Excellent Podcast for Parents!

Just finished the most recent episode. Julia and crew are funny, keep the conversation going, and are full of useful advice for parents in the Portland Metro area. The music is cool, the audio well mastered and sounds good. Well produced, great content. Check it out!

Lots of fun!

Funny, smart and informative. They are still working out the kinks, but you can tell they are having fun.

Gets to the information quickly and cleanly and moves on! Not boring!

I’m so happy I didn’t have to fast forward 8 minutes through uninteresting uncomfortable banter before I got to to some interesting and useful information. I was really impressed this was your first episode. I’m gonna subscribe. I love how quickly you went through each subject. I got a full picture of each one and at no point found myself wanting to fast forward. This is the biggest compliment I can give y’all as I have no attention span. The restaurant review answered every question I had the second it popped in my head. Suggestion: I’d love if y’all covered places where I can take my toddler indoors for activities. Like restaurants with play areas. I don’t have time to read anymore so I get all my info from podcasts when cleaning and cooking. I think every publication should be doing audio versions of their content.
