Welcome to the Adventures with Grammy Podcast. I am your host, Carolyn Berry.
My guest for Episode 73 is Greg Payne, the host of the Cool-Grandpa podcast. At 48, Greg learned he soon would become a grandfather. He felt a bit panicky. He didn’t know a thing about being a grandfather, so he asked questions and embarked on a journey to build a community for grandfathers. I began our conversation by asking him about his podcast.

Greg Payne recently became a grandpa. He says this on his website:
Truth be told, this was a mixed event. On one hand, I was excited for my son and daughter-in-law to present this news to me. On the other hand, I felt that I was too young to become a grandpa. At the tender age of 48, I was just starting to figure out my elbow from a hole in the ground.
What did I know about being a grandpa?
Not much. Like being a husband, I had seen some good examples and plenty of bad examples of being a husband. The same holds true for being a grandpa.
I have found that in most books, movies, tv shows, etc. grandpas are often just afterthoughts, jokes, or villains. I am all of those things and at the same time NONE of those things.
I thought that a community of grandpas that had real-life experiences as sons, husbands, fathers, and most importantly Grandfathers needed to be built.
So, here we are.
The interviews, stories, wisdom, and follies that will be gathered here are from ordinary grandfathers. Some of these grandfathers you might have heard of before and many are going to be friends that you meet for the first time.
Our conversations might be casual but our thoughts, perspectives, and takeaways are jewels that I hope make a difference to you.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE ON THIS JOURNEY…YOU HAVE A TRIBE OF GRANDFATHERS WALKING ARM AND ARM WITH YOU.
At the end of the day, we are all trying to figure this thing out as we go.
