New Dad

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

A Gamer Looks at 40 ,

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.
