David Atwood and Julia Child

 it was a great experience. I was very lucky. I was in the right place at the right time. Suddenly I was the director for the new series in color and I was on my way to France for seven weeks, and wow.

David Atwood

In 1965, David Atwood graduated from the University of Maine in Orono with a degree in history and government. But fate would send him off in a different direction. He had worked one summer at WCSH-TV and discovered that he loved working in television.

After graduation, David moved to Boston and got a job at the Public Television Station WGBH, which was the same station that aired the immensely popular cooking show The French Chef, with Julia Child.

In this episode of the Catching Your Memories podcast, David shares his memories of not only directing The French Chef in the studio in the early 70s but also going to France with Julia to film some on-location segments.

Keegan Albaugh/Dad Guild Catching Your Memories

Keegan Albaugh, from Burlington, Vermont, always knew he wanted to be a dad. He and his partner Stephanie happily welcomed their first child in 2016 and their second in 2018. Fatherhood has been as wonderful and as joyful as Keegan thought it might be. He also knew there would be challenges, but what he didn't realize is the lack of resources and support for new dads in his community. Stephanie had several resources at her disposal, but Keegan found nothing that met his needs. Today, new dads in Vermont have a multi-faceted resource called Dad Guild. My guest on today's episode of Catching Your Memories is Dad Guild's Executive Director — none other than Keegan Albaugh.
