Expectant Dad Travis Gets Answers To Pregnancy And Parenting Questions From Brown University Economics Professor And Author, Emily Oster!
This podcast was recorded before COVID-19 became a pandemic and earlier in my wife, Parris’ pregnancy. I sit down with Brown University Economics Professor, Emily Oster. She is the author of two wonderful books my wife and I are huge fans of, “Expecting Better” and “Crib Sheet”. These books take an economic-based, scientifically studied, data-driven approach to pregnancy and parenting during early childhood. They take a look at things you can do to optimize pregnancy and have a happy baby. I realized speaking to Emily how important it is to really look at the data when making important decisions that are often clouded by myth and misinformation. In this podcast, we surprise my wife Parris who joins in with a few questions of her own. You don’t have to be an expectant parent or the parent of a new baby to appreciate the advice that Emily offers in this episode. My hope is that by the end of the podcast anyone who listens will start thinking about how they can apply her lessons in their own life, whether it’s a pregnancy, parenting or any other risk-reward decision people make in everyday life.
