AS SEEN IN

Hi, I’m Kanika

I’m a former television anchor and executive producer (CNN International) turned entrepreneur, and host of the That’s Total Mom Sense podcast.

ABOUT

I was thrown into motherhood when I had my three kids (twins + 1) within a year and a half. It was sink or swim. I’m hardwired to ask tough questions and I found myself seeking answers about life as a parent from everyone from TedX speakers to the friendly Amazon customer service rep on the phone.

I knew other parents were in the same boat. With no time to read mountains of parenting and self-help books, I was yearning for actual tools to help with our daily life, as well as an outlet for parents to feel part of a conversation and community, so that’s how my podcast “That’s Total Mom Sense” was born!

Tune into my series where CEO, Stephanie Dua, provides simple tips on teaching early learners, reading, math, critical thinking, social/emotional skills, and broader life lessons.

We’re encouraging dads to take a seat at the table as my co-host, tech founder and parent of two, Michael Perry, and I discuss infertility, debunk gender norms, and even talk crypto.

ABOUT

I am a CNN television anchor turned entrepreneur and podcaster. I was thrown into the deep end of motherhood when I had my three kids [twins + 1] within eighteen months. It was sink or swim. So, I did what anyone would do. I doggy paddled my way to the surface! I’m hardwired to ask tough questions and I found myself seeking answers about life as a parent from everyone I knew – TED speakers, neighbors, Amazon reps. I knew other parents were in the same boat. With no time to read mountains of self-help books, I was yearning for tools to simplify daily life, as well as an outlet to feel part of a conversation and community. Just like that, my podcast That’s Total Mom Sense was born!

As first time parents, we often struggle with navigating our new role. Whether we’re googling for answers or taking advice from others, we must realize there’s no substitute for our superpower of intuition – our mom sense and dad sense. On my show, I invite world renowned thought leaders to share how they achieved success and the life lessons that they’re passing on to their kids. We tackle topics like how to rediscover your identity after kids, teaching your child to regulate big emotions, rekindling your marriage, and a daily routine that leaves you looking and feeling your best. On my monthly spin-off, What Matters Most with Maple, I co-host with tech founder and father of two, Michael Perry. We encourage dads to pull up a seat at the table as we discuss topics like infertility, same sex marriages, and debunk gender norms.

My guests and I focus on problem solving and the big picture. What is our legacy? What values do we want to impart to the next generation? For as parents, we’re tasked with the biggest responsibility and privilege on the planet. We are raising the change-makers and innovators of tomorrow!

Grab your earbuds + chai and get ready to be enlightened, engaged and entertained. Enjoy the show!
