I have listened to every single episode yet I Can not fathom how much of it kinda makes me want to DANCE

I’ve been a fan of all three hosts’ work for almost 10years now, and I’m so grateful for this latest collaboration. Their stories and insights feel fleshed out and relevant to parenting today, and their humor is a balm. Thank you for another worthwhile project—I hope it stays around for a long,...Read full review »

Love having 3 takes on issues and my personal views are matching up with different people all the time. Please don’t stop - don’t know if it makes me a better dad but I love discussing the issues (in my head) with you

Can relate. Take your goddamn pain meds.
Joire de Vivre via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/22
I’m not a dad, I’m not even a mom, but I had a dad once a long, long, long time ago. I love this podcast because I love humor, honesty and humanity.
carpet33950 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/22
I started out loving this, but things took a horrifying turn as the astonishing extent of Eli’s privilege became apparent. He’s joked about “quitting society” before and it’s clearly not a joke - his plan for dealing with just about everything is opting out. School, jobs, risks, responsibilities,...Read full review »

Eli, Thomas and Tom are like the three Dad’s I never had. I love these guys and am shocked at how much I can connect with them based on their messed up childhoods.
Rif's iTunes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/22
I’m envious of all 3 of your dads. I grew up extremely abused, I’ve done manual labor my entire life. My stepson is an adult now, never made him labor, his life is closer to what Eli wants for his child. Still, listening to your conversations has made me reflect on my childhood, and though I have...Read full review »

Love all these guys from other shows and had to try it out. My dad left when i was 4, and I grew up in a house with only women. We did ok, and i have always wondered just what it is that I missed because I didn’t have a father. It’s anthropological for me. So this show has been fascinating to...Read full review »

A fan of each of the hosts from their other podcasts, I subscribed when this podcast launched, but as a non-parent I wasn’t sure I’d ever listen. Today I found myself facing an all-day car ride without an audiobook queued up, so decided to give it a listen. Ten episodes in on a day-long binge,...Read full review »
khedwar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/22
And I never plan to be. This show is endearing and funny and perfect for anyone who had a childhood as well as parents. Actually, the comedy and honesty from Thomas, Tom, and Eli are helping me process my own dad issues… so thanks y’all! Keep being awesome!
neuRoxy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/22
As a mom, thank you for the support and recognition you express. The only viewpoint missing is the Dad who didn’t have a dad or a totally absent dad. I just finished listening to the first 8, and I look forward to future episodes. Thanks for your viewpoints and providing models on how to be...Read full review »

Aussie Dads in the 1970s. JFC. I got out and away at age 17, thank sanity. Now in 2022 on the other side of the world, it is a revelation to listen to these wonderful guys demonstrating honestly and with such heartfelt warmth how much they think and try and do and care about their kids. And they...Read full review »

Finally a non-Christian dad podcast with modern views on parenting.
Trucker Roger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/22/22
My career takes me far from home the majority of the month, but I currently have a four month old. Having a secular podcast to help keep me learning and changing to make sure I’m the best version of myself whenever I’m home is critical. I appreciate the viewpoints, backgrounds and knowledge each...Read full review »

Men confronting toxic masculinity is something we badly need more of in this world.
Kaitlyn Yang via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/22
I listen to many podcasts, but this is the first time I’ve ever been inclined to review in support. As a dad of 5 yo twins, the topics are extremely relevant and relatable. Even more significant is the validation I get from the lesser publicized fears and struggles apparently more common to dads...Read full review »
MKE_Mike via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/22
This is a show I always listen to the day it drops and look forward all week to the next one. I am an almost-70 grandmother and yet I find it relevant, interesting, funny, poignant, and hopeful. Try this once and you'll be hooked. (Also, the barbershop singing close-out is excellent!). I...Read full review »

So smart and funny.
Taracen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/22
I have no kids and never plan to. However my relationship with my own father was/is basically nonexistent not becuase he wasn’t around but because he was very disinterested. I love hearing the conversations and it sort of feels like discussions I wish I had had and guidance I wish I might have...Read full review »

I’m a fan of these three guys & a regular listener to all their shows. So I was already prepared to enjoy this show. But, holy mother of god, this show is good. Three men discussing all the good & bad of fatherhood: fears, joys, anxieties, how life changes… it’s such a powerful discussion...Read full review »
Coatzlfeather via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/22
I know what you’re thinking, I’m not a dad yet or I’m not planning to be, why should I listen to this? I felt that knee jerk reaction, but I went against that, so I thought I’ll give it a go. I’m biased, so I subscribe to podcasts of all three hosts, because I love the work they do and boy does...Read full review »
Adrian Borsz via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/10/22
A unique view into parenting and being raised in this world. It’s made me think more about the decisions we make and the how we were raised affects us now. By three very interesting people who are desperate to be good dads. Thanks for talking thru parenting, masculinity and even women's rights.Read full review »

Best pod for DOD hands down, most honest f’n pod cast ever, Thank you #7 (all previous pods are equally loved…but stuff). Scombert-Chime 4ever
BibliophileG via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/22
This podcast is phenomenal. It is equally hilarious and heartwarming. Highly recommended for dads, moms, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, anyone with kids in their life and anyone who’s ever been a kid.
RuffleButtSarah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/22
My husband and I are fans of these guys and their other podcasts and this pod came just in time before we have our first baby in November. We love listening to their experiences and discussions!
Apchicago7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/22
This seems like such a niche podcast, but I love the guys on it so I decided to give it a shot. There’s actually something for everyone here because they talk a lot about the philosophy of parenting and child development. So even if you’re not a parent yourself, you’ll find it relatable if...Read full review »
Paradoximoron via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/22
If you are a dad, have a dad or had a dad, this is a great listen. It is great to listen to these three outside their normal environments. Deeper than you might expect, with humour drawn from being human beings. Quickly gone to the top of my podcast list.
Guns1inger via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/22/22
Great bunch of guys sharing about their very different experiences with fathers and fatherhood. It’s very insightful and often very funny.
Halvonator via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
Yikes. These are the kinds of fathers everyone dreams of, because they are absolute pushovers. Their morals and ideals are based in nothing. They are afraid of teaching their sons to be men and their daughters to be women. They are raising cowards and pushovers who deny science, hate their own...Read full review »
Demosthenian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/22
I wasn’t going to listen because I’m not a dad but I’m so glad I did. This is an amazing, funny, insightful resource for parenting. I just wish I had this available to me when my son was little.
Tesvoy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/12/22
They broach deep and important topics. They’re raw, honest, & unfiltered. It’s an interesting look at the differences in how kids are raised. Definitely worth the listen.
itshelenloewen via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/11/22
I think this podcast was made for me. I’m just a couple episodes in and already the raw look the guys offer into different ways of being a dad- the good, the bad, and the ugly- helped me see the ways I’m really nailing it as a father, gave context for what my own dad did well and not so well, and...Read full review »

Fantastic show with fantastic guys. I am so thrilled this show happening - maybe life isn’t a horrible whirlwind of endless misery after all!
kespos101 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/22
Father to a 15-month old daughter. This show has helped me think both about my upbringing and about how I want to bring up my daughter. Thank you guys for all you do!
Fghvudhnrgv via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/22
Truly enjoying listening to these three dads.
Lytteren AL via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 06/10/22
Of course the episode ended with a Dad Joke. I felt a strong connection with Tom and his childhood. I’m still trying to figure out how to be a good Dad myself. I’m sure this podcast will help me figure that. Especially if I avoid the bad examples from their stories.
EODTex87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/22
So far so good. Very funny!

Episode 2 just came out and I know I’m going to be in for the long haul

It’s great to hear a group of guys being real about fatherhood. They are honest and relatable in a balanced and healthy way.

Great insight from different perspectives. Love it—thanks Gents!
HillsboroBill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/22
These three men bring an awesome discussion to the table about the rolls fathers play in their children's lives.

Thank you for doing this podcast. I listen to all of your shows, I just listened to both of the shows available and it felt like I was a fly on the wall. You guys are so inviting and warm telling your stories. I wish I had dad friends like you where I live. Incredible Thank you.
Bro21br via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/22
I’m a fairly new dad. And I’ve listened to all of these guys for years. To hear some of my concerns addressed, and turned into a disarmed humor, is the best. Now to get this on other podcast players (looking at you Google).
Jeremy the first via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/22
I’m not a Dad. I’m not in to D & D either, but I love Eli’s D & D show, and Thomas’ American law show (I’m not American). Dear Old Dads is the latest in a long list of podcasts I love that has one, or some combination of Tom, Thomas and Eli on, and that is reason enough to listen. Funny...Read full review »
Heat Death of the Universe via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/06/22
I’m not a dad, just a gal dating a dad. I absolutely love this show. I had a dad that was a cross between Eli’s & Tom’s dads but my mom was actually like Thomas’ dad. This show is so cathartic on many levels, and honestly it makes me love my partner more for being the kind of dad all three...Read full review »
Sarajean913 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/22
Listening to it as a dad was great and certainly makes me appreciate my parents more. Thomas I’m so sorry man, I would have given you a hug.
Kelmonn via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/06/22
Great show, about balancing being a dad, a man and good human. Thank you so much, much needed.
Beerman Dave via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/22
I’m not a dad, nor am I a parent (except to fur babies). I started listening because the hosts are amazing and I listen to their other podcasts. The more I listened to their stories, jokes, and insights made me realize not only is this show just plain entertaining, but this is the kind of content...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to all these Hosts’ variety of podcasts for nearly a decade, and this may be their best concept yet. Eli, Tom C, and Tom S have shared stories of fatherhood over the years, but not in one setting. I’ve admired their candor, their stories, and their ambitions of giving the...Read full review »
