Episode transcript

Gretchen: Rachel!

Rachel: Gretchen!

Gretchen: Are you ready for Season 5?

Rachel: Very exciting.

Gretchen: Woohoo! So let's get started.

From the Understood Podcast Network, this is "In It." I'm Gretchen Vierstra.

Rachel: And I'm Rachel Bozek.

Gretchen: And we are so excited to announce the start of a new season of "In It."

Rachel: We've got a bunch of excellent conversations lined up, along with the stories and expert advice you've come to expect from this podcast. So, Gretchen, any upcoming episodes you want to highlight here?

Gretchen: One I'm really excited about is actually on assistive technology. And I'm excited about it because it's something that can be great for our kids. And a lot of us don't even know what it is. What about you, Rachel?

Rachel: I am really looking forward to one of our first episodes for the new season, where we're going to talk about getting our heads into the game for the new school year.

And we have an episode coming up where we'll be talking about puberty and ADHD, which I think will be super interesting for a lot of families.

Join us. Season 5 starts in just a few days. Follow us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts, to make sure you never miss an episode.
