22: No Worries, with Emma Doran
On this episode Amy sits down with comedian Emma Doran, currently on tour with her headline show Mad, Isn’t It? From her recent appearance on RTÉ sketch show No Worries If Not, to a variety of radio, tv, and podcast work, Emma’s comedy career has gone from strength to strength. She is mum to three kids – Joe, Tommy, and Ella – and she tells Amy the story of becoming a mum while still in her final year at school. Her experiences have influenced her life, career, and her own parenting style. There’s plenty to chat about, from comedy and kids, to parenting a teenager, career changes, taking a chance and going for it and a few parenting fails along the way.
21: Go gentle on yourself, with Georgie Crawford
On this episode Amy sits down with health coach, wellness speaker and podcaster Georgie Crawford. Georgie’s life changed utterly when she underwent treatment for breast cancer not long after having her first child. However, the experience allowed her to completely rethink her life and she and Amy discuss her illness, quitting her job, and how to see a positive side in everything. They also chat about parenting, surrogacy, Georgie’s career and new book, and the importance of a really cold shower!
20: Food Can Tell Amazing Stories, with Gina and Karol Daly
In the first episode of 2023, Amy chats to Gina and Karol Daly, the award-winning creators of The Daly Dish. From their first meeting, and whirlwind romance, to their recent win at the Irish Book Awards, Gina and Karol have plenty of stories to tell. Their love of cooking grew out of early attempts to feel healthier while still eating the tasty food they loved, and it has led them from tasteless tacos to recipes sought out by their hundreds of thousands of online followers and cookbook fans.
It's not all about the food, though. Gina and Karol are proud parents to Holly, Ben, and baby Gene. They chat about parenting, pregnancy, terrible baby food, and the very special significance of World Down Syndrome Day.
19: 'Tis the Season! Parenting gaffes, garlands and festive glee with Aoibhín and Ailbhe Garrihy
It’s nearly Christmas, and Amy sits down with Aoibhín and Ailbhe Garrihy to chat about sisters, mums, and how to have a Christmas without all the small kids constantly waking everybody up!
From a family of three sisters, and with several daughters and a son between them, Ailbhe and Aoibhín talk about growing up, parenting, and their own mum, whose advice they reluctantly admit is always useful. Ailbhe discusses working in the family business, while Aoibhín opens up about leaving her acting life behind to start her own business and a new life in Clare. There are tales of kids, plenty about dogs, both funny and tragic, and lots of Christmas cheer!
18: Family, Fitness and Life Changes with Mairead Ronan
On this episode Amy chats to broadcaster, business owner and mother of three, Mairead Ronan. Mairead recently quit her very successful radio career to spend more time with her family and to concentrate on other projects, of which there are quite a few! She’s the long-time host of Ireland’s Fittest Family, a former winner of Dancing with the Stars (done with a new baby at home!) and owner of haircare brand Faro.
Amy and Mairead chat about “mum guilt” and the difficulties of balancing work, family and personal time. Leaving her radio job allowed Mairead to put more time into her business, until suddenly she was as busy as before! She talks about parenting two young kids alongside a teenager, comparing it to her own childhood and of the fond memories of her mother who she sadly lost at a very young age.
And, along the way, there are prank text messages, a very cute dog, parenting fails, learning to give herself a break and speaking of which… a mysterious broken arm!
Mamia&Me, hosted by Amy Huberman, is a place for parents to talk about the big crazy adventure that is parenthood. Amy will be chatting to mums and dads and special guests about everything from lockdown parenting to baby brain and surrogacy to home births. The whole parenting kit and kaboodle.
