You might know John Moltz as a person on the Internet. Many people do! However, he also appears in other guises, sometimes as a large, golden bull and others as a phalanx of beautiful swans! Usually, however, he appears as a guy working at a desk. Other important points that John Moltz would like to share:
John Moltz is fluent in English and conversational in two other languages.John Moltz is the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. He’s fast enough for you, old man.John Moltz is actually made up of thousands of smaller John Moltzes, all furiously working tiny little gears to keep the larger construct you know as “John Moltz” functioning.John Moltz is a little too comfortable talking about himself in the third person.
Jon Armstrong is a long time blogger at the barely alive Blurbomat, a UX/UI consultant, a web/business developer, a photographer and the impetus for this show. In a past life he executive produced a popular blog and ran the business. Yes, business. Turning This Car Around marks Armstrong’s first foray into podcasting.

Not Just for Dads
I'm a mom of a 9-month old and I look forward to new episodes of this podcast. Not only do I often laugh out loud at some of the comments (especially the inappropriate ones), but I really enjoy hearing a different perspective about parenting. Congrats, dads - you're doing a great job.
Great perspective on parenting!
There are so many "mommy" podcasts out there, that it was great to run across this one from the dad perspective, and what a great perspective it is! The hosts are charismatic and delightful, and the conversation free-flowing and honest. Great commentary on the joys, struggles, and hilarity that comes with being a dad. Looking forward to hearing more!
Now *this* is just fun
I'm not a parent. I'm not a man. Yet I love this podcast. The guys seems to genuinely enjoy their conversations, and they mesh well together. Their love for their kids is apparent and that's what a parenting podcast should really convey (even though we know that some days are just harder than others).
Disclaimer: I started listening simply because I *knew of* one dad and his kids through internet infamy. Now I'm interested in all of their families.
