Every once in a while you meet someone who stops you in your tracks and forces you to take notice. That’s what happened to me when I first met Jennifer Tracy. Jen was a guest at The Self Care Project, an event I co-hosted in late 2018. Here I was, standing on the stage, watching the ladies in front of me receive all of the gifts our incredible speakers were sharing. Jennifer was light a ray of light, embracing the day like no one else. I knew I needed to meet this woman and hear her story.
Well you are in for a real treat! In this first-time-ever pod swap, the Forty Thrive podcast is being hosted by Jennifer Tracy, host of the MILF podcast. And yes, that also means you should head over to the MILF podcast and listen to this week’s episode, hosted by yours truly!
Jennifer Tracy presents her breakthrough podcast, MILF Podcast (that’s Moms I’d Like to Follow) in front of a live audience. Jennifer welcomes several of her MILF guests on stage to openly riff about sex after kids and, well, just sex. There will be bawdy-ness, there will be sexy-ness, and mostly there will be milf-y-ness. Oh, and also some pole dancing. What? Did you really think there wouldn’t be? Come on!
Special guests to be announced prior to event.

About Jennifer Tracy
Telling women’s stories is at the heart of everything I do. The rich, complex, and sometimes messy lives we lead as women allow us to birth remarkable stories and experiences. And those are the stories that heal us and connect us to one another. We need that more than ever. There is no “village” to raise our kids. We create the village; on the internet; in our kids’ schools. Within these communities, we find the antidote to feeling profound isolation. Providing listeners with the conversations on MILF podcast is a way for me to help mitigate that isolation for moms in all stages of motherhood. At least for one hour.
I never felt so alone as when I was first home from the hospital, by myself with my newborn, and I was certain that I was already failing. No one was telling me that, but no one was there to tell me that I wasn’t. I needed support. I didn’t have it. I didn’t know how to ask for support. This is ultimately why I created the MILF Podcast, it’s why I’m a novelist, and it’s why I’m driven to bring women together to create powerful connection and community with them. (I also like to push boundaries of societal norms and what is “appropriate” for women’s roles, which is why I chose the acronym MILF as the name of the show. Not only did I want to turn MILF (and its original definition) on its head, reclaiming and redefining our sexuality as women with children, but I also had a deep desire to embolden femininity in its most powerful form (creating and sustaining life through our divine sexual bodies) and the fierce strength of that which translates to so many other creative forms. I’ve also learned everything I know about motherhood by literally Following other Moms who paved the way before me or alongside me.
Much of my formative years were spent as a film student in Boston, France, and Australia, and then I moved to Los Angeles to work as an actress. I pressed pause on that path when I became a mother. After giving birth to my son in 2009, I used writing as a form of survival and therapy, exploring motherhood, postpartum depression, and its struggles. Telling my story in essays and articles online ultimately inspired me to write my first novel which ultimately led to working with other writers who are finding their voices in story which then led to starting this podcast and hearing the stories of brilliant women I’d love to follow every week who are also figuring out how to balance motherhood and their creative lives as entrepreneurs, artists, and badass women! (Yes, I love run-on sentences and I’m not going to apologize for it!)
