DAD IN PROGRESS A podcast about dad life

To help new dads navigate the ups and downs of becoming a father, leading men’s health charity Movember has teamed up with Diamantina Podcast Network to launch its first ever podcast for new and expecting dads, Dad in Progress, a warts-and-all look at the role of dads in the 21st century. Host Raph Dixon is an everyday suburban dad who asks: When the birth is over, what do I do now?

Over five episodes, Raph is joined by Aussie dads from all walks of life, including his mates, experts and famous fathers such as Osher Gunsberg, comedian Aaron Gocs, soccer star Archie Thompson, sportswriter Sam Perry, and one of the world’s most famous stay-at-home dads, Clarke Gayford – husband of New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern.

From real-life parenting fails through to dealing with ‘dad guilt’, making time for your mates and addressing your dwindling sex life, the series challenges the status quo while answering some hairy questions, such as: Why do mums get all the attention? And: Can dads get postnatal depression too? Peppered with no-bullshit advice from experts, Dad in Progress aims to help new dads deal with the ups and downs of becoming a father.

Brought to you by Movember and the Diamantina Podcast Network (the crew behind satirical news site The Betoota Advocate, Dyl and Friends and The Grade Cricketer), with a host who’s fresh to fatherhood in Dixon, Dad in Progress is a deep-dive into the challenges, life changes and cherub-cheeked joys of new-dad life.
