Three brothers and one other guy talk about Dad life
38 Episodes
Reverse
We're back with a very different episode from our usual silliness. Kevin goes deep into the issue of guns and mass shootings in America, prompted by the fears that he (and so many others) feel when dropping their kids off at school. We know this isn't what you're used to, but being a dad colors every single aspect of our lives - silly stuff and serious stuff alike.This is a long and emotional exploration of an issue that we are very bad at talking about in America, and we hope that you take the time to dive in with us. Let's try to talk about this without just yelling at each other.And fear not, we'll be back with a much more normal episode (Potty Training!) very soon. 
School's been back in for a while so we should probably talk about it. Parent teacher conferences, standing up to fake bullies, explicit lanyards, "yes, and" with your kid's teacher as they tell you what your kid is doing wrong - this episode has all the good stuff. New segment! Dad facts, where we talk about basic things we should already know but for sure don't. ICYMI: We launched a Patreon!https://www.patreon.com/heydadIf you love this show and want to help us make more, please consider supporting us there. Come on dooo it.
Halloween recap! The guys talk about a T-Rex fight at school, Tyler's encounter with a banshee, Kevin calls his sweet beautiful oldest son a wuss, and there's a lot of arguing about tootsie rolls. Also somehow we make "it's a me, Mario!" sexy...Also "You know what I hate?" is back, and somehow the whole segment is about Taco Bell. ICYMI: We launched a Patreon!https://www.patreon.com/heydadIf you love this show and want to help us make more, please consider supporting us there. Come on dooo it.
And we're back!Season 3 kicks off with quite possibly our best episode ever. There comes a time in a man's life when he needs to stop making people. That moment recently came for Andy, and naturally Tyler and Kevin decided to chaperone the whole experience. Derek had work or something, he will regret not being there to his dying breath.The car ride there, tailgating in the hospital parking lot, spitballing vasectomy-related business ideas, telling stories of all the dumb stuff Kevin did during his vasectomy...if you're not excited about this episode then we probably shouldn't hang out.AND MORE BIG NEWS: We're launching a Patreon!https://www.patreon.com/heydadIf you love this show and want to help us make more, please consider supporting us there. It will help us never have a 3 month break between seasons ever again.
If being a dad is "the most important job you'll ever have," then it's time for a performance review. Tyler does some very basic internet research on how to do one of these, then pulls Kevin into the office with HR to talk through his performance this last quarter. Also, the BuzzFeed game is back! Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349--IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
A very special epsiode of the HeyDad Podcast, where we get a chance to interview Shea Serrano from The Ringer. He's an amazing writer, full-on Thing on the Internet, and a Dad of three boys. We talk about positivity, hard conversations with his kids, and which rapper/character from The Office he would choose to be his dad. FYI: There is some adult language in the interview - so if you're listening with kids, you've been warned! :)Also, "You know what I hate?" is back!Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
It's Father's Day! So naturally we asked the only non-dad on the show to talk about his parenting angst. Tyler shares his perspective on losing the "non" in his title, and the rest of the guys share about how and why being a dad means so much to them.Also somehow Tyler transitions from an endorsement of survivor into a new take on an old classic - "You know what I miss?"Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349ALSO - Buy your Father's Day gifts RIGHT NOW. The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Lies! A story about Kevin's 1st grader regularly coming home with wildly incorrect information becomes a wider conversation about lying and kids.Andy shocks everyone with some truly terrible boyfriend behavior in the cold open, and the guys tell very real stories about the worst lie they've ever told (and we unintentionally lifted some of this from The Office, but imitation is the highest form and all that).Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349ALSO - BIG CHANGES AT HEYDAD.COMThe code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Mother's Day!The guys describe how watching our wives give birth makes us borderline worship them, Tyler seamlessly works a Beyonce reference into a discussion about birth, we all talk about some of the things we love about watching the women in our life be moms, and DEREK INTERVIEWS OUR MOM.Also we thought it would be a good idea to start a Mother's Day episode with a circumcision anecdote, because we're idiots. Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Tyler takes the wheel and finally gets his chance to convince us that having a dog is like having a kid. Tyler lays out the similarities, Andy makes some confessions, and Derek finds a way to mention his remodel again. The discussion ends with a story that was almost too gross for this podcast.Plus we have a dog theme song that plays for so, so long. Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
How, just how does everything get so messy so quickly? The podfathers discuss messiness, conflict about said messiness, expectation setting, and how to deal with one of the more annoying realities of parenting.  You know what I hate is back, as well as "Is my Kid a Psycho?"Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Having a kid turns even the most optimistic of us into worriers. You love them so much and they're so dumb and dangerous and helpless. In this episode we talk about irrational worries, the co-parenting dynamic when one person is more worried about something, what this podcast will be like when our kids are teenagers, and so much more. Also Derek basically does an unpaid ad for Disneyland during "Is my kid a psycho" and we all resent him for it.Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Episode 26. What do you do when your kid is too hard on himself? What is the right amount of worrying about a kid? Is it ok to project current behavior into the future (what will be be like when he's 15)? How do you teach a kid to value some adult's opinions over others?But it's not all too heavy-handed and whiny, we do our usual stupid stuff too. There's our first unanimous "yes" to an "Is my kid a psycho?" voicemail, and You Know What I Hate? is back!Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Heyoooo it's new episode time. Today we're talking about when you have to be a dad in front of other people, and all of the complications that brings. Derek lives at his in-laws for two months, Andy delegates potty training to a baby sitter, and Kevin's kids desperately want to be dropped off at Grandma's house, rather than having Kevin stay and hang out.In other news, the BuzzFeed game is back and also we have a new "Is my kid a psycho" and you are NOT READY for the ending.Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Y'all be cool ok it's time to talk about secrets. Specifically, how our kids cannot handle them at all and make the process of keeping any kind of secret/surprise from them a total nightmare for the whole family. We also talk about creating a vibe in the house where kids don't feel the need to hide stuff, we tell each other some of our own secrets, and submit a new entry for the world's shortest, saddest story (we're on your corner Hemingway).Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Holiday episode! We're not gonna bury the lede here, Derek uncorks an incredible story at the end of this episode that will shake you to your very core. We also talk about whether the holidays are better/worse with kids, Kevin tells a story of how he accidentally badgered his daughter into putting her life in danger, Andy briefly nerds out about gingerbread houses, and the guys all have way too much fun with Grinch and Willy Wonka references. Don't forget!Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your kid being a psycho - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:The code "heydadpodcast" gets you $10 off at HeyDad.com - do it!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
Episode 22 is all about keeping score, the pettiest, most tempting, and most unsatisfying aspect of co-parenting. (Extremely Emperor Palpatine voice): Good, gooooood, let the resentment grow.This is part two of the conversation we started last episode, and it's a good one. It starts with Andy telling an amazing story involving public transportation and diarrhea, and it ends with a new segment: "Is my kid a psycho?" -- where YOU can call in and tell us about your kid and we will give our professional opinion on how weird your kid is. We've reached the final level of parenting: judging other kids.Is my kid a psycho?:Call anytime and leave us a voicemail with a story of your own - (415) 340-2349HeyDad:Buy one give one until 12/16!

Season Premiere! The long wait is over.This episode centers on a conversation we've been having a lot lately: how do I take care of myself while I'm taking care of all of these other people? How do I ask for help? Do I still get to have needs even though all of these shorter people living in my house spend all day yelling their needs at me?But you know us - it's not all heavy. Tyler tries to make the whole episode about classic rock, Derek talks about an eight year old who wanted to fight him, Andy's nephew makes a strange artistic request for the cast on his forearm, and Kevin complains a lot. Like a LOT.Season two!Grado Labs:Since 1953 Grado Labs has hand built headphones & cartridges in Brooklyn, NY.Through three generations the family has kept the tradition of putting sound first.HeyDad:Buy one give one until 12/16!

Season finale! Podcasts are doing "seasons" now, and we're not trying to get left out so guess what? SEASON FINALE.So many questions left unanswered for next season. Will they? Won't they? Who shot Mr. Burns? Will these guys ever stop talking over each other(no)? Can Derek keep raising the stakes for his weird intros(yes)?Also we talk about sports, and how to be a good sports dad. Andy tells us about his first fight, and clearly misremembers how cool he was. Kevin tries not to resent his kid for not being as into sports as he is. Tyler talks about peeing his pants on third base and injuring several 10 year olds.

Back to school means so many things. Exhausted kids, annoying pick-up dads, pants-peeing, trolling kindergartners by making them spell hippopatamus, and probably other things too. But we didn't talk about the other things we mostly talk about the stuff I listed there in that last sentence.Circle, with Disney:Learn more about Circle and where to get one for your home at meetcircle.comUse code “HEYDAD” at​ ​meetcircle.com​ to get $10 OFF your Circle and FREE SHIPPING(not valid in combination with Circle price reduction)HeyDad:Use the promo code "HeyDadPodcast" at HeyDad.com for $10 off of the HeyDad play box!IG: @heydadTwitter: @heydadboxemail: podcast@heydad.com
