Happy SECOND Anniversary to ON BOYS

Two years.

More than 100 episodes covering important topics such as boys & sex, masculinity, ADHD, mental health, honesty & so much more.

But on our SECOND anniversary, we’re most grateful for the relationships we’ve created. We’re no longer simply co-hosts or colleagues; we’re friends. We enjoy talking to one another as much as (we hope) you enjoy listening to us.

We’re also grateful for the professional connections we’ve made as a result of this podcast. This year alone, we spoke with Steve Biddulph, Peggy Orenstein, Phyllis Fagell, Dr. Vanessa LaPointe, Michael C. Reichert & dozens of other on-the-ground boy advocates. It may seem, sometimes, that boys are an after thought in today’s world, but we’ve learned that there a lot of smart, caring, committed people who care deeply about boys and their future.

We’re thankful for YOU, our listeners. You inspire and motivate us. In fact, we’d like to get to know you better, so we can better meet your needs. Will you please take a few minutes to complete our first-ever Listener Survey? CLICK HERE!

In this episode, Jen & Janet discuss:
  • The importance of humor in raising boys
  • How parenting keeps us grounded
  • ON BOYS’ origin story
  • How Jen & Janet learned so much about boys
  • Why one-size-fits-all answers don’t work
  • Our individual quirks
