    Miles Adcox: Hair Made for Netflix

    We are lucky to have Miles Adcox return to Dadville. When we first welcomed Miles, he was a new dad, and that appearance was so transformative for Miles he decided to have another child. Miles' list of occupations is a mile long (dad joke), but his work with emotional wellness is significant. Listen in as he gives tangible advice that can help anyone to better understand their emotions and communicate with others.

Hilarious, Encouraging Podcast

There are lots of comedy based podcasts out there, but this is the first comedy podcast that also leaves me feeling more excited to be a dad and husband. Dave and Jon have a casual demeanor to where it feels like I’m just sitting in the room with them talking and sharing in conversation with them. The guests have been interesting and incredibly insightful (Stephen James especially). This is officially my favorite podcast and I can’t stop telling other people I know about it and something I’ve learned. Thank you both!

**Update: y’all have introduced me to several of my favorite speakers authors, including these people: Chip (Chippy) Dodd, David Thomas, Stephen James, Curt Thompson, Al Andrews, Sissy Goff.

The impact you all have had on me through your own stories - especially with Chip Dodd - and the guests you have hosted has been huge. Thank you for doing this podcast.

Favorite new podcast. I feel seen and I laugh so much.

Love you both, your music, and your heart. What a blessing to a dad and pastor in his 40’s.
Listened to the Shane and Shane episode. All the feels and nostalgia and all the same comments and questions. Like y’all were reading my mind and sayin what I would have said.
They were major in my life when I came to faith and started leading worship and even during my time in the industry in Nashville in the 2000s.
Now a church planter and pastor, they are still in my weekly rotation of songs for my personal time and their songs and arrangements are in our church’s regular rotation.
Oh and I tried the triple strum in college and literally injured my wrist! Ha!!
Thanks for this episode and this podcast.

Soaring Mama ,

WOW- Let me take that thorn/ It is finished

98th episode with Barry Dean
“I hope it doesn’t feel unfinished.”
“I’ll see them again.”
“I love them for who they are.”
Thanks Dave and Jon for sharing your friends, your world, your wisdom and your laughs with all of us!
You inspire moms like me just as much as the dads you are going after!
