For dads new (and old)

Listening to these 4 fathers/storytellers is like the modern incarnation of “chicken soup for the parenting soul.” As a new father, I’ve found the podcast relevant, educational and greatly entertaining. Keep up the great content, dads!

Great podcast

Just a great group of guys talking about real life as Dad’s and renovating houses! Every episode makes me want to crack a beer and drink on the deck!

UPDATE! 3 years later and still going strong. Still has outstanding parenting stories (good and bad) and the best Merch in the Dad Podcast business!
