‘Tis a good one!

“Funny thoughts and deep talks” sums this podcast up perfectly! I’ve laughed out loud numerous times and have loved that their humor is coupled with thoughtful questions and discussions. And it’s not just for dads! I’m a young lady and still enjoy it! Give it a listen…and welcome to Dadville 😉

God has a sense of humor!

You two are absolutely hilarious, combining great conversations with some of your high school humor. Your guests clearly dig being on your podcast. It’s really hysterical when you and your guests start laughing uncontrollably.

On a deeper level, your conversations with guests share real life relatable experiences - both the joys and the struggles - while trying to live a faith-driven life. Kudos. Keep it up!

Worth listening even though my kid left the nest

What an encouraging and funny podcast for dads! I’m hooked after two episodes.
