The DTALKS Podcast - A Dad Podcast

The DTALKS Podcast is a parenting podcast with a focus on the dad’s perspective and features dads talking about life, kids, and stuff.  While dads have an obvious interest in our kids, there’s still room to discuss our hobbies, the movies we enjoy, TV shows we’ve grown up with, and other things that entertain us. Life in general, and especially as a parent, is in a constant state of evolution, and we feature conversation around both how we deal with it and how we prepare our children for the world they are growing up in.  Our podcast does feature guests that offer perspectives we do not. Some might be personalities you’re familiar with and others are our friends, but all have something unique to add to the discussion. We do try to keep the focus on their experiences with fatherhood, but go where the conversation takes us.

We do not discuss our personal views or get into who/what the show itself supports. This is what hope is perceived as a relatively neutral discussion on the subject.

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads share some of the bonus content normally reserved for the $2 and up tiers of their Patreon. 

The bonus segments are as follows:

  • The Desire For Personal Peace
  • Can We Call an Audible?
  • 90's Nostalgia
  • The Target Bathroom Story

The above content features a conversation about wanting to simplify our lives as we grow older, a segment that quickly suffered from wobbly wheels, Joe's story about Pizza Hut and Galan's experience dressing up as a Ninja Turtle for a middle school talent show, and Galan's shameless attempt at sophomoric humor.

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads discuss having the talk with our kids about alcohol, peer pressure, and how we are aiming to handle how we intend to teach them about the dangers alcohol can bring. 

There are a lot of resources out there and alcohol and the dangers of underage drinking are important subjects to discuss with your kid. As parents, we are the first exposure and line of influence our kids experience when it comes to drinking. It is our responsibility to have open communication about this, answer the questions we can, and find the answers we don't know.

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads revisit the second segment of their original conversation with Cinto Ramos, Jr. Back in August of last year, we started out a conversation that went in a VERY interesting direction when we broached the subject of being a Hispanic dad here in Texas, especially given the prevalence of racial issues in the news at the time. 

Sometimes, life comes first and we were unable to record an episode, but it worked out because we have the opportunity to share one of the most impact 30 minute stretches of time in the history of our podcast.

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads welcome back previous guest Cinto Ramos Jr. and his friend Frank Minikon Jr, COO of Melanin Origins, a company that publishes children's books, to discuss how we pass on what being a man means to our children and what our children should expect from the men in their lives.

There has been a recent news of a number of celebrities' acting inappropriately from a position of power and/or influence. Unfortunately, this kind of behavior extends beyond celebrities and it is important as parents and adults who have an influence on the children in our lives to teach them what to expect from adults, especially men. 

This episode finds us briefly wading into a very deep pool of a subject. It is imperative that we teach our kids what is and is not OK for the adults in their lives to do, and that we always offer them a sanctuary in the turbulence of that life inevitably throws our way.
