The Dads

The Talking Dads are two lifelong friends from Cleveland, Ohio who realized very quickly that not every Dad has someone to walk beside them in their fatherhood journey. After spending months debating parenting topics, #dadhacks, typical wtf scenarios, and #prouddadmoments, they decided that other guys might need to hear what they were talking about. Thus, a podcast was born and turned into a community of Dads who support each other through storytelling, laughs, and a love of bourbon.
