Info

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.
