111 Dads in Education – Vote for Your BOE – Guest Mike Tretola



Our kids education is key.

109 Chris Meyer- Fathering Through the Years



This week I’m joined by author and father Chris Meyer. His latest book “Four Months…And A Lifetime” is the touching true story of a father who coached his son’s basketball team from kindergarten through eighth grade, a remarkable nine-year journey with the same boys. Their final march to the eighth-grade season Championship is interspersed with the author’s own journey of falling in love with basketball in early-seventies New York, filled with anecdotes of Dr. J, sneaking into Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, and playing pickup in Larry Bird’s home state of Indiana.

110 Donte Palmer – Fatherhood and Bathrooms Have Never Looked Better



Meet Donte Palmer the everyday dad who become the leader of a culture revolution helping fathers around the world change diapers with the Squat For Change movement. @squatforchange Listen to his story and be inspired!

This episode is sponsored by the new movie American Underdog. When Kurt Warner and Zachary Levi get together to promote their upcoming movie American Underdog, the first thing that comes across is how well they get along. We had a great chat about the movie’s many fatherhood themes, the complicated relationships with their own fathers, and the unexpected joy Kurt felt showing his kids what his life was like before they came along.

Importantly, you can enjoy American Underdog without knowing a thing about football. There are enough messages of love, perseverance, and family to rename it “American Dad Blog.” American Underdog opens Christmas Day.
