In this week’s edition of Slate’s parenting podcast Mom and Dad Are Fighting, Slate editor Dan Kois and special guest co-host Jessica Roake talk to BabyCenter executive editor Janet Ozzard about the most popular (and weirdest) baby names of 2014. Then, Dan asks Jessica a lot of questions about her Vice story on returning to pot as a mother of two. Plus triumphs and fails, recommendations, and a listener call about how soon is too soon to have a second kid.


Mom and Dad recommend:

Dan recommends MasterChef Junior on Foxt. Read Willa Paskin’s review of Season 1.

Jessica recommends Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty.
