Thanks so much to Tanya Lieberman of The Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog for the following guest post in honor of World Breastfeeding Week. This post originally appeared on The Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog.


My guest for this recording is Heather Cushman-Dowdee, creator of Hathor the Cowgoddess, shown to the left nursing and drawing in her kitchen.

This was a very fun interview.  I got to ask Heather about how she draws, the inspiration for Hathor, and the time she baked breastmilk bread with 150 college students.  Bonus knock-knock joke at the end!

This one is a bit long, but I just couldn’t bear to edit it down more.  It was such a fun and interesting conversation.

You can listen right here using the player below, or download it.


Heather’s new book, Hathor’s Zines, Slings, and Do-it-Yourself Things, (cover to the left) is now available for pre-order!
