Host Donna Bardsley is joined by Emmy McCarthy, Cessna Kleinmoedig Veeris, and Jane Costello at the Amsterdam Mamas Headquarters.

Emmy talks about being British while asking people for money, and we discuss why Amsterdam Mamas concentrates on local issues  rather than trying to resolve worldwide parenting battles, as well as what Amsterdam Mamas does advocate for.

We get insight into Emmy’s drinking habits, and what it means to be the head mama to 9000+ people.

Finally, Emmy reveals the top three strangest requests she’s ever received, which make us reconsider our entire business model.

Jane and Cessna give enthusiastic reviews of Amsterdam Mamas’ events, subgroups, and newsletter options for our members.

The rest of the team runs and hides (they really did. 9,000 mamas? No problem. 1 microphone, hmmmmm….)
