Don’t have any kids that I know about yet but if/when it happens, I’ll be ready having followed this podcast. Fun banter and great info!

Where was this show when I was going from dude to dad???

I’ve gone from dude to dad (my kids are in the 20s now) and man do I wish I had a podcast like this when I was going from dude to dad. Heck, I wish there were any podcasts back then, but especially this one. The things these guys discuss hit the nail on the head for one greying dad who was once a dude. Subscribe!

Makes an important topic fun

So happy I discovered this podcast! We’ve got a lot of new dads in our family and friends group. The episodes are short, funny, and informative. Definitely passing this one along!
