    47: Marching For Equality w/ Your Kids

    #BlackLivesMatter My son and I marched alongside 1000 protestors on Staten Island for equality! It was one of those moments that hard to describe but easy to feel and I wanted to fill the community in on why it was important to be there fighting for what's right. Remember we matter and so do the lessons we teach, make your presence felt

No kids. No husband. Fave pod.

James teaches me history, empathy, and the sheer joy of personhood.

Not a parent or partner myself (yet?!), but if earn and work for the privilege of those roles, I’ll be more ready because of this pod.

I can still apply what I learn to my life though. I try to leave my coworkers better than I found them. I can better relate to my friends who now have kids, and I’m less frustrated when they seem to be pulling away. Nah, they’re just doing their new job!

My dad and I now listen to these eps together then regroup on them together. It’s like our book club. Grateful 💕

James is the realest

Thank you

Great podcast for the modern father

I’m newer to this podcast after having met James briefly at Dad 2.0 in February 2020. James is just a real, genuine guy with a passion for fatherhood and helping other men be better fathers too. This podcast has helped me think of newer and different ways to make my presence felt in my daughters life. Truly appreciate the work and passion James is putting in. Craig, @singledadreboot
