The Podfathers is a podcast from Clem, Large, and Uncle Chaps from Barstool Sports breaking down the good, the bad, and the ugly of fatherhood. Other books and websites and podcasts have tried to explain what life as a new dad is like "from a dude's perspective." "As told by Guy's guys." or "from a mans perspective." They have all failed. Through their own personal experiences and brand of humor, the Podfathers help parents everywhere relate to the wild and crazy ride that is raising children.

The Podfathers have a lot to unload on the backend with Thanksgiving dinner only a week away. First, the guys dive into the uncertain blackhole that comes with this latest covid spike. Clem talks about getting to know himself in a dark warm puddle while Lisa Ann gives Large some advice on the best way to celebrate the end of the juice cleanse. The fellas rebuke a supposed tasty treat that should NEVER be eaten and #embracedebate about doing something rather taboo around Christmas time that can get you put on the naughty list before answering some shitty mailbag questions. Oh yeah and we talk about a baby born with 2 dicks and 2 scrotums.
The Podfathers open up today's pod by bidding adieu to a familiar face to millions of families in Alex Trebek, who was invited into their living rooms every weekday for years. Large talks about his long awaited family trip to an alpaca farm, which led to him discovering a toy version of Clem, which is one of the most bizarre Barstool doppelgangers yet. The guys also discuss a man marrying himself and get into mailbag questions about the unspoken truce about porn between married couples, if Large would want to be a vasectomy sherpa, and if it's okay to let your kids ride the bus to school during a pandemic.
On today's episode, the fellas start things off by jumping all over the holiday map. We get a coronaween recap, brace for Election Day 2020 (which hopefully is over by the time you read this), and #embracedebate if Christmas music season can begin on November 1st.

Halloween is almost here and there are big candy changes coming in both the Podfathers' houses due to Big Rona. Speaking of the coco, Back To School nights are virtual this year due to the virus.

Large and Clem both spent their weekends away from their kids in very different fashions, with one covering a boxing match in Vegas and the other celebrating his anniversary in the Catskills. The fellas go through what life is like in a sports bubble and a bubble without responsibilities for the first time in 5 years before welcoming on Ravi Patel from Ravi Patel's Pursuit Of Happiness on HBO MAX to talk about living a happy life in a world filled with social media distractions and hi def porn available at your fingertips 24/7.
