Podcasting With Kids, During A Pandemic

I’m starting a podcast.

While parenting during a pandemic. And attempting to homeschool with a 4 and 2-year-old.

Like everything in my life so far, it will be a lot of learning on the fly, going with the flow and dealing with new challenges as they arise. Hopefully I can edit out some things, if not, you’ll be hearing a lot of REAL LIFE in the background.

Podcasting With Kids | Notes From Another Land | Amy Maureen Lynch

Welcome to my studio.

It’s our home office beside the dining room and unlike our stairs, it doesn’t have a baby gate. The doors are held by tension and don’t lock. While beautiful to work from, it’s not very practical for parents with young kids who feel the urge to give me a squeeze when I’m supposed to be ‘off duty’.

As such, I may also be recording episodes from our bedroom closet, where I can lock a door and use our carpet and clothes for better sound quality. 🤷‍♀️

Where parenthood meets professional development.

I’ll be sharing mini episodes for people who are also parents and don’t have the time/desire/energy/bandwidth/ability to tune in to something actively or in the background for more than 20 minutes. Like my Babies, Business + Breakfast™newsletter and events, it will be an online space where parenthood meets professional development and is designed with your needs and interests in mind, not as an afterthought!

I’ll be recording a mixture of solo episodes and chatting with other parents about business, entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids. Depending on the guest, I’ll be covering creativity, community and creating the changes you wish to see in the world.

Stories to guide you.

My first few guests are from England, Ireland and Canada and I’m hoping to speak with others around the world to share different perspectives when it comes to mixing babies and business.

I’m aiming for How I Built This with Guy Raz meets Hurrah For Gin but I don’t have a production budget and my kids don’t care about what I’m doing. They just want to keep recording their own sound tests and messing around with Audacity’s editing tools.

At the very least they’ll enter elementary school with basic broadcast journalism skills and I’ll be able to practice my radio voice more often.

First interview is this weekend, stay tuned for details when it’s live and then it’s all systems goooo!

Join our movement. Bring your kids.
