The Former ‘It’ Girl of Blogging Is Now a Jewish Mom


A decade ago, Emily Gould’s confessional blogging and New York Times Magazine cover story — with its sexy bedroom portrait — made her the “It” girl of the digital age.

Today, Emily is a mother of two, and she’s working on her third book while raising her family in Brooklyn. In this week’s episode of Call Your Mother, we get an inside look into Emily’s evolution as a writer, a woman, and a mother, including what advice she would give to her 20-something self. Jordana and Shannon also speak candidly with Emily about babies’ belly buttons (they’re kinda gross), the disparity of women’s labor in many families, and how Internet life is actually real life.

Plus, Jordana’s mom gets serious with us about rising anti-Semitism in the U.S., and how worried should we really be. We’re not going to divulge any more — so go download, listen, and tell all your friends.
