What do you do when you learn your baby will need open heart surgery within days of being born? You start a blog, obviously. And if you’re Tommy Riles you build that blog into Life of Dad, one of the most influential parenting brands in all the land. On this episode, Riles tells us how the whole thing started and what he’s learned about parenting from the giant community he helped build. We talk about men “leaning in” to parenting, getting the “superhero” treatment, and how to cook different meals for every member of your house!
On this episode of the AHDS we chat with Lindsay Powers, founder of the #NoShameParenting movement (noshameparenting.com), who assures us that You Can’t F*ck Up Your Kids.
Her book of the same name is coming out in early 2020, and our first question for Lindsay is “ARE YOU SURE??”. Lindsay wants parents to stop sweating the small stuff and stop judging each other, and we are fully on board with her movement.
We discuss the evils of the Nextdoor app, learn all about “Tit Tents”, and remind ourselves that parents have to put on their oxygen masks first before helping the kids.
We want to hear from you! Send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on Twitter or Instagram @homedadshow.
Did we forget to mention we’d be on hiatus Nov and Dec??
We ended up taking the whole holiday season off, but now WE’RE BACK and we’re excited to embark on Season 2 of the At Home Dad Show during which we’ll continue to explore modern parenting from the dads’ point of view.
We already have some AWESOME guests lined up. We’re also going to connect with listeners who are Stay At Home Dads (via the magic of the cellular phone) and hear what’s happening out there in the trenches of parenthood.
In this kickoff episode, we take a quick look back at what we accomplished during our first season and look forward to what we hope to accomplish in Season 2.
Don’t miss the hilarious SNL commercial “Big Boy Appliances”:
Hey hey … we’re back on our every-other-week schedule! In this episode it’s just us rapping about motivation. We explore the importance of motivation in accomplishing important stuff like exercising, practicing a sport, learning an instrument, going out with friends, or anything else that’s worth your time. Plus, a guys’ perspective on the Parents’ Association, and an update on Baker’s ADD treatment.
It’s been over a month since our last episode and Baker was in the editing bay crafting what could possibly be our best episode yet! This week we’re off the rails with writer/comedian/country singer/freestyle rapper and co-host of the popular podcast Missi & Zach Might Bang! Zach Selwyn (www.zachselwyn.com). Zach is a national treasure and we hope you enjoy this insane conversation. There are FIVE original songs (some improvised), countless tangents, and a few parenting tidbits. Have fun!

So, it’s been a while since we posted and here’s why: We had the very talented comedian, musician and co-host of the popular podcast Missi and Zach Might Bang!, Zach Selwyn on the show and it got crazy. It’s taken us a while to recover from the mayhem, but here is a promo clip from the upcoming Ep 22 of the At Home Dad Show. Zach freestyled this song about a surreal experience Baker had many years ago in Hollywood.

Zach’s hit podcast: Missi and Zach Might Bang!
Ahhhhhhhhh…. This episode is like a giant, contented exhale. The kids are back to school which means The Dads are finally free to get together and have a mid-morning rap. We recap the latest camping adventure, answer some listener emails and comments, preview next week’s episode (very exciting!), and follow up on our last show which saw Baker in a bit of an existential crisis (spoiler: he’s a little better now). Come on in, let’s rap!
See Baker and Adam’s Blackstone Griddle Face-Off here.
On this episode, we sit down with Nick Stauth a psychotherapist who specializes in kids and family. So, of course, we took advantage of some free shrink time! Adam feels he’s half-assing both work and family obligations. Baker is at the end of his rope as a Stay at Home Dad, feeling empty and unfulfilled. What does this mean for The At Home Dad Show???!! Plus, the Four Existential Truths, keeping your kids alive in the woods, and the right way to deal with bullies. Boy, we’re all over the map!

Summer is here and Camp Dad is in full swing. Adam takes us through his epic RV trip and how the boys fared that trek. We read listener e-mails and address some of the questions they face about parenting and handling being a stay at home dad. And we hit on the importance of games like “brutal family Sorry”.
After a summertime hiatus the show is back and this week full-time SAHD Daniel Roemer takes us through the ups and downs of the foster/adopt process and much more.
