In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads discuss having the conversation that every parent(s) dread...sex. Although years away from the situation, having a plan going in and being on the same page as the other parent is a solid foundation to build on.

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.

We appreciate Matt taking time out to talk to us about the book and we look forward to the opportunity to have him on again in the future. 

Unfortunately, John was unable to make the interview with Matt due to a death in the family and then caught strep throat when Joe and Galan recorded. As he's everyone's favorite, we're sorry that we couldn't deliver his normal energy with this episode.

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads talk about family gatherings, the dog and pony show that they can come where everyone shows off the kids and what they can do, and the pros and cons of putting our kids in that kind of social environment.

This episode marks the premier of a new format ahead of a big announcement coming the week of October 30th, 2017. Instead of a bi-weekly, two hour podcast, we are moving to a weekly half hour or so show. This means more DTALKS Podcast for you and a bit more focus from us. 

We will be launching directly into the discussion and ending with a weekly dad joke and how you can connect with us. The other staples of "Catching Up With the Dads" and "Things to Check Out" will be available as free bonus content on our Patreon site.

They may not be weekly, but when we do record them, they will always remain 100% free.
