About the Show

The all-too-cute story about how this podcast was born!

Five Minutes With Dad is the brainchild of a 4-year-old boy named Pavlos.

Pavlos is a pretty cool kid. And a very creative one.

One winter day in 2014 he overheard his father, Nick, talking about the new podcast he was planning.

It all started with an innocent question:

Pavlos: What’s that?

Dad: What’s, what?

Pavlos: That thing you said you were starting?

Dad: A podcast?

Pavlos: Yeah, that.

Dad: Well, it’s like a show that Daddy’s going to record and put on the computer.

Pavlos: Why?

Dad: Well, because Daddy wants to help people with their businesses and families. And if I record enough shows it can also help our family make more money so we can give, save, and spend more on things that are important and fun.

Pavlos: Can I do a show?

Dad: Sure. What do you want to do a show about?

Pavlos: With you.

Dad: With me? That sounds awesome. But what do you want to talk about?

Pavlos: I don’t know. But I can help people, too.

Dad: I bet you can! Sure, let’s do a show.

Pavlos: Can we make money on our show, too, so I can save up to buy a flying car?

Dad: Sure. We sure can, Pavlos.

Pavlos: Thanks!

And that’s how our podcast was born.

His two-year-old sister, Angela, joined us as our “special guest” on several episodes before taking over as co-host soon thereafter!

I’m pretty sure she holds the record for youngest podcast host at two years old… 🙂

How we got our logo
On September 20, 2013, Pavlos had “bring your dad to school” day in Hoboken, New Jersey. At the beginning of the day, the teacher told them to pick a marker and draw a picture of themselves and how they feel this morning.

Pavlos grabbed a red marker and drew a piture of himself flying through the air and smiling from eyeball to eyeball!

Needless to say, my heart melted… It was an easy choice to be our log.

We want you and your kids to feel the same way every time you see our logo.

To this day, every time Pavlos or Angela see the logo they recognize it as Pavlos with a “Hey, that’s me!” or “Hey, that’s Pavlos!”

Too cute!
