Podcast #2: Temperament

Here’s the second podcast! Woohoo! (You can click here to go to our podcast website and download it directly.)

The format for this time is:

* Situation of the Week (by Kelly)
* Topic: Temperament (begins around 4:54)
* Q&A (begins around 28:17)

Yes, we went REALLY long on our topic, partly because it’s a favorite one of ours, and partly because we forgot to watch our time! (Chalk that second reason up to our learning curve.) We were much more vigilant in our subsequent recordings, so we hope you won't hold our blathering on against us. :o)

Brendan did an absolutely AMAZING job of editing our podcast! He fixed the extreme left-right-stereo problem (which couldn’t have been avoided for the first podcast due to some of the technical problems we had recording the first podcast). But it sounds MUCH better. He also made our music sound fancy, and don’t miss the section with Morgan, Ryan, and Livy, just before the Q&A begins! We know that our sounds are still very poppy (hard P sounds, for instance), but we changed the position of the microphones beginning with the third podcast, so hopefully you’ll find that this is less noticeable beginning next time.

Our plan for now is to release a podcast about once a week, usually on a Monday or Tuesday. So check back next week for Podcast #3!

UPDATE: Here's the picture of Ryan and Livy that Kelly mentioned in the podcast. Ryan's about 3, and Livy's about 18 months old.


  1. I love your podcasts! They are so helpful. I recommend that you add your podcasts to iTunes to allow your listeners to add them to their que. I often have 30 minute waits while out and about that I would love to fill with positive discipline education, but can't because your podcasts are not on iTunes.

  2. Books mentioned at 27:58ish:

We'd love to hear your thoughts, so let's hear 'em! We're exploring serious ideas here, and think that a good intellectual discussion is a great way to fine-tune one's thoughts. Especially welcome are concrete examples from YOUR life, questions, and thoughtful challenges.

Personal attacks, spam, etc. is not welcome and will probably be deleted, unless we choose to keep them for our own amusement.
