S1E7 – Daddy Boot Camp: A Labor of Love

Today’s dads have fears. How do I raise a child, change a diaper, keep my career, give love, get love? Rinse and repeat. There’s training for that: Daddy Boot Camp.

It’s focused on almost-dads – men who are weeks or months away from becoming dads. And they have a lot of questions, especially as the image of the modern dad is in flux.

Even now, there’s an archetype of the bumbling dad, someone who might imperil a child, obliterate the house, or otherwise pervade vast domestic ineptitude. That’s in contrast to a shifting image of the dad who shares parenting and providing roles with his partner.

Listen to hear what dad’s fear and how they might cope.
