Now that you know what the dilly is about this podcast…Wait, what?  You didn’t listen to the welcome episode?  It’s 7 minutes dude.  Go check it out here and circle back.  I’ll wait.

Done?  Awesome.  Now it’s time to get to know Diana Tower {that’s me!} better.

In today’s episode, I turn the microphone reins over to my 5 year old son Jack.  Rather than interviewing myself or finding another adult to do the honours, I thought it would be fun to get Jack in my office nook and see what happened.

As you’ll hear we had a blast.  One thing, the audio might be a bit lower than normal (sorry guys).  Having two people made it harder to get close to the mic.  Anyhoo…let’s dig in.

Jack asked the questions that I will be asking all my guests this season and I’ve listed them below.  I’m also writing the questions below because…well…at times you might not quite understand what my little man is saying!

Also, one more thing. Before you listen to the episode I want to mention that I recorded it just before Christmas, and this year was a challenging holiday.  It was the first Christmas without my Dad (he passed away on Dec 29th 2016) and so you might notice I get a bit choked up when answering the first question “what do you want to be known for?”.

Grief is a funny thing, -as Gladys Ato will explain in her future episode- and I like to roll with it rather than bottle it up.  I wanted to highlight that, but just incase you notice and were wondering why my voice sounds sad and like I’m going to burst into tears any minute…now you know.

It’s not all sad though, so don’t be scared.  It’s a lot of fun and I’m curious to know if you would ever order a “Diana Tower” at a bar.  Have a listen and learn what that drink is (yum) and more about me, your host.  🙂
