Time for regular dads to vent about regular problems. More humor than advice. Lots of funny stories about the difficult times, the good times and
the really poopy times. For the record we dont have any qualifications whatsoever. We did however, have a great father to learn from.

    Episode #46 – Date Night

    We all know how important it is to spend time with our special ladies (you know who you are).  This is one of those things that we all agree is important, but that is still difficult to do.  Here are some of the ideas we had: It is great to set a consistent time (hopefully […]

    Episode #44 – Healthy Kids!

    Obesity is a real problem with kids today.  We go through and give our ‘guys opinion’ on how to keep kids healthy and happy. As dads it all seems simple.  Make them go outside and dont let them eat too much much.  It all comes down to this – ‘Be the Parent!’ We are oversimplifying […]

    The big political episode.  Can you handle it!  Actually it wasnt all that crazy.  We went ‘lightning round’ and tore through topics in ‘town hall’ style.  Here were the hot topics we covered: Gun Control – Matt and John are pro gun and therefore anti gun control.  Mark hates guns, but realizes that the laws […]

the sleep episode was awesome!

It's nice to know I am not the only sleep deprived dad that can pass out immediately if the random quiet moment happens. This episode was a riot both reaffirming what I should've doing to get my kids to sleep and confirming the chaotic reality of bedtime and overnight sleep rituals. The guys on the show are great, each balancing our the other and it's easy and entertaining to listen to them. Definitely subscribe to this podcast and you will feel like you're not alone in dadland.
