    this podcast was frustrating to listen to on headphones. Terrible audio quality and perhaps the volume of bobblehead dad relative to his expert guests is indicative of his overall vibe. He often cut them off and rather than building on whay they shared, took the discussion in his own direction. A few good tidbits, but even the 60 seconds of tips for adjusting discipline is primarily him giving anecdotal stories. That was one of the primary reasons kept listening, and was left feeling disappointed.
