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.”

Erin Grau was a New York Times employee who wasn’t satisfied with “good enough” parental leave. So, along with a determined group of women, she fought to make it better for everyone at her company.
