ChetCast: Season 4


Season 4 (2021)

A short-form podcast about my life as a stay-at-home dad, starring my three kids. My goal for this microcast is to capture the sounds of my children’s cute voices, talk about our adventures, and introduce them to the joys of podcasting and storytelling. Fair warning: there’s lots of dead air.
