Cocoon Podcast With Valerie & Lizzie
Cocoon is not a pregnancy podcast. Not really. It’s not about babies.
It’s not a week-by-week look at how your body is changing. We won’t be talking about what to expect when you’re expecting because Cocoon is really about what you didn’t expect when you were expecting. These are stories of metamorphosis. Of growth and development and pain and progress and, eventually, of emerging as a different being. Maybe we are more open than we were before. Maybe we understand a little more deeply what someone else is dealing with—and how to help them. Maybe we were surprised by our endurance or our commitment or our ambivalence or our apathy. Whatever it is—however we’ve changed— we share our stories to give support, we share them to find support. We share them to speak the truth, to make people laugh, to relieve a burden, to find answers, to connect.
That is what Cocoon is, and is about.
It’s hosted by Valerie Best and Lizzie Heiselt, who live with their families in Brooklyn, New York.
