Itâ€™s been a while since Iâ€™ve emailed you, but this time I can credit a very full plate â€“ full, Iâ€™m happy to report, with all fun, exciting stuff. I wanted to take a moment to share with you some of the new things going on here, particularly if youâ€™re a podcast lover (or just podcast-curious!)
First of all, The Mom Hour is still going strong! Sarah and I are just a few weeks from our one-year anniversary and our 50th episode. The show airs weekly, and recording it is one of the highlights of my week. Sarah and I always have a blast discussing the topics on momsâ€™ minds, and try to provide some encouragement and guidance while reminding listeners that it is really all going to be OK. Weâ€™ve had nothing but amazing feedback on the show, and frequently get notes from listeners telling us they are "hookedâ€ or â€œobsessedâ€ and that we feel like friends. Thereâ€™s no higher compliment and weâ€™re so grateful!
If you want to see what the buzz is all about, you can visit the show page here: www.themomhour.com, or subscribe in iTunes here.
Second, this week we launched a brand-new DAILY podcast called LifeWork. If youâ€™re interested in business, entrepreneurship, lifestyle design, or just like to listen to interesting conversation on topics like living a better life and pursuing what matters, youâ€™re going to want to check out LifeWork. Co-hosted by my friend and local business-owner Dave Krock, each week LifeWork explores a theme over five days of mini-episodes including tips, tools, insightful conversations and inspiring interviews.
Dave and I just wrapped up our first weekâ€™s worth of episodes, and we could use your help! A lot of a fledgling podcastâ€™s success hinges on iTunes ranking and reviews, and if you love the show and think it deserves a larger audience, you can help by listening, subscribing, reviewing, and sharing LifeWork!

Third: apparently podcasting is the new black, and the timing has never been better to move forward on our long-term dream to expand the Life, Listened network of podcasts. Weâ€™re going to be looking to add a handful of already established shows to our network, as well as looking for talent to host a couple of new shows weâ€™ve already come up with. Weâ€™ll share more information soon, but if youâ€™re an experienced podcaster with a show about food, parenting, home, business or anything that falls under the â€œlifeâ€ category that youâ€™d like us to consider adding to the Life, Listened network - or if youâ€™re a great conversationalist whoâ€™d love to host a podcast thatâ€™s part of an established network - feel free to reply to this email with a â€œMe! Me! Me!â€ Weâ€™ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Okay, thatâ€™s all for today! Please, if you have a moment this weekend, check out LifeWork and let us know what you think â€“ either by leaving a comment on the show page, responding to this email, finding us on Facebook or Twitter or better yet, leaving a review on iTunes or your preferred podcast platform.
Iâ€™ll be in touch very soon with more news about the Life, Listened network and what you can expect coming up. Stay tuned!
