ON BOYS podcast is now officially three years old.

Our episodes have been downloaded more than 465,000 times — with almost 314,000 of those downloads coming over the past year. Join us in this very “unplugged” episode, as we acknowledge the suffering and hardship of the past year, while also noting and celebrating our progress.

“The fact that any us of us are still making progress toward our overall goals — whether professional goals or personal goals, like raising a decent human — speaks powerfully to how much we care, and how resilient we can be,” Jen says. “Take a moment to acknowledge all of those things and the progress you’ve made.”

In this episode, Jen & Janet discuss:
  • Our origin story — how ON BOYS podcast came to be
  • Behind the scenes
  • How podcasting is like parenting
  • The exponential growth of ON BOYS
  • How the coronavirus pandemic changed our lives
  • The importance of community
  • Our predictions for life after the pandemic
  • Prioritizing self-care
  • Jen’s upcoming books
  • Our future plans
