So much fun!

This is a great podcast. I’ve learned so much about keeping my family healthy, and have truly enjoyed every episode that I’ve been able to listen to. Dr. Jim, Hayden, and Matthew do an awesome job sharing all sorts of parenting advice, while having fun with each other (and their listeners 😀).

“Dr. Sears talks about himself Podcast!”

I was excited about listening to this podcast because of the episode titles, and I am a Dr. Sears fan. Unfortunately, Dr Sears talks more about himself, and I wasn’t able to extract the information I needed.
