Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 217 of The New Family Podcast, where we talk to a creator of a hit TV show that presents the realities of being a modern-day working mother.
For this episode I had the enormous pleasure of chatting with Catherine Reitman, creator and star of the hit CBC show Workin’ Moms, now underway with its third season.
Workin’ Moms manages to be hilariously funny while offering an unvarnished version of modern-day motherhood. Catherine and I dig into topics like why no one asks if dads can “have it all,” why we carry so much guilt for pursuing our own dreams and the importance of finding a community of other parents to share the journey.
You can stream Seasons 1 and 2 of Workin’ Moms on both CBC’s streaming service Gem and Netflix, and watch new episodes as they become live every Thursday on CBC television at 9 p.m., or online through Gem.

What Catherine Hopes People Get Out of Watching Season 3 of Workin’ Moms
“I’m hoping that people enjoy it. Season 3 is a roller coaster ride, it’s hilarious and I think very dynamic. I think we’ve upped the stakes for all of our characters in really interesting ways. I can’t wait to hear how people experience it.”
