We’d love to hear from you! Please email us at Twopedsinapod@gmail.com. Let us know what you think of our podcasts and posts. Please tell us what other topics you would be interested in.
We are also happy to go to your parenting groups to talk about any area of pediatrics. Have your Hour with the Experts! Possible topics include: normal growth and development of any age group, potty training, feeding/eating issues, tantrums, sleep issues, discipline, allergies, asthma, ADHD, puberty, twin issues, or anything else of interest to you. We'll record the discussion and turn excerpts into a podcast.
Right now, the kitchen table is both our recording studio and editing desk. We are grateful for our opportunity to interview on National Public Radio with Robin Young on Here and Now . We appreciate reporters who helped spread the word in the Bucks County Herald, Philadelphia Magazine, the Bucks County Courier Times, Phillyburbs, and the Newtown Patch. We thank Laura Diamond for publishing us in the California Magazine Group (we’re on page 16) and the folks at Real Simple magazine for allowing us to help with one of their articles. Ultimately, however, we depend on you, our readers, to tell other parents about us.
