Modern Dads Podcast by City Dads Group
The Modern Dads Podcast helps the world keep up with the ever-evolving definition of a “good father.” Mental Floss, Good Housekeeping and The Washington Post are just a few of the publications that have put us on their must-listen-to parenting podcast lists.
Each parenting podcast episode discusses issues today’s fathers face navigating work, parenthood, relationships and play. We share stories of dads who are active and engaged in the decisions, the drudgery, and the pains and the joys of parenthood. Our parenting podcast not only brings modern dads into the conversation, but also – regardless of gender – our spouses and partners, friends and colleagues, and leaders in business, entertainment and media.
The Modern Dads Podcast is produced by City Dads Group and Krosstown Studios with contributions from City Dads Group members nationwide.
Author Jonathan Oliver joins to talk about marriage, at-home fatherhood, and his new book, To the Little Boy in Me: Learning with Dyslexia & ADHD.

Dr. Michael Reichert talks about his new book, How to Raise a Boy: The Power of Connection to Build Good Men.

We discuss how to talk to boys about the #MeToo movement and gender equality.
