Top 10 Podcasts for Fathers

In the last couple of years, many people have discovered the value of listening to podcasts while on the treadmill, a walk, or a long drive. Learning while exercising is a good strategy and a great way to multitask. These ten podcasts are among our favorites because they are produced by and for fathers. They speak to many men and dads alike and have been a great help in discovering more about fathering philosophy. We recommend them highly to any father who wants to be a little better and do it in a way that will both entertain and enlighten.
