DAD (Direct Advice for Dads) brings you all three - through the gloriously unfiltered stories and “wisdom” of Australian dads who are currently navigating the labyrinth of kids, work, family life and relationships.
The DAD Podcast is an offshoot of the DAD blog, which contains over 300 articles that are just as funny, raw and important as this podcast. Check it out at https://www.directadvicefordads.com.au/
