Adalyst Media, the podcast network “where women and moms come to listen,” announces the launch of Unsticking It! hosted by Blaire Brooks & Molly Lloyd, past co-hosts of the popular parenting podcast Toddler Purgatory. After launching at #4 on the Apple Podcasts Kids and Family chart in 2021, Toddler Purgatory developed a large and dedicated female fan base over its hundred-episode run. Unsticking It! With Blaire and Molly will bring all the humor and insight listeners have come to expect from this hosting team to a new podcast focused on ways to regain our creative selves after becoming parents.
Each week the co-hosts of Unsticking It! will explore ways listeners can break free from their creative ruts and reignite their artistic flow. As the show’s tagline explains, “Sometimes… life stucks!” Hosts Blaire Brooks and Molly Lloyd, who each combine parenting with their respective creative careers, plan to share the struggles involved with overcoming creative blocks as busy parents.
As an actor, Blaire Brooks’ credits include appearances on the television shows Bull, Blacklist, and Law & Order: CI. Molly Lloyd’s own extensive credits in theater, television, and film include voicing the character of the mom on PBS Kids’ Pinkalicious, and a longtime stint as a resident sketch performer at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City.
Co-host Molly Lloyd said, “I could not be more excited to return to the mic with my friend and partner in creativity and momming chaos! As our off-mic conversations started to lean away from potty training and into clearing our artistic blocks, we knew we had to bring our listeners along on our journey. We know our past female listeners will connect to our attempts to rediscover our creativity while navigating the chaos of daily life: pandemics! World events! Children with no volume modulation in the car! (Seriously though, how can one small child be so loud?) Can’t wait to get unstuck with you all.”
Blaire Brooks added: “With Toddler Purgatory, Adalyst helped both of us find our voices as moms and artists. Now, Unsticking It! will dig deep into the heart of why our passion to create matters, how to face our fears and find what might not have been lost after all—just stuck. It’s a vulnerable, hilarious, insightful ride that we can’t wait for our listeners to take with us!”
New episodes launch every other Tuesday starting February 6th. Follow @unsticking_it_podcast on Instagram and subscribe to Unsticking It wherever you get your podcasts.
