Podcast #20: Diary of the Dad

Welcome to episode 20 of the Slouching towards Thatcham podcast, a showcase for the UK’s best parent bloggers.

Every week my guest and I each talk about and read one of our favourite posts, giving a peek inside our family lives. It’s as simple as that: bite-sized chunks of blogging brilliance!


This week I’m joined by Tom from Diary of the Dad.

Tom’s reading a post titled Welcome Amelie which captures the events and emotions surrounding the recent birth of his third child.

You can follow Tom on his blog Diary of the Dad, on Twitter @DiaryOfTheDad and also on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram and YouTube. You can also hear his dulcet tones over on the Love All Dads podcast.

STT 2015 banner 6As it’s the week before Christmas, I’m entering into the festive spirit with another of my parenting song parodies.

In What if The Pogues had written a Christmas song about parenting?, I give one of the all-time classic Christmas songs the Thatcham treatment with reworked lyrics which will hopefully ring a (sleigh) bell with parents everywhere. (You may want to listen in a soundproof room with earplugs in, though.)

The podcast is taking a couple of weeks off and will be back in early January, so a merry Christmas to you all!

You can also subscribe to the podcast via iTunes, Player.fm, Stitcher or directly via this link. Or you can find every episode contained on the blog here.

Finally, if you’ve enjoyed the podcast and you’re an iTunes user, I’d really appreciate it if you could spare a minute to provide a quick review and rating. It makes a huge difference to how it’s ranked within iTunes’ listings. You can do this directly in iTunes or via this link.
