“One of the things I learned through years of being a mom—and I’ve been a mom for 20 years now—is that when other moms and women share with you, you learn so much,” Pamela Adlon says in this 2016 Peabody Conversation about “Better Things,” the show she created, stars in, and directs. Peabody Awards honored the first season of the FX sitcom for being “an at-times raw examination of the vicissitudes of working motherhood, crackling with feminist verve and energy.”
