18: Work-Mode vs. Dad-Mode (or: “This is my mom, this is the spoon. Anyway, my room’s upstairs”)

September 24, 2018

Episode 18 is all about the topic we get asked about more than any other - the transition from work-mode to dad-mode. Why is it so hard?

Also Kevin talks about the carte blanche he's given his kids to make fun of him, and Tyler finds a dad-nicknames website that we enjoy more than we have any right to.

17: Road Trips (or: “You know what? You drive.”)

August 29, 2018

We're back! The guys talk through how traveling is so different post-kids, all of us confess to being mediocre + overly sensitive drivers, and Tyler tells us all how he lost the security deposit on his RV rental.

Plus, Derek writes his family rules, and we welcome our first sponsor - Circle, with Disney!

16: Technology (or: “A Tantrum in a Goat Field.”)

July 24, 2018

We're back with episode 16! The guys talk about technology and our pathetic attempts to integrate it into our kids' lives without ruining them. Andy talks about the 80+ times he's seen Trolls with his kid, Derek laments Atley's YouTube obsession, and Kevin describes Julien as a tech addict who needs another hit. Laugh with us, judge us, give us advice? We're trying to figure this one out.

Also the BuzzFeed game is back!

15: Ask HeyDad (or: “The entire male species can’t possibly be collectively continually constipated?”)

June 27, 2018

You have questions, we have answers maybe. We're tackling the big stuff - why dads take so long to poop, how to be encouraging without being patronizing, should boys sit or stand to pee, do aunts/uncles have to buy kid presents for every holiday - giving the hard-hitting, no-nonsense answers the people need.

Also "You know what I hate?" is back!

14: Father’s Day (or: “I go ham in that bath”)

June 13, 2018

Father's Day y'all! The most important day of the year approaches and buckle up because we are extra full of ourselves this week. Tyler's gift to the dads is free rein to brag about what they're awesome at as dads, Kevin's gift to Tyler is a a cruel podcast edit, the guys opine on their ideal no-shame Father's Day celebration, and Derek introduces our first sponsor!*

Happy Father's Day everybody. To all the dads out there hustling and trying to figure it out too, we see you and we love you. This whole HeyDad thing is our love letter and life raft to you.

13: Launch (or: “HeyDad.com is LIVE!”)

May 25, 2018

HeyDad.com is finally live! The guys celebrate the launch of HeyDad.com, we talk about the journey to get to this point (What. A. Ride.), what we hope it accomplishes, and how you can join.

Also, the guys pitch Kevin on new HeyDad boxes and they are terrible. You get to vote on which ones are the best/worst! Loser is going to have to let the other guys pick the license plate holder that goes on his car for a year. HIGH STAKES.

12: Extra Credit (or: “No one gave your wife a parade…”)

May 1, 2018

Confession time on the HeyDad podcast. Even though we do a (marginally) good job projecting our woke, feminist, bona fides...sometimes deep down we're still cavemen. In this episode we get into the idea of extra credit - wanting to be graded on a curve for just doing normal dad stuff. It's bad and we're not proud of it, but we do make a lot of jokes about it...maybe that will help? Also, "You know what I hate?" is back and we're probably going to offend some people. Episode 12!

11: The Day I Became a Dad (or: “Here at Kaiser we value skin-to-skin time.”)

April 4, 2018

Usually it's just moms telling their birth stories and stealing all of the glory because they actually had the baby - but we were kinda involved too! So we're telling ours. Everything changes when you become a dad, except you're still the same guy you were before. The HeyDad guys make that very clear as they tell the stories of the day they became dads. Andy spaces out and forgets social norms, Derek can't do basic adult things, and Kevin takes himself too seriously and cries a lot. Tyler is just kinda there.

10: The 10th Episode Extravaganza (or: “What a Ride”)

March 20, 2018

Episode 10! The guys get together to look back on their immense success. We share some of the clips and stories that we weren't able to fit into previous episodes, since the listening public can only handle so much wisdom and laughter. We reminisce about Derek's ongoing love affair with Taco Bell, the time Kevin roofied Andy on a plane, and a bunch of other good stuff. Also, Derek tries to quit the podcast.

Recorded live on the main stage at Coachella.

09: Your Problems are Stupid (or: “At least I got to feel superior?”)

March 6, 2018

The last few weeks we've been busy working on all the other HeyDad stuff - shooting our promo video and getting HeyDad.com closer to launch - but we're back, and as self-important as ever! In this episode, we talk about being a dad and what it's like to play the Comparison Game with your other dad-friends (and with your non-dad friends.) We also get into whether turning complaining into a competition is a good thing (spoiler: it's great, everyone loves it!) Also BuzzFeed is back!
