Episode 3 – Finding Time to Spend With Others

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads talk about the challenges we’ve faced as spouses and parents when trying to set aside time for our friends and partners while adjusting to our responsibilities as parents.

This episode also features our staple segments of “Ask the Dads”, “Dad Jokes” and “Things You Should Check Out”.

We also a special, Patreon only segment where we discuss an article around reasons dads might not want to spend time with their kids. These episodes will be uploaded to Patreon on the day after our episode debuts.

At the beginning of the episode, Galan mentions a new segment called “Dad Stories”, but we forgot to make space for it, so that segment will make it’s debut in a later episode. Sorry about that!

An Interview with Lamar Austin

In this special interview mini-sode of the DTALKS Podcast, Joe interviews Lamar Austin, a New Hampshire father that was fired for attending the birth of his son. Lamar speaks about his reasoning, the opportunities this situation has presented him with, and there’s a preview of an upcoming new segment called “Dad Stories”.

This kind of content will normally be found during full episode releases of The DTALKS Podcast or to Patreon supporters, but when we were presented with the opportunity to interview Lamar so shortly after our episode on paternity leave, we felt that it was something that we needed to share.

Whichever side of the paternity leave issue you might fall on, we can all agree that idea of missing the birth of our children should not be a choice any parent should have to face.

We cannot thank Lamar enough for taking the time out of his day to share his story and thoughts with us. A new kid is a challenge for any family to handle, whether they are new to the game or starting the adventure again for the third or fourth time.

We hosts here at The DTALKS Podcast hope you enjoy this interview.
