Dad I'd Like To Friend (The DILF Podcast)

Kevin Seldon
25 episodes
Parenting is one of life’s greatest gifts, but it can also be stressful, exhausting, and extremely lonely. This podcast was built on the belief that the best way to build community is by digging in and getting honest with ourselves. This is not a place for advice as much as it’s about finding connection with other parents (no matter your gender) who know exactly what you’re going through. Yes, this is a parenting podcast; and while we do discuss issues that revolve around life with kids, we focus more on the life of a human... who happens to be a parent, and how to balance the multitude of hats we wear on a daily basis while attempting to be the best version of ourselves for our partners, our children, and our own personal well-being. Featured by People Magazine, Season 1 ranked in the top 2% of podcasts worldwide – breaking onto Apple’s Top 50 Parenting Podcast charts across the globe. // To join the conversation, find us on Instagram: @DILFpodcast //
