We had such a fun time chatting with Mary Larsen. She and her husband Blake recently launched the ParentCast podcast. It's a podcast dedicated to new parents, new babies, and their new lives together. Mary and Blake do a great job of bringing on informative guests, hosting round-table discussions on even the most taboo parenting topics, and being completely open and transparent about their lives as parents. Not only is Mary a talented podcaster, blogger, and TV personality, she's also just the nicest, funniest lady on the block! Be sure to listen to the very end to find out how our mutual love of Pat Flynn brought us together and why Mary congratulated Sarah on her new “baby”!
