The Dad Zone

This is a comedy advice podcast by two dads who know all there is to know about dadding. They answer questions from listeners and the internet about the trials and tribulations of parenthood from a dads perspective.
No topic is out of bounds, these two dads are unafraid of addressing the difficult issues. Mostly they just talk rubbish and sometimes they even give sensible advice!

What do you do if someone dresses your kid in team colours you don't agree with? Who cares? (Simon). An in-depth and nostalgic analysis of stuff kids don't have to do now days is also included!
