In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Hey dudes. Wife just told me that we’re having a boy. Big, big news, so excited about a future potential Power Athlete joining The Crew. Question, at least five years ago you talked about on a podcast with Romanov about crawling and not swaddling. I am just wondering what the updated version of the Summers/Welbourn development plan?

Who’s The Man That Did That To You?!

Expecting parent calls into PA Radio with a burning question: What is this Luke Summers’ parenting “system” he is always talking about and what is Welbourn’s baby Power Athlete development plan?

John, Luke, and Tex analyzes baby accessories to determine if they’re shortcuts and hacks to make parent’s life easier or assist in a child’s development. Swaddling, strollers, and baby monitors on blast! The only accessory safe this episode: immune boosting and floor cleaning, dogs. Following the baby talk, The Crew enters in long-term youth athletic development through sport selection.
