Meet Missy & Susanne

Missy Stevens

Missy is also a sometime-copywriter, advocate for foster children, and now, a podcaster. Her work has been featured on local and national online publications, as well as in the stage production, Listen to Your Mother. Missy, a native Austinite, lives an idyllic* suburban life with her husband, two sons, two dogs, and many....make that zero fish. RIP fish tank. The guys in Missy’s household are immeasurably patient with her. (*Idyllic sometimes looks like dirty socks under the sofa, and frequently smells unpleasant.)

She's currently writing her first non-fiction book. and also runs "Informed Parents of Austin," a group she founded to advocate for LGBTQIA+ students, families and staff in her school district.

How we became co-hosts

We met through old-school blogging, and have been conference roommates many times over the years. We feel confident that if we can share a toilet, we can also share an amazing podcast.

Until we’re allowed to be in the same room in a post-Covid world, we’re settling for old photos of us where we have lovingly, and sloppily cropped out our dear friends.
