Welcome to The Career Dad Show!

This podcast is all about supporting modern-day dads. Dads who work hard for a rewarding career... but not at the expense of their family. Dads who want to climb the career ladder, but also want to take the kids to school. Dads who don't want to make a choice between getting promoted, or being a parent. Work. Family. Balance.

In each episode I speak to an amazing guest and focus in on their story. Throughout the series we cover all the topics dads want to talk about: paternity leave, changing jobs, dealing with guilt, concerns about being a present father, working abroad, emigrating, insane commutes, starting a business, coping with loss, smashing down stereotypes… the list goes on.

So go ahead – give it a listen. Enjoy!

I feel like I met a mate down the pub

Great podcast really easy to listen to, I wish my mates were this interesting. I love the relaxed feel and how both individuals are learning stuff.

Enjoyably Informative

Thanks for doing the Career Dad podcast Dan. Helped reflect and review my role as a dad, as well as give me an insight into the shared experiences of other dads.

Looking forward to season two!

Top show, crucial conversations

This podcast covers some really important topics of conversation that dads just haven’t really been having with each other - at least not openly in a professional environment. It’s really reassuring (for dads and mums!) to hear that everyone else is in the same boat and grappling with similar frustrations, pressures and issues - and to be able to help share the load. Very engaging style of presentation - and Career Dad is a brilliant forum for discussion!
