As you can see we have had lots of changes since the first of the year! We now have a new look on our website, a new web domain www.thedadexperiencepodcast.com, and have been using lots of new innovative ways to get information to you from The Dad Experience. All of this with new exciting shows being recorded or awaiting their release date!
First and foremost we'd like to think our returning listeners, especially those who have been listening from the beginning! We know it's not just our parents and spouses listening :). We'd also like to thank the new listeners and subscribers whether you found us through another podcast on The POD Network, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram! Please continue to help us by sharing our podcast, rating us, and or reviewing us. Even though it seems very small and doesn't make a difference, this does go a long way and helps us to be found. Through this we can bring you more content and reach more listeners.
We are sure by now you have noticed that those crazy empty breaks in the episodes are beginning to have ads in them. With the move to our new network we now have become a part of their ad program. This is great news as, 1. The products should all be related to parenting, and 2. We can now do more like update the website, and add other new technologies to make the podcast even better for our listeners. When I (Adam) set out to create this podcast it started more as a audio journal where I could listen and learn from others. After talking with others and their interest in the topic, this turned into sharing it with the masses. The podcast is a hobby for myself and Mike, but to meet the ever growing demands and continue at our best we needed to put more into it. So in order to keep what we do free and the content free we have now added advertising to our show. So, please take a minute to listen to those ads, and we promise we will not put anything out their that Mike or I don't agree with.
This past weekend was so great, I had some time off so Eleanor and I got to spend some quality time together! We did some shopping, played, read lots of books, and watched some Sesame Street! Although this was exhausting it was one of the best weekends Eleanor and I have had! This all topped off with an amazing date night with the wife. A special shout out to Amma and Nannu for having Eleanor spend the night! (see the pictures below!)
Along with all of the exciting things happening on the show Adam and his wife Lauren are expecting their second daughter at the end of April. With that comes prepping a nursery, keeping our sanity at work, and trying to record some fresh content so that The Dad Experience Podcast doesn't miss a beat. We are all very excited and nervous about out new addition. We are also trying to prep our daughter Eleanor for the new exciting change. We will continue to update and let you know when the baby arrives, and how Eleanor is handling the transition. Being super new at all of this and very soon having to kids under two in the house we are feeling a bit overwhelmed. So I am bring this blog post to all of you and hopefully get some great words of wisdom and advice from Dads (Moms and grandparents....) On how to handle all of these new experiences that are about to take place.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts! It is so exiting to see this begin to grow the way it is. Remember this is listener generated discussion. Although we will have on experts in from different parenting specialties, our main mission with the podcast is to create content with our listeners. So if you have a show idea or want to be a guest on the show, please let us know. We are all about listening and sharing with each other to hopefully make being a parent a little bit easier. We appreciate all of you and keep being the great Dads that you all are!
