When it comes to human and non-human animals, we are more alike than different, especially when it comes to mothering. In today’s special episode, I share my thoughts about what it means to be a great mom and how elephants and alligators both meet the criteria. This episode is dedicated to my own mother.

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant.
