The Modern Dads Podcast helps the world keep up with the ever-evolving definition of a “good father.” We discuss issues in each of our parenting podcast episodes that today’s fathers face navigating work, parenthood, relationships and play.

We not only bring 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.
