The Our Bird Has Flown Podcast is about our topsy-turvy inverted home and family lifestyle, and the launch of our son to college. We talk about full-time fatherhood, women executives and breadwinners, education from kindergarten to college. We interview each other and have plenty of special guests.

Having worked with and known Paul for years, I've always been impressed (and sometimes exhausted) by his freakishly abundant creative energy and seemingly inexhaustible curiosity for life.. be it food, music, photography, technology, tacos, motorcycles, movies or art. Pair that with a sharp, discerning critic's eye, a natural flair for writing and you have a guy who was born to podcast. Oh and throw in good dash of Indra, his execptionally talented wife, for good measure and you have the perfect foil / compliment and dynamic duo for a well balanced podcast. I'm glad he's finally found a platform as big and unlimited as his personality and am excited to see where it goes.
As parents to two teenagers, this podcast is so relevant and helpful! We love the content, the humor, the easy rapport and the great content. Really well done, high production quality, and facts we can use to plan for our impending future!
