About Us

Welcome to SpermCast, with actor, writer, and comedian Molly Hawkey. She wants a baby. The only problem is she's 40, single, and not exactly ready for motherhood. So she's on a quest - a quest for a sperm donor, and a quest for some personal growth. Each week you'll hear interviews with potential donors, but she'll also seek guidance from the pros: doctors, financial advisors, tarot card readers...whatever it takes. By the end of this series, if all goes according to plan, she'll find her donor and inseminate herself.

Ketchup with Josie, Josey, Lincoln and Dr. Rothenberg

EThis week you hear Molly's 10 week ultrasound. Then Molly catches up with Josie and Josie whose baby, Lincoln, was born at 25 weeks pregnant. We met this sweet family back in February when Lincoln was newly home from the hospital after spending 4 1/2 months in the NICU. Lincoln turns 1 this week and we'll hear all about what life is like these days. Then we'll catch up with friend of the podcast, Dr. Rothenberg, who can be heard scattered throughout the series, answering Molly's random questions. But this time Molly will be asking all about Dr. Rothenberg, because she's in the middle of IVF herself! We'll hear what iVF is like from the perspective of a fertility doctor, going through it herself.
