A helpful and inspirational discovery
The Dad Mindset podcast has been such an awesome find for me as father of 2 young boys, husband and working in a demanding job (and generally flying by the seat of my pants the whole time!). The guests have many great ideas and the personal sharing is inspirational. Thanks Rich for seeing the value and sharing it in an engaging way
- you’ve got skills man! I am definitely a better dad for it.
Highly engaging and such raw conversations make you feel humbled to be the listener. Realising that no two parenting situations are the same, nor the children, or us as humans, makes this podcast so valuable to learn that we are all doing our best to bring out the best in our parenting from the lives we are leading. I applaud the dads who give over their stories so candidly to Rich, and a must listen for any dads out there who are navigating their own journey into parenthood
Relatable, engaging and helpful
Move over Richard Fidler, there's another Richard in my podcasts now!
My new favourite show. As a new mum, I'm thoroughly enjoying listening to The Dad Mindset. Engaging interviews with such mindful dads. Can't recommend it enough :)
