I needed this today.

I recently found out the man who raised me is not my biological father. It hit me really hard and I struggle sometimes. It’s nice to hear stories about other people going thru similar things. My story is a bit different, but similar! I was looking for a pod cast on girls finding there biological father when I found this one. Apparently there are not many out there or I was searching the wrong thing.. Any ways it was a great ride home today! Thank you!!!!

Soon-to-be Father

I started listening to Nick when he was with MLS doing their soccer podcast. He’s a natural story teller and I’ve been very impressed by this show. As a father-to-be later this summer, this show has really caused me to be more introspective about what kind of parent I want to be. I’m very thankful to Nick for doing this podcast.

You need to be listening to this

There are podcasts put out by professional organizations that aren’t half as good as this. Paternal is thoughtful and insightful. Really enjoy this podcast.
