Middle Children Need to be Heard!!

     What do you get when you give a Middle Child a microphone and a SoundCloud account? The Official Podcast of the International Middle Child Union. Introducing Pay No Attention to this Podcast, the world's leading Middle Child podcast -- because it's the world's ONLY Middle Child podcast. Sigh.
     You’ve read what it feels like being a Middle Child at the Smack Dab Facebook page, on Twitter @MidKidMusings, and at the Smack Dab Blog. Now you can HEAR what it’s like to feel left out, left alone and left behind -- in stunning HD digital sound! Two episodes are just sitting there waiting for someone to make them feel wanted. Episode 1 provides a basic introduction -- MidKid 101. Episode 2 explores the poem that made me forever aware I was a Middle Child. I also have a chat with Dr. Catherine Salmon, co-author of The Secret Power of Middle Children, and play a round of nobody's favorite game show, Guess the Middle Child.
     The I.M.C.U. is fighting to end Middle Child Syndrome, one Middle Child at a time. And you can help. Please follow, like or subscribe to the podcast. It'll cost you nothing. But to a Middle Child, it means everything. Trust me.
I said, Middle Children
need to be heard!!

ON THIS DAY IN 1931...

     When President Herbert Hoover dedicated New York City’s Empire State Building on May 1, 1931, it marked the official end of a dream for Middle Child Walter Chrysler. He had already begun construction of his iconic Chrysler Building when John J. Raskob of General Motors led a well-heeled group in what would become a competition to see who could build a taller building. Chrysler lost the "mine is bigger than yours" construction contest.  His 1,046 foot erection was a teeny weenie compared to the completed Empire State Building, which soared 1,454 feet to the top of its lightning rod, making it the world’s tallest building until 1972.
