    Doin' Damage

    Doin' Damage

    Every dad starts with an A+ in fatherhood. No one's been accidentally dropped, no one's been fed milk that should have been smelled first, and no one's been shown a movie that wasn't even remotely appropriate. (We could have sworn Ghostbusters was rated G. Really.) In this episode, Michael and Scott discuss how quickly that A+ becomes a C- (tops).

Jonah018 ,

Hilarious.

Not what you would expect. Very sarcastic, very funny, but underneath is actual insight. Love this podcast. And Jonah is the best person ever!!!!!! Should be the main character he is so charming and he has Insain acting skills.

HIlarious, witty observational takes on the wacky world of raising kids :-)

R.U.Kidding ,

These guys know what Dadhood is about and what it takes to survive it!!

Listen and learn from these two masters as they explain the many stages of fatherhood in the funniest way possible- In the old days, you’d have to order a boxful of cassette tapes from a PO Box in Missouri to get this combination of humor and wisdom, so I also appreciate the convenient podcast format!!
