The Introductory episode to the Daddy Unscripted side subset of episodes called We’re Here Alone Together aka W.H.A.T.
As I was recording a Live Youtube video on April 11, a vague notion I had became a solid plan. I was talking about “how are we coping with this new world right now” with Aaron and Apple from the No Simple Road podcast and Mike Finoia from the Amigos podcast. You can watch that video on the Osiris Media youtube channel, by the way.
I had already completed my 2-part episodes called “Love In The Time Of Covid”. As an “essential worker”, and one who manages a staff of 40+ other essential workers, this time has been very impactful for me. I have really had to take on the task of being very mindful of my own emotions and mindset. Not only am I also responsible for my wife and two kids, but I feel the weight of that responsibility for all of the people at my work, as well.
I’ve talked with a lot of people during this time and I’ve heard a myriad of stories of how people’s lives have changed and are being affected. I think it’s important, now more than ever, for us to talk openly about things. Communication is so meaningful to us, as humans. And, now, that is being put to the test. Whether it’s because we are in some semblance of quarantine or shelter-in-place in our homes… or because, when we are out in the world, for a lot of us, we are wearing masks.
So, I decided to explore what’s going on in people’s lives right now. All kinds of people, from a myriad of backgrounds and locations. And, quite exciting for me: this is opening up the podcast to my talking to ANYONE. Yep… not just Dads, but Moms too. And not just parents, really, either. So, don’t be surprised if I take this opportunity to record with a lot more women than men for this little podcast side-road.
I hope you’ll join all of us on this journey. I expect to learn a lot about the human spirit, new ways that some of us can cope and help our family members through this time as well as gaining some perspective on what some of us may be going through and locking arms with other lovely humans.
As I say in each episode: for anyone who may need help during any difficult times: the National Suicide Prevention hotline: (800) 273-8255. Also, I have a Google Voice Number for ANY of you to use: (872) 444-6784. Leave me a message there and I will get in touch with you… or you can even just use that as a safe place to vent or whatever it may be.
