Joyful Courage Podcast

Welcome, friend! I am so happy you have found your way here. My name is Casey O'Roarty, and I am the host of the Joyful Courage Parenting Podcast. I encourage you to poke around and get familiar with all I have to offer!

What the heck is a podcast?

I am so glad you asked! A podcast is like an on-demand radio show that you can subscribe and listen to whenever you want. You control when, where and how you take it in. 

Podcasts are so great, especially for parents, because they allow you to consume the content while also doing other things (read: dishes, laundry, commuting, exercising). You have the freedom to take it in and continue to engage in the other activities of your day!

The Joyful Courage Parenting Podcast is especially amazing because I hand-pick my guests to give you a high-value conversation to listen in on. You will pick up on themes such as the power of relationship, the personal development of parenting, and, of course, lots about Positive Discipline. Beginning in summer of 2017, I started to alternate solo shows in with interviews so that I can speak directly to you, the listener, and offer support around challenges I am seeing come up in our community.

What do people think of the show?

I LOVE this podcast! Casey is warm, funny, and vulnerable. She is not afraid to talk about how messy and scary parenting can be, which is so powerful to hear as a parent in a culture that says we should all be doing it “perfectly.” Through her engaging interviews, she equips us with tools we can use right away to grow our relationship with our children and promote long-term characteristics such as honesty, responsibility, and respect for self and others. I definitely recommend this podcast to parents at any stage who need inspiration, guidance, or to just feel like you aren’t alone in your parenting challenges.

Love, love, love Casey! She is so fresh, fun, and real. Always practical strategies to come away with from every episode. And she lands some pretty amazing guests!!!

Casey is engaging, fun and inspiring. The topics are current and helpful. I love to listening to this podcast during my commute. It reminds me I am not alone, parenting can be sticky and I have support and company while I navigate my imperfect life.

Casey is warm and relatable. She utilizes both her training in Positive Discipline and her experience as a mother to explain ways to approach parenting (and all relationships) in a kind and firm way. She fills her podcasts with useful tools to be a more mindful parent, lots of encouragement, and the opportunity to learn from both her and a wide variety of interesting guests. This podcast is a gem!
