far beyond the smiling photo-ops and gives a very real look at what it's like to be a candidate with three little kids.

“The mission and inspiration for this podcast is critically important for all women. I’m grateful this conversation is happening!”

“This is exactly the type of podcast we need right now. Stories about women told by women.”
