Happy Easter!

In this special edition of the podcast Joe has pulled clips that have, for whatever reason, never been heard before on the show!

All of these segments are from earlier in the podcast when Joe, John and Galan were all still hosting the show.

First, the guys talk to Charlie Herschel (who was on the show to discuss his parenting journey through surrogacy) about his experience playing Survivor over 10 years ago!

Second, the guys talk to photographer Alex J. Martin about his relationship with his dad. (Alex took the photos that were seen in the Dallas Observer back in June 2018)

Lastly, Joe and Galan share their personal stories dealing with Chicken Pox and how now that there is a vaccine it's interesting how their children will not have a similar experience to them.

No "Ask the Birth Guy" this week but it will return next week.

Enjoy!

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to Brian Salmon aka Brian the Birth Guy. Due to his love of birth and babies, Brian proudly entered childbirth education as a trained doula and San Antonio’s only actively practicing male doula (or “Dude-La” Brian says, being a surfer from California). Joe and Brian cover a wide variety of topics but specifically focused around how dads can be more active during pregnancy, childbirth and during the post-partum period. Joe is very excited to announce that starting soon there will be the debut of a new recurring segment on the show entitled "Ask the Birth Guy" where Brian will provide short advice on commonly asked questions. Enjoy!

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to Pastor, Theologian, Activist and Dad: Brian McLaren. Joe and Brian touch on multiple topics including parenting and pastoring but the core of the conversation centers on what it means to be a Spiritual and Religious person in America in 2019. In a country that consistently seeks to divide people into "teams" Brian and Joe discuss how we might seek to reach across the aisle in order to find common ground and new path forward. It's a bit on the longer side, but well worth the listen. Enjoy!

In this last episode LIVE from the Dad 2.0 Summit from San Antonio Joe talks to the CEO of Bark Technologies, Brian Bason. Joe actually dove right in to his interview with Brian because he was so passionate about what Bark has and is continuing to do for parents and kids. Bark is the safety net technology everyone needs but didn't know how to bring into existence. Brian and his team have done a phenomenal job creating an app that helps keep your kids safe while also giving them the level of autonomy they need in order to thrive.

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to screenwriter, actor and playwright Mr. Jason Odell Williams. Joe came to know Jason through Brainchild! They discuss the many twists and turns Jason's career has had including writing for the TV Shows Brain Games and Brainchild but also his comedy play Church and State. It seems so hard in this day and age to sit down with people who have opposite viewpoints from us and have an honest conversation about what is needed in order to improve as a society. However, getting to know people one on one and having honest personable conversations is a step in the right direction. Jason Odell Williams intended to help start the discussion with his play Church and State and we intended to continue the discussion with this episode. Enjoy!

Hi there listeners! So, this episode is a bit delayed coming out but we knew it needed to be released. Ever since Joe has been announced as a speaker at the Dad 2.0 Summit we've had a TON of new listeners and most of them just jumped right into the latest episode. However, we've received requests from those new listeners as to which older episodes they should check out, OR what is the best way to introduce their friends and family to the podcast? To answer all of those questions we've put together a little "Best of 2018" episode. We did this to highlight 6 specific segments from some of our most popular shows in 2018 which we feel does a satisfactory job pulling in all of the humor and heart the show is known for. Full disclosure, every single guest in 2018 was phenomenal and we wish we were able to take something from every one of them and put it in this show but alas, that would make the episode longer than it already is. 

For now, enjoy this recap episode and get ready for our next Episode, set to drop this coming Thursday featuring the RETURN of Olympic Medalist and American Ninja Warrior Contestant: Jonathan Horton!

Happy New Year! 

We want to thank you for sticking with us for our 3rd year of podcasting! There is a lot of great content already planned for 2019 so BUCKLE UP!

We want to kick things off with a Powerbomb of an episode here on the podcast!

In this episode of The DTALKS Podcast Joe talks to former WCW President, WWE personality and current co-host of the popular wrestling podcast: 83 WeeksEric Bischoff.

Related image

Joe and Eric touched on multiple topics throughout the course of Eric's career but honed in on exactly what types of trials and tribulations he went through being a parent while also running a high-profile business. Eric dug down deep to let us know how he was able to "have it all" and having an equal partner in the equation is the main reason he was able to get it done.

It's a fascinating dive into the world of professional wrestling where we, as viewers, only experience a tiny piece of it. Most people don't stop and wonder how these individuals are able to parent, travel, perform, etc. all the time. While Eric's experience is unique in that he was running the company he still highlights how it's nearly impossible to parent alone in this situation.

Sit back, relax and get ready for the first episode of what will be a stellar year for The DTALKS Podcast.

In this episode of The DTALKS Podcast Joe talks to Pat Doney of NBC 5 here in DFW.

Image result for Pat Doney

Joe and Pat touched on several topics of interest including Pat's Broadcasting journey as well as his time working with the Cowboys and who his favorite player he's covered has been.

However, all of that pails in comparison to the personal journey Pat walked us through of his and his wife's decision to adopt their son and the personal struggles and triumphs they've endured and are planning for moving forward.

It's a very touching and heartfelt story this holiday season. Please, pour yourself some cider or hot chocolate and give a listen.

We also want to take a moment to say we know the holidays can be a tough time and if you're feeling sad, depressed or lonely please know you are not alone. There are tons of people out there who love and care about you. Please, check on your strong friends, check on your quiet friends and check on everyone else. Hold your family a little tighter and have a Merry Christmas.
