Yes Mother: A Bates Motel Podcast, episode 3, “What’s Wrong With Norman?”

Sorry we are a little late getting our latest episode up, but a little thing called Christmas got in the way. We hope everyone had a great holiday season! Now that it is over Emily and Sue are getting back on track and looking forward to putting out new episodes. Enough about that. In episode 3 of Bates Motel we found out Dylan gets a job helping guard the massive pot field that is running the towns economy. Norman and Emma play detective and find more proof in one of the motel rooms that the girl in the journal is real. Norman faints in Ms. Watson’s class and ends up in the hospital. Dylan and Norman have a bonding moment. Sherrif Romero gets a warrant to search the Bates’ house. We find out Norman kept Keith Summer’s belt and hid it under his bed. Shelby finds the belt and doesn’t tell anyone except Norma. Shelby and Norma get it on and Norman dissaproves. Norman hallucinates a conversation with Norma about getting the belt back from Shelby and the episode ends with Norman breaking into Shelby’s house to look for the belt and instead finds a girl locked up in his basement. Get your vapor couch ready and listen in as Emily and Sue discuss this very exciting episode of Bates Motel.

Yes Mother Podcast Episode #02 – “Nice Town You Picked, Norma…”


In episode 2 of Bates Motel we meet Dylan, Norma’s older son and Norman’s half brother. We see right away that Dylan and Norma do not get along the way Norma and Norman do. Norma gives Sheriff Romero even more reasons to suspect her in the disappearance of Keith Summers. Norma tries to get close to Deputy Shelby which seems to upset Norman. Norma finds out from Deputy Shelby that the town is a little weird and things don’t run like other towns do. Norman has another “episode” and attacks Dylan. Emma comes over to study with Norman and borrows the diary Norman finds in the motel room. Emma has the diary interpreted and tells Norman that it is about sex trafficking and there might be a body buried in the woods. Emma and Norman go on a hike to find where the body is buried and they run across a big pot field and then get chased by men with guns. The episode ends with a body hanging upside down on fire in the middle of town.

Join Emily and Sue as they recap the episode, talk about not only what they have been watching but some podcasts they like as well. And don’t forget the spoiler section at the end, so if you are new to this series you may want to skip that.

Yes Mother Podcast Episode #01- First You Dream, Than You Die


Hey horror fans! The podcast where we cover the pilot episode is now available!

Episode 1 of Bates Motel does not waste any time introducing us to the Bates family and the world they live in. The episode begins with Norman finding his father dead in the garage and then jumps to 6 months later with Norman and Norma moving into the iconic Psycho house. The action doesn’t stop there! Norma is attacked by a very unhappy previous owner of the property, there is a murder and we see some pretty creepy interactions between mother and son. Listen along as Emily and Sue recap and discuss the episode, talk about what they are currently watching and introduce the “What the Bip” segment. What the bip is that you ask? You will just have to listen to the bippin episode to find out. There is also a spoiler segment at the very end, so be warned! If you are watching season 1 of Bates Motel for the first time and listening along, you may want to avoid the spoiler section.

Introducing a new podcast! “Yes, Mother: A Bates Motel Podcast”

imageWelcome to episode one of the Yes Mother Podcast. A podcast about the A&E show, Bates Motel, which is a modern day imagining of the story of Norman Bates and his mother in the early days. This podcast is hosted by Emily and Sue, a couple of sisters (literally sisters) who love this show and love podcasts, so it was a no brainer to start this. Emily already does a podcast, The McKinley Cast about the TV show Freaks and Geeks. Sue has never done a podcast but listens to a lot of them.

In this episode you are introduced to the hosts, kind of, we talk about the show and why we like it so much. We talk about some of the cast and we go over a little about what we are going to talk about in the upcoming episodes. We also have a little discussion about what we are currently watching. You can send us any feed back at, also you can join our Facebook group (and it would be really cool if you did, because we just made it and we are the only members, so that is really sad).
