Podcast #21: The Dad Network

Welcome to episode 21 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 Al, the founder of The Dad Network.

Al’s post The Story of a Dad’s Miscarriage offers a rare perspective from the father’s side of one of parenting’s last taboo subjects: miscarriage. It’s a gut-wrenching story of a couple finding strength together in traumatic times.

You can follow Al on his blog The Dad Network, on Twitter @thedadnetworkuk and also on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram and YouTube.

STT 2015 banner 6When he’s not expanding The Dad Network, Al is a primary school teacher. So he will be familiar with the other side of the fence with my post this week, which looks back on the hidden, diplomatically couched subtext of parents’ evenings and ponders 10 things teachers say – and what they actually mean.

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.
