You might know John Moltz as a person on the Internet. Many people do! However, he also appears in other guises, sometimes as a large, golden bull and others as a phalanx of beautiful swans! Usually, however, he appears as a guy working at a desk. Other important points that John Moltz would like to share:
- John Moltz is fluent in English and conversational in two other languages.
- John Moltz is the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. He’s fast enough for you, old man.
- John Moltz is actually made up of thousands of smaller John Moltzes, all furiously working tiny little gears to keep the larger construct you know as “John Moltz” functioning.
- John Moltz is a little too comfortable talking about himself in the third person.
Jon Armstrong is a long time blogger at the barely alive Blurbomat, a UX/UI consultant, a web/business developer, a photographer and the impetus for this show. In a past life he executive produced a popular blog and ran the business. Yes, business. Turning This Car Around marks Armstrong’s first foray into podcasting.

Jon splits time between Brooklyn, New York and Salt Lake City, Utah. Armstrong has two wonderful and amazing biological children and two also wonderful almost-stepchildren.
On this episode, the dads talk about becoming a dad. Ch-ch-ch-changes!
That's a David Bowie song, right?
Once again the whole free-range kids thing comes up and it comes up early.
Speaking of changes, since becoming a father, John cries while watching Finding Nemo.
Jon and Lex recommend The Expectant Father.
The dads recommend wills and starting to save for college five years before you were born. Not the kid, you.
Lex laments no longer being able to binge-watch shows like House of Cards. Still, we can binge-watch shows like Clone Wars and Adventure Time.
All the dads recommend therapy. Like that wasn't obvious.
