Jumping Monkeys was a netcast on the TWiT Network that was about parenting in the digital age. Hosted by Leo Laporte and Megan Morrone, the show featured interviews with toy makers, moms, and others, featured a segment called "Spend, Save, Give" which recommended items to spend your money on, save a buck on or something which gives back to the community, and also played voice messages with the email. Between segments both Leo and Megan would talk about their experience in parenting and kids, both having parental experience and kids.
On December 11, 2008, the show was put into a one year hiatus as Megan wanted to spend more time with her kids. It was reported on Megan Morrone's blog that she wasn't returning to the show.
