Kidspot.com.au has today launched an all new series of The Juggling Act – a weekly podcast for working parents, hosted by journalist and television host Sarah Harris and Kidspot.com.au editor Melissa Wilson.
Honest, funny and informative, The Juggling Act podcast series will be a must listen for every working parent.
Each week, Sarah Harris and Melissa Wilson (featured image), two busy and relatable mums, will open up to listeners about the parenting and work challenges they’re facing.
They will speak with experts on issues ranging from family finances and legal rights around returning to work, to helping your child settle into care and how on earth to put a healthy meal on the table at the end of the day – that everyone will actually eat.
Wilson said: “Returning to work as a mum can be a difficult process to navigate, not to mention emotionally conflicting.
“We identified a lack of support for women in this stage of their life and wanted to offer a podcast to let them know they’re not alone.
“Sarah Harris is the perfect person to do that!
“She’s honest and open about the highs and lows of being a working parent.
“We will also chat with other high-profile working parents about how they juggle their day, stay sane and not lose their job.
“It’s the ultimate juggling act and no one does it better than mums.”
Harris said: “Being a mum is the best job in the world – but the juggle can be a struggle!
“I can’t wait to be part of this podcast with Kidspot.com.au which will focus on really honest, and sometimes hilarious, conversations about the work/life balance… or at least our pursuit of it!”
Each episode of the podcast will be supported on Kidspot.com.au with extensive editorial coverage from experts including Belinda Williams, psychologist at The Bumpy Road; Dr Sam Hay; Alison Dutton, principal lawyer at Labour Pains Legal; and Canna Campbell author of Mindful Money.
All content will be shared across Kidspot.com.au social channels.
The Juggling Act podcast featuring Sarah Harris and Melissa Wilson launches on Wednesday 24 July, with a new episode being released each week.
The podcast is produced by the Kidspot.com.au team.
The project is one of many podcasts created by NewsCast – News Corp Australia’s podcasting arm, announced at the company’s Come Together 2019 showcase.
