Pat O.D. ,

This show is a lot of fun!

Zach and his guests do a great job of entertaining and informing the audience. This is a lighthearted show with tidbits of knowledge for creatives of all kinds.

If you want to have an easy and fun listen and learn some stuff along the way, this is the podcast for you.

Finally something different!

This podcast pushes the limit and really invites their guest to be vulnerable and express their struggles and solution on how to keep a balance between writing and other responsibilities.

As an indie author, is really hard to find good quality content that isn’t repetitive. Every podcast seems to be echoing each other. But the Creator Dad is different. With the interview style, Zach and the guest, touch on a really personal aspect of being a writer: how to balance that with other responsibilities like family, a full time job, economic responsibilities, etc. All these have been in my mind since I started writing but I never thought of really chatting about it with other writers because its such a personal thing to ask. But thanks to Zach, I don't have to, I can learn from the open hearted conversations this men and women will have, and hopefully, gain new strategies that I can apply to my own life.

Can’t wait for the next episode!
