The Brown Mama Blueprint Podcast is a podcast for black moms with the intention of amplifying black female voices through storytelling and giving black mamas advice on the subjects that matter most in their lives. Muffy's goal is to help you do the whole-woman work necessary to be the whole woman you want to be.

A homeschooling, vegan, Christian mom, Jessica Brown is one of the everyday moms who took the stage to fiercely tell her authentic story via The Brown Mama Monologues stage. Jessica's story entitled "By Any Means Necessary" walks us through what I like to call "Do-It Scare motherhood" as she shows us what's it's like when black mothers make parenting choice that are out of alignment with what the world expects from black moms.
