A WP multi site would allow you to set up two separate blogs, if that works better for you. I don’t know if you could create a home page such as you describe within WP, with buttons for each of the blogs, but you could easily create a home page outside of WP that would lead off to each of the individual blogs.
Or you could do a little theme tweaking and get the effect you’re looking for within a single WP site, just using categories. It shouldn’t be too difficult for someone who’s familiar with custom themes.
WP is an incredibly versatile CMS.
