We're on episode 4 of Season 2 for Future dads club! I'm surprised it's still going, I'm publishing weekly, but a lot of the content is stuff I managed to record a few months ago. Most recently I split the recording of my wife's birth experience into a three parter. I also roped in, albiet willingly, a friend and recorded his future dad experience at 4 months, 8 months, and 6 weeks after the birth of his child.
Editing the episodes, was really interesting, and I realized these aural time capsules are really precious. The changes we undergo physically, and psychologically are fairly unique, whether we're birthing, adopting, or fostering children. The demands we make on ourselves, in this period of transitioning to have including one more life in our daily routines are fairly unique.
I'd say it's fairly similar to what one undergoes when forming a new habit, except there are a multitude of habits, patterns and change we're undertaking all at once.
I would like to interview more future dads, and offer them the opportunity to build their own time capsule. It's just guys don't really talk, so if you know a future dad, please send them my way!
