It all starts with the assumption that your kids have good intentions and want to do the right thing, says Becky Kennedy, a psychologist and host of the Good Inside parenting podcast.

Ultra-athlete Rich Roll talks with 2x Olympian Des Linden & Josh Cox about Des' historic Boston Marathon victory & the mindset that propels her storied career.
I hear today is Podcast Day. And to celebrate, Harvard has a story which
acknowledges that much of the early work of podcasting happened there. It's true, but I think the story, and the role that Harvard played, and others, is somehow lost.
So I recorded a 20-minute re-telling of the tale of podcasting, from my point of view. Starting with my meeting with Adam Curry in 2000 in NYC, early experiments with Grateful Dead music, Berkman, BloggerCon, Chris Lydon, with a hat-tip to Doug Kaye and Steve Gillmor who were also doing early podcasts at the same time.
Then to the summer of 2004, when I started Morning Coffee Notes, and proved that someone who isn't a radio star can make something interesting enough to listen to, and that roughly is when the idea really started to take off. Adam's Daily Source Code came in August, then Trade Secrets, the iPodder mail list, the term podcasting, Tony Kahn and WGBH, and the first 20 podcasts. Someone should make a list and put those names on a wall, because when they started, that's when podcasting really was ready to go. All the previous steps were necessary, the technology, the idea of a series of interviews, the talk show format, and the involvement of NPR.
Harvard provided an environment where this could happen, where the people could come together. I would say you have to credit Charlie Nesson, Jon Zittrain and John Palfrey for setting up that environment, trusting us to do something good with it. I remember the day I started there, they gave me a key to the office so I could use it any time I wanted. JP got me the space I needed for BloggerCon and the Thursday evening meetups, and helped explain what we were doing to the other parts of the university that wondered if all this would lead to something worth doing. Now we can close the loop, clearly Harvard feels it was. So we should do more of it! Let's keep digging. A campus like Harvard's is an incredible experimental kitchen for cooking up new stuff like podcasting.
PS: As with all my podcasts this one is imperfect. The last minute or so was cut off. How did it happen? No clue! But the story is still there, and I think it's a good one.

Lex was traveling this week so we have a guest, one John Gruber. He’s apparently some guy in the Internet.
Not coincidentally, this is our longest episode ever.
What was the deal with bearer bonds back in the 1980s movies? They were basically what every villain was after. In the upcoming SPECTRE, it’s probably something else.
Don’t take the kids to see American Sniper for the holidays. We talk again about our Frozen experiences.
A holiday trip to FAO Schwarz seems dicey but if you’re in Manhattan how can you not? Also, Dylan’s Candy Bar. Oh, man.
Playmobil has some great robbery sets that Gruber and Moltz speak highly of. Their kids might, too. Not sure.
Moltz’s kid is getting a PC laptop for Christmas and Moltz is already having trouble with it.
Moltz wants to know if Jon’s and Gruber’s kids are getting his Minecraft book for Christmas.
Gruber’s kid might be getting a Playstation 4 with LEGO Batman 3 and FIFA Soccer.
Jon’s kids might be getting Minecraft for Playstation. One wants an Easy-Bake oven.
If you don’t follow the Grubers on Twitter, they had an interesting time setting up their Christmas tree this year.
Moltz’s tree contribution is putting up his Star Trek ornaments. He doesn’t have this one but it’s on his wish list.
Follow us: @ttcashow. Lex Friedman can be found @lexfri, John Moltz can be found @Moltz and Jon Armstrong is @blurb. You can also follow John Gruber here: @gruber or @daringfireball

Merlin Mann was part of You Look Nice Today. That show is so good, he could have just stoped making cool stuff after it was finished. He didn’t. He keeps making awesome things. We talked about them. And other stuff. Whom is Casey Liss?
