Great journey to be on
If you are a new parent, or a parent in any stage, you will find this podcast very enjoyable! So many things I could relate to and learn from following Mike and JC’s journey of being parents, with Dave, who’s a perfect host for Mike.
I am a huge fan of all David Chen’s podcasting work. But this one with his brother is particularly dear to me and I highly recommend it for all new or soon-to-be parents or lovers of all things Chen.
