Parenthetical Science is creating a podcast where parenting myths and mommy wars come to die.

Being a parent is tough. It's sometimes hard to keep kids alive, much less turn them into decent human beings. But often, it's harder than it needs to be. Parents stress about all kinds of things, and it can easily become overwhelming. Our goal is to help parents worry less, because many of their fears are unwarranted. In this podcast, we take a rational, evidence-based look at a variety of topics, discussing them with experts in each area.

Here's who we are:

Natalie Newell
Natalie is the director and producer of the Science Moms documentary, and former producer and co-host of The Science Enthusiast Podcast. Natalie holds a M.Ed. and worked for a decade in the field of Montessori education before choosing to become a stay-at-home parent, while simultaneously pursuing her interests in the areas of science communication and secular activism.

She has passed on some of her genetic material to two boys (who were still alive last time she checked).

Chad Hayes, MD
Chad is a pediatrician, currently practicing outpatient pediatrics and caring for newborns in the hospital. He started his blog, Demystifying Pediatrics, with the goal of helping parents make rational decisions about their children's health. He developed an interest in combating pseudoscience when he learned how ridiculous homeopathy really is, and things kinda took off from there. His writing has been featured in The Washington Post, Newsweek, KevinMD, and The Scientific Parent (as well as his middle school newspaper).

He provides financial and emotional support for his wife and three girls of varying ages but remarkably similar physical characteristics.
