Hello! Welcome to Eddy.

As dads, we always want to believe we can do anything and everything to protect our children. But sometimes, really hard or painful things happen that just aren’t in our control. Suddenly, we’re in a situation we never imagined would exist.  Talking about difficult times as a dad isn’t always easy, but hearing about how other men got through them and moved forwards really helps. The Eddy Podcast is a series of conversations between dads who’ve faced difficult times as parents. Hosted by the founder of Eddy, Scott Jackson, who’s been through his own trauma as a parent, these podcasts give fathers a place where they can share their stories and offer words of guidance and hope to others.  The Eddy Podcast is run by Eddy – a non-profit organisation for fathers going through difficult times as parents. It’s a space where experiences can be shared, listened to or read – helping us to keep moving forwards, together.
