Thoughtful and special
You’re creating a great resource here, Jonathan! Thinking on fatherhood in this way provides me a new perspective, and I am so grateful for that :-)
Cheers, Karen Lock Kolp
I was interviewed for this podcast and when I went back and listened to all the other episodes other than mine, I felt like I was part of a community of great men / Dads, all of whom are out for the same thing: give their children wonderful lives. This is a podcast worth diving into full force. Don't miss a single episode (especially episode 5!!!).
Enjoy and tell everyone you know about Dad: The Podcast!!
