I have only just gotten into podcasts, so believe me when I say I’m a bit behind the times here.
I really am.
I know that so many of you have been listening to podcasts for ages now. Ages.
So tell me which ones you love? Which ones you follow regularly? Which you subscribe to?
Well, this week I’ve officially joined the rest of the world in that I’m not only listening to podcasts more regularly, I’ve even been in a podcast. So exciting for this podcast-newbie.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Raising Readers– Guilt-Free! On the ‘Edit Your Life’ Show:
I suppose if you know podcasts, you know how this works, but if you don’t here’s what you need to know:
- Podcasts are just audio, like a radio show–there’s no video or text.
- You can find podcasts on SoundCloud, which is where the Edit Your Life Show is hosted.
- iTunes has podcasts like you wouldn’t imagine, so you can also find them there.
- You can also use TuneIn to find podcasts–and they’ve got a ton of books, sportscasts, and other things, too.
I’m sure there’s a lot more I’m missing about podcasts, but I want to get to the exciting stuff. . .
Here’s the Edit Your Life episode where the amazing Christine Koh of Boston Mamas asks me a few questions. I’m so thrilled that she took the time to interview me.
We covered a ton in 30 minutes–really, it’s not that long, but I feel like we covered so much!
Christine and I talked about:
- some of the tips in the book;
- how to raise readers guilt-free!
- my favorite tips;
- how to help reluctant readers;
- whether parents should or should not monitor what their children read;
- my recent fave books;
- my ‘next edit’–my favorite, tangible action that listeners can take.
Friends, take a little listen to Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest.
These two ladies are amazing, and not only are they accomplished authors (they wrote Minimalist Parenting together), but their Edit Your Life Show covers so many topics that truly resonate with so many of us.
The whole focus of the show is to ‘edit the unnecessary from your life to make room for the awesome.’ I love it.
They discuss and share tips on:
- managing email
- moving gracefully through holidays
- finding your fringe hours
- handling homework
- simplifying birthday parties
- and more–
I am just overwhelmed with gratitude that they took time to add me — and our Raising a Rock-Star Reader book — to their Edit Your Life schedule.
And now? I’m off to listen to some podcasts. . .
