In this episode of the podcast Joe provides you with an extra special "rewind" edition of the podcast. Instead of providing a "Best of" episode or replaying an older episode again, we bring you a previous episode of a different podcast, This is Parenting.

Joe was a guest on this podcast back in June, 2019. Joe was fortunate enough to be a guest on this podcast and share his personal parenting journey. Though the podcast is no longer active, we hope sharing it here allows the podcast to live on.

Take a listen as we rewind the clock back to 2019!

About this episode of the This is Parenting Podcast

Joe is a dad of two living in Texas and is a host of his own show about parenting called the Dtalks podcast. I really enjoyed having Joe on the show because he brought some really interesting perspectives and topics up that I think you are going to love. He shares about how he’s always wanted to be a dad, even having names picked out for his future kids when he was in high school. With all that enthusiasm, Joe looked for parenting resources to help him prepare for baby number one. But found that almost everything was geared towards moms or played into the bumbling idiot dad trope.

So he started his own show to tackle the issues dads were coming to him with. We talk about a few of those issues in todays episode like how to effectively communicate with your partner, Joe’s unique concern about social media, and his favorite piece of advice to give to new dads. A big thank you to Joe for coming on the show. I’ve linked up his podcast in the show notes at This Is Parenting Podcast .com but be sure to search DTalks podcast on your favorite player.

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to world famous author Heidi Murkoff. They discuss her book "What to Expect When You're Expecting", how she has grown her brand from one book to an entire "What to Expect" brand, and the current focus on #BumpDay

Enjoy!

About Heidi Murkoff

It all started with a baby and a book. Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You’re Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she couldn’t find answers in the books she turned to for much-needed advice.

Just hours before delivering her daughter Emma, Heidi delivered the proposal for a pregnancy guide that would help other expectant parents sleep better at night. She was a mom on a mission — a mission that was only getting started.

Dubbed the “pregnancy bible,” What to Expect When You’re Expecting has more than 22 million copies in print. Now in its 5th edition, the book hit a publishing milestone in June of 2015 when it became the longest-running title of all time on The New York Times bestseller list, a record it still holds. USA Today has named it one of the most influential books in a quarter century — also reporting that it is read by 93 percent of women who read a pregnancy book.

About #BumpDay

In 2015, The What to Expect Project debuted the social campaign #BumpDay with founding partners International Medical Corps1,000 Days and the United Nations Foundation Universal Access Project and in collaboration with WhatToExpect.com. The campaign celebrates beautiful bumps and healthy pregnancies around the world, while raising awareness about the urgent need to end maternal deaths and to advocate for improved maternal-health care both in the U.S. and globally. #BumpDay encourages moms to post photos of their bumps while sharing messages of support for moms – and has generated hundreds of thousands of posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, including from such influencers as Olivia Wilde, Christy Turlington, Coco Rocha, Brooklyn Decker, Pharrell Williams, TV personalities Sarah Haines, Jessica Moore, and Jenni Pulos, as well as numerous policymakers.

The total reach across all social platforms for #BumpDay 2018 was over 33 million. In 2020, #BumpDay received mentions from Forbes and the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, and numerous leading domestic and global health entities and organizations were actively involved, among them the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, March of Dimes, the National Partnership for Women & Families, the National Association of County Health Officials, mothers2mothers, Project Hope, the Hunger Project, Pathfinder International, and Jhpiego.

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to Dr. Deborah Pope about the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, the EJK Awards, an upcoming documentary, and the importance of representation in children's literature. Specifically representation in books that 'celebrate childhood'.

Enjoy!

About Dr. Deborah Pope

During her tenure as Executive Director, Deborah Pope has focused the work and mission of the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation on increasing diversity in children’s literature and enriching the quality of public education.

Through her efforts, the Ezra Jack Keats Book Award is recognized internationally as an imprimatur of quality children’s books for a diverse audience. She has shaped the EJK Bookmaking Competition in New York City into a program easily transferred to school districts across the country; increased the national impact of the EJK Mini-Grants Program; and developed the Foundation website into an invaluable, wide-ranging resource for families, educators and researchers.

Deborah was co-executive producer of the Amazon Snowy Day Holiday Special which premiered in 2016, earned two Daytime Emmys®, two Kidscreen Awards and a BAFTA nomination. Her campaign to create postage stamps honoring Ezra succeeded in 2017, when the USPS issued a series of four stamps with scenes from The Snowy Day.

Deborah came to the Foundation from an extensive career in theatre and arts-in-education. She was Founding Artistic Director of The New Theatre of Brooklyn (TNT), an award-winning regional theatre for which she developed an enriched arts-in-education program. She consulted on arts-in-education programming for the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and Department of Education, served on granting panels for the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York Drama League, and was a board member of of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (ART/NY) and the Roundtable Coalition of Arts-in-Education Providers.

About The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation

The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation was incorporated in 1964, with Ezra as President and his lifelong friend, Martin Pope, as Secretary, and remained private until Ezra’s death, in 1983. His will directed that the Foundation use the royalties from his books for social good. It was left to his successors to decide how best to carry out his wishes.

With Ezra’s royalties, Martin Pope and his late wife, Lillie Pope, who became President and Vice President of the Foundation, focused their efforts on a population especially dear to Ezra: children. During his impoverished boyhood, the public schools where he won prizes in art and the public libraries where he learned about the world were lifelines that allowed him to dream of success. Through the support of its programs, the Foundation gives generations of children the same kind of opportunities, and hopefully, to a lifetime of learning, a love of reading and a belief in themselves.

About the EJK Awards

Now celebrating its 35th Anniversary, the Ezra Jack Keats Award was created to nurture illustrators and writers, early in their careers, who create extraordinary books that reflect our diverse population, the universal experience of childhood and the strength of family. Over the years the EJK has succeeded in fostering the early careers of many of our country’s leading children’s book makers.
