We're Aisling and Brannan. As writers and editors, parents, and strong-minded nerd girls ourselves, we're both huge fans of the authors and organizers who've worked to forge clear spaces and new paths for this generation of strong-minded girls. 

We spend all day buried in books of various sorts for both work and pleasure, and we've done a lot of work to unpack our own "muggle-born," outsider upbringing. One day, we looked up and realized that our perspective and the resources we'd gathered could become a resource for other parents of thinking-type (if you Meyers-Briggs), explorer, bossypants girls.

The work that we all have to do in order to undo the stories we've been told about ourselves (and, sadly, the stories we've often reflected to ourselves and to others) is neverending. So that's where we're starting—one book, one story at a time. It's the common room of parenthood, where we can sit together by the fire with our books from the restricted section and unpack them together. Specifically, how can we raise our own Hermiones— and Matildas, Tiffany Achings, Willow Rosenbergs, and so many more—to grow into their magic and set the world on fire? 

Join us on our podcast as we untangle the truths, growth points, and relatable quirks and characters found in the literary trope of the witch. Support us here on Patreon to help us turn our personal work, research, and parenting lessons learned into the upcoming book—Raising Hermione: Legillimency for Your Strong-minded Daughter. 

Episode 1 will be Live on 10/31/18.

Podcasts are cool, but have you tried sitting in a room with two slap-happy people eating junk food and mainlining coffee? Now you can! Enjoy extras like outtakes, episodes of Raising Hermione in pop-up video style, and off the cuff bonus materials of us in all of our awkward, ridiculous glory.
