I was listening to a very interesting episode of Freakonomics Radio the other day (OK, really, they’re all interesting – it’s a great podcast). The question posed was do our kids owe us something for raising them? Not something intangible like love and gratitude, but do they owe us cash?
We also discuss how moms are using YouTube. That’s a question I have a big interest in because for a while I tried to make money from sponsored YouTube videos. I would offer a video in all of my sponsored post negotiations. And you know what? Nobody is hiring moms in a big way to make sponsored videos, because moms aren’t watching other moms. Moms are watching based on the subject and the quality of the videos, not based on who is on the video. Which was bad news for me, and I just went back to making my own videos and putting ads on them.
And of course, we all had our Bytes of the Week! And I’m totally buying Andrea’s suggestion, because my memory sucks.
This week was also fun, because we were the very first podcast to record in this pretty new CBS Radio studio. It totally had that new studio smell. And I absolutely love the retro decorations on the wall!
So please give our 40th (!) episode a listen, and I’d love to hear from you – on any of our topics, or on topics you’d like us to talk about!
