Vanessa Anderson

When Vanessa Anderson isn’t co-hosting Real Mother Fuckers, she is an early childhood/parenting class educator, Waldorf Spanish teacher, yoga/fitness instructor, homeschool mom, and a lover of gardening. She is a mother of two and married to a first responder, which means she has learned to embrace and grow many strengths when shit hits the fan when her husband is gone for long periods of time. All good though, she gets to enjoy her husband’s hot bod when he comes home.

  • Fun fact: She embraces aging and farts at the grocery store with grace – it happens to all of us, why don’t we just normalize it already?! 
  • A favorite quote: What seems impossible today will be a warm up tomorrow!
  • Her why for this podcast: She loves to know about everyone’s life experiences. It brings her closer to herself and a truth bigger than herself.

Stephanie Cooley

When Stephanie Cooley isn’t co-hosting Real Mother Fuckers, she writes Unpacking, a weekly newsletter about the human experience, creative work, mental woes, and mindful (but not in the BS way) living. Storytelling is in her bones; she’s a former PR rep in the tech industry for 15 years, an ex-newspaper reporter (she went bankrupt with the industry), and she wrote stories in squishy plastic journals with locks on it as a kid. She is a mother of two and she and her husband took in two teenage boys when they needed a safe and stable home. Those boys visit home often to raid their fridge and she ain’t mad about it.

  • Fun fact: Known to be expressive, she can “slap” you with excitement, à la Elaine from Seinfeld.
  • A favorite quote: I have begun to wonder if the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company. – Rachel Naomi Remen
  • Her why for this podcast: I love a good underdog story. I’m here for inclusivity and having the courage to digest a. Michelle Obama said in her book: “There’s grace in being willing to know and hear others. This, for me, is how we become.”
