    EP30: Elliot Rae, Music Football Fatherhood

    In today’s episode, I have a conversation with Elliot Rae, founder of Music Football Fatherhood (MFF) - an empowering community of fathers who share their experiences through online conversations, meetups and so much more. I believe BBC called it “the dad’s version of Mumsnet”. That being said, Elliot shares some of his stories that made a huge impact on his life as well as how MFF came to be and why we all ought to buy his latest book Dad.
