I met up with Lorenzo and Lindsey during the recent rain in Albuquerque to learn more about why they launched it.
“Parenting vs. Podcast started out of Lindsey and my need to create,” said Lorenzo. “We are both very creative and vocal in our own ways, and we thought and discussed how we could voice what’s going on in our heads about parenting, and about life in general.”
“…be ready for baby poop explosions. Not kidding. That’s what nobody talks about until you have your own kids and find out the hard way.”
Lorenzo emphasized he and Lindsey do not consider themselves perfect. “Our podcast is not meant to come from a point of view where we are experts giving advice to other parents,” he said. “It is a podcast communicating to other parents the hardships, frustrations, angst, and changes that parenting brings to adult lives and the lives of our kids. We try to be honest with our imperfections, we try to be honest about marriage, and sometimes our podcasts episodes are not pretty. However, we hope that sharing in some struggles with other parents and families we can bring hope to other people letting them know they aren’t alone while reflecting on our own parenting and marriage and improving upon those things for us.”
Some of you eagle eyed readers will recognize Lindsey as the co-host of, “What’s Up Abq?” podcast, with her brother.
