Parachute’s podcast, Popping the Bubble Wrap, is focused on the “household safety officer”: the person in a family who worries about safety.

Season 2 of Popping the Bubble Wrap returns on March 19, 2024, with more kitchen table chats with parents and safety experts. Are you the person in your family who worries about the safety of others, about buying safety products and using them? Then this is the podcast for you. Parachute’s CEO Pamela Fuselli hosts monthly episodes, supported by our funding partner, Amazon. We’ll release new episodes throughout the year on the third Tuesday of each month.

We’ve rounded up fantastic parents from coast-to-coast in Canada who have interesting stories to share. We also invite parents who listen to the podcast to share their questions with us by phone or email: 647-776-5123 or
