This week, I sit down with John Adams, host of DadPodUK, a fatherhood and family life podcast that shares the different, unique experiences of fatherhood.

John’s podcast comes from being a stay-at-home dad for 10 years, and the conversations he’s had with other dads around the various challenges they face as dads in an increasingly changing world.

My concern isn’t how much they’re going to miss academically – my concern is the impact on their social development.

Topics up for discussion this week include:

  • how lockdown encouraged him to start the show
  • the most emotionally-charged interview he’s done to date
  • why he wants to change the conversations around dads in the media
  • how he and his wife made the decision for John to be a stay-at-home dad
  • how his dad blog led to a charity event at Downing Street in London
  • why finding guests can be a challenge for him
  • why his show is so geared towards breaking down stereotypes
  • why we need to be having more discussions about race and ethnicity at home
  • how lockdown added extra difficulties for his eldest daughter and her changing school levels 
  • why he believes Covid will offer positive opportunities for change with this generation
  • why he believes flexible working should be available to parents
  • how lockdown has enabled a new dynamic at home for his wife
  • how he manages difficult conversations as a dad to two daughters
  • why he feels fathers are in a strong position to talk to daughters about periods and menstruation
  • how different countries can be when it comes to gender equality
  • what his plans are for the future of his podcast
  • where he sees Clubhouse fitting into the podcast ecosystem
  • why he’s in no rush to make video podcasts
