What the Power of the Parent Podcast is all about…

I get to have so many amazing conversations with parents in my line of work, I wanted to find a way to sprinkle a bit of the magic further afield. Power of the Parent: The Podcast is me having a chat with a whole host of utterly brilliant people who share their experiences on everything from being a parent in a pandemic, thoughts on flexible working, the role employers need to play, facing into burnout when you’ve got small people to tend to and how to handle the constant requests for snacks (I’m kidding, there is no way of handling this one, sorry).

I truly believe we need to take every opportunity to normalise conversations about being a parent but still wanting to look after ourselves, thrive at work and be able to hold wonderful conversations about how we celebrate and champion EVERYBODY. This podcast is my way of showing just that – the good, the bad and the CBeebies fuelled.

WHAT YOU’LL FIND IN THE EPISODES

GUESTS

Some of them are my mates in actual real life, some have been friendships grown over social media and others I’ve known from afar and they’ve willingly joined the conversation!

QUESTIONS

The conversations are all different, I was really keen to be able to pass the mic to other people and not get prescriptive about what we chatted about, so each one is very fresh. There are however three questions at the end of each episode (I was channelling Gi Fletcher here)

DISCUSSIONS

The vibe here is having a brew with a friend. We’ve got some big topics and I know your time is finite and precious, so the length of the episodes manages the two colliding.
