In the U.S., 70% of new fathers take off just 10 days or fewer to spend with their new baby. So what's it like when two new working parents in Brooklyn can take a 12-week parental leave together? We both love our careers and hope to share parenting as equally as we can, starting off with shared parental leave. Maybe we're delusional. Let's find out.

We are Adrienne and Christian, and had our first baby, Rasmus, in November 2017. Once our parental leave kicked off, we started posting a new episode each week, and we invite you along for the ride. Now posting monthly episodes as of spring 2018.

This is my current favorite podcast! Adrienne and Christian bring such a fresh and lovely perspective to parenting. I hope that they add some episodes here and there once parental leave is over!

Honest, Firsthand Experiences from First-Time Parents

I’ve listened to the first 5 episodes, and as a parent of two older children Adrienne’s & Christian’s weekly journey transports me back to all of the happiness, excitement, and confusion of those first few weeks as a new parent - with all of the unexpected humor and frustrations that I may not have been able to appreciate at the time. If you’re looking to step into the shoes of a couple who are merging their personal/professional/social lives with the arrival of their first baby, this podcast is for you; new, experienced, future parent - even if you don’t want kids - this podcast is a great listen.

Love this

Adrienne and Christian are two of the sweetest people on the internet. I just heard the first episode and I can't wait to hear the next one and learn what their experience is like as brand new parents. Super entertaining and useful to someone like me, a woman planning to have children and maintain a career at the same time.
