Two Doting Dads is a podcast series that follows the parenting escapades of two good mates, Matty J and Ash Wicks. Like all good modern relationships, they met on Instagram and instantly bonded over the fact that they were both sleep-deprived Dads doing their best to dote over their two children. They share a very laid-back style to parenting, they don't pretend to be experts and they celebrate every single parenting mishap (which there are plenty). If you're listening for parenting advice, you've come to the wrong podcast.

    #71 Surviving Daycare Disasters and Weekend Sweet Treats

    Matt shared the chaotic morning when he took the girls to daycare looking like little rats, only to realize it was the worst possible day for it. But it’s not all chaos—Matt also shares the romantic highlights of his weekend trip to Byron Bay, where he managed to get some sexy time, not once, but twice!

    Meanwhile, Ash dives into the intriguing dynamics of grandparent preferences, as Oscar favors Poppa for daycare pickups.  

    Plus, the guys tackle the hilariously awkward moments when kids learn new words, featuring Macy's adorable mispronunciations.

    #70 UFC Dad Alex Volkanovski On Why Parenting Is Tougher Than The Octagon

    Alex Volkanovski says parenting makes UFC fighting feel like a walk in the park. 

    Well, we won't be jumping into the ring with the bloke anytime soon!

    UFC former lightweight world champ, Alex Volkanovski is known as Alexander the Great in the octagon but is also a doting dad to three young daughters: Ariana (9), Airlie (7), and Reign (8 months). 

    Standing by his side is his high school sweetheart, Emma, who has helped Volk balance the intense world of MMA with the equally demanding role of being a loving father and husband.

    #68 Toddlers And Maple Syrup Do Not Mix

    Ash has made a mistake this week that you only make once as a parent: accidentally picking up the wrong kid from daycare.  

    Meanwhile, Macy, always one to keep us on our toes, has developed a new and unique sleeping habit. 

    Matty J has taken a moment away from parenting kids who don't want pancakes to audition for a big-time opportunity. Keep your fingers and toes crossed, people!

Best podcast!

I absolutely love you and your podcast. I listen to you on the way to work and on the way home from work everyday. Can’t wait for many more episodes to come!

Emmalilly93 ,

YES!

So excited to add this to my podcast collection! Brilliant work boys!

Came for Matt, stayed for Ash

I’m mostly joking. I started listening as I enjoyed hearing Matt’s side of Laura’s anecdotes in Life Uncut, but now just love the podcast in its own right. Thanks for helping me see the funny side of the wild ride that is parenting!
