The New Normal Podcast The podcast for multitasking parents - a casual discussion about everything and anything pertaining to life as working parents.

Our newest podcast is with Victoria’s Small Business Commissioner Judy O’Connell who has TWO SETS OF TWINS *faints*.

This basically qualifies her to run the whole damn country, in our opinion.

Judy has had a long career in the public service, including as Assistant Commissioner at the Australian Tax Office, where she set up an in-house childcare centre. Throughout her career, Judy has been a champion for flexible work for both mums and dads, and for integrating family life with career.

She also told us all about the cool things the Victorian Small Business Commission does, including help with dispute resolution, tax requirements, mediation and advocating for small businesses.

Laura Vickers is a lawyer and mum of two who has carved out a niche for herself in the legal world with her practice Nest Legal based in Melbourne. She explains to us why it’s important to have the difficult conversations around who will look after your kids if you die, who gets your assets and what songs you want played at your funeral.

Her practice focusses on families, wills, tax and property conveyancing, and strives to be a family-friendly little hamlet in the decidedly unfamily-friendly legal world.

We learn that pre-nups are not as big a deal as we thought, that the wills you buy at the post office probably aren’t comprehensive enough and a handy recipe for Sausage Slurry, which ticks all our boxes for easy, fast, healthy and good for little tummies.
