Searching for that parenthood balance so when our kids are old they look back and say, "yeah, my dad (or mom) was awesome," however we get there. And while we love our kids unconditionally, that doesn't mean we're wimpy pushover dads who have lost every shred of dignity and respect in the home. Let's find that balance together. We are Max Valverde and Matt Naylor. We are MILKLESS.

    #49 Queer Eye for the Straight Guys with Colton Underwood

    We've got another kickass guest - and this one's kind of, like, a famous guy. Colton Underwood's resume is truly unique: a Catholic-raised college football star from rural Illinois who made it all the way to the NFL, then appeared on three seasons of The Bachelor... then came out as gay at age 29. Colton is now married with a kid on the way and hosting the hit podcast Daddyhood, but coming out was a long and painful process that he wouldn't wish on anybody. Colton joins Max and Matt for an ho...

    #47 Intervention vs. Letting the Kids Be w/Sam Stolper

    We're always watching our kids to see how they're doing, and to make sure they get the help they need when they need it. But the question of if and when to intervene is seldom clearcut. Whether it's language development, physical or emotional well-being, or even just climbing up high on a counter - parents are constantly asking themselves whether this is the right time to get in there, or if it would be better to hang back and let the kid figure it out. Of course that equation gets even more ...

    #46 Links in a Chain | An Ode to William F Williams

    Just a little somethin' between seasons 2 & 3 of the show. Matt tells a story about his daughter, and about the man who told him - long before Matt had kids - that being a father is "the best thing you'll ever do."

    #45 This is 40

    Holy sh*t, The Boys are turning forty. This one's literally coming out on Max's 40th birthday. Is it just a number, or an opportunity to look at life in a whole new way? Maybe both? Maybe neither? Maybe it's what you make of it. But all the research shows that having a positive perspective on getting older makes the back half of your life a whole lot better (not to mention healthier and longer). So, how do we get there, in spite of the aching joints and inevitable humbling that life deals out...

I want to hang out with these guys

This podcast is my new favorite thing. As a dad who tries hard to be a good parent, but also gets annoyed with his kids, and also likes to swear, this podcast feels like coming home. It’s so fun, and I wish we could hang out in person and share stories about fatherhood. Must listen!

Favorite thing to listen to

The only podcast that makes me laugh out loud!

Real. Funny. Full of heart.

Matt and Max make you feel like you're part of the conversation. They care about the work and the thought and intention necessary to be a parent. They're curious and open to being wrong. Getting to hear them share ideas, learnings, failures and successes with each other is something all parents (especially dad's) need more of these days. Keep 'em coming guys!
