    Ep. 330 - MegaCast: Summer Games Fest - Xbox Game Showcase

    This was a wild episode.
    To give a peek behind the curtain, Jeff and Trevor try to keep each recording down to a tight 30 heavily focused on Fatherhood and Gaming. In this episode, the well meaning but ultimately naïve dads decided to do a run down of all the games announced during the recent Summer Games Fest and Xbox Game Showcase.
    Was results is this episode, running one and a half hours, as the dads decend into increasing madness trying to stick to their initial intent of the episode.
    Is there a particular game you're looking forward to that was announced? Let us know at www.newdadgaming.com or on social at @newdadgaming

Amazing podcast and people

I love listening to this podcast on a weekly basis. Trevor and Jeff are great people who will read and answer your questions about gaming and fatherhood on the show. It’s great having a conversation with them and their tips have helped me with my kids and to find time to fit in gaming as a new father.

New Dad

Great to hear different perspectives on not just gaming but parenting in general like time management, screen time management and other aspects.

Living the Dad Life With Controller in Hand

If adulting is a beast, dadding can be a monstrosity. Demands on time, energy, and resources can make fatherhood feel like a massive sacrifice. The things we love to do must become things we USED to do. New Dad Gaming cuts through that misconception by not only telling personal stories of their lives as gaming dads, but being an example of how to navigate the new world and responsibilies of dad life without jettisoning a love of video games.

Hosts Trevor and Jeff feel like close friends and that connection seeps from the speakers with every episode. And each pod is a trim 30 minutes, perfect for busy dads with precious little time. NDG is my go-to dishwashing show for that exact reason. A pair of unique perspectives that hits me square in the life stage, NDG is the perfect companion for piloting life as a gaming dad.
