Valuable Perspective

The Daily Dad is part of my morning routine, and it helps me focus on what’s most important as a father. It’s thought-provoking and of perfect duration (~2min).

Used to be a good podcast

This used to be a good podcast with good advice. The past couple of shows seem to have jumped on the woke political bandwagon. No one cares about your opinion on the vaccine for kids. This little show isn’t going to convince people one way or another.

Also the slight jab at Trump from a couple weeks ago. Keep the advice to how to be a good father, which are desperately needed in todays world, and keep the politics out of it.

It’s 50% ads for crap

The actual content is 5 stars, but it has become 3 minute episodes where the first 30 seconds is auto-skip intro followed by 90 seconds of ads. The remaining minute of content is 5 stars.

But the ads are also insulting DTC crap.

Finally, the host has some germophobia and has been really affected by living in a red state through COVID. You wouldn’t think that would come up much, but it does all the time, and he’s often trying to rationalize his actions and feelings with statements about things like COVID in kids I’m not sure he’s qualified to make. I wouldn’t dock it a star for that though, since I still hope it will pass.

But kill the ads, or at least give us an ad free Patreon feed. Our time is precious and ad skipping is annoying too. I will never buy that cereal.
