This Is Us Too: A This Is Us Podcast explores the triumphs, mistakes, and tragedies of The Pearsons.

We discuss, analyze, interpret and even criticize all things related to This Is Us and include as much listener feedback as possible. We dive deep into our favorite family on television (warts and all), and also how we relate to the show on a personal level. Be on the look out our favorite moments of the show, our personal stories, and how many tissues we have to go through. While in season, This Is Us Too is a weekly podcast. Out of season, it is primarily produced on a monthly basis.

Show Synopsis: Rebecca Pearson once had a difficult pregnancy with triplets. The resulting births occurred on the same day as her husband Jack Pearson’s thirty-sixth birthday. The lives of Rebecca, Jack and their three offspring – Kevin, Kate and Randall – are presented at different points in time. The Rebecca and Jack stories generally take place during the early stage of their marriage, surrounding the birth of the three children, or at different phases of the children’s upbringing, which was not always smooth sailing for any of the five. Separate stories concerning Kevin, Kate and Randall are also presented in their adult years, each who has his or her own baggage resulting from that upbringing. These stories may demonstrate the emotional ties that exist not only because of being family, but also because of four of them having the same birthday and some of them having always been together, meaning since conception.
