Parachute’s new podcast, Popping the Bubble Wrap, is focused on the “household safety officer”: the person in a family who worries about safety.
Hosted by Parachute’s President and CEO Pamela Fuselli, each episode in our first season features a roundtable of parents who talk about an injury topic they worry about. Both they and the listeners learn more – like why it’s so damn difficult to install a car seat correctly!
The approach is informal, chatty and humourous. After the parents’ conversation, an expert joins Pamela to discuss what they heard, dispelling myths and giving advice or answering questions the parents may have.
We’ve rounded up fantastic parents from coast-to-coast in Canada who have interesting stories to share. We also invite parents who listen to the podcast to share their questions with us by phone or email: 647-776-5123 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Popping the Bubble Wrap can be found anywhere you listen to podcasts such as Apple or Spotify.Make sure to use the hashtag #PoppingTheBubbleWrap when you share the podcast with others on social media. A new episode will be released every second Thursday, starting Sept. 8, 2022, with a holiday break in late December, then resuming Jan. 12, 2023 and wrapping June 1, 2023.
