22: Keeping Score (or: “This Nintendo Switch ain’t gonna buy itself.”)

December 10, 2018

Episode 22 is all about keeping score, the pettiest, most tempting, and most unsatisfying aspect of co-parenting. (Extremely Emperor Palpatine voice): Good, gooooood, let the resentment grow.

This is part two of the conversation we started last episode, and it's a good one. It starts with Andy telling an amazing story involving public transportation and diarrhea, and it ends with a new segment: "Is my kid a psycho?" -- where YOU can call in and tell us about your kid and we will give our professional opinion on how weird your kid is. We've reached the final level of parenting: judging other kids.

Is my kid a psycho?:

21: Who’s going to take care of me? (or: “Welcome to podcast therapy.”)

November 26, 2018

Season Premiere! The long wait is over.

This episode centers on a conversation we've been having a lot lately: how do I take care of myself while I'm taking care of all of these other people? How do I ask for help? Do I still get to have needs even though all of these shorter people living in my house spend all day yelling their needs at me?

But you know us - it's not all heavy. Tyler tries to make the whole episode about classic rock, Derek talks about an eight year old who wanted to fight him, Andy's nephew makes a strange artistic request for the cast on his forearm, and Kevin complains a lot. Like a LOT.

Season two!

20: Sports (or: “My strength will overcome my chubby big brother”)

November 14, 2018

Season finale! Podcasts are doing "seasons" now, and we're not trying to get left out so guess what? SEASON FINALE.

So many questions left unanswered for next season. Will they? Won't they? Who shot Mr. Burns? Will these guys ever stop talking over each other(no)? Can Derek keep raising the stakes for his weird intros(yes)?

Also we talk about sports, and how to be a good sports dad. Andy tells us about his first fight, and clearly misremembers how cool he was. Kevin tries not to resent his kid for not being as into sports as he is. Tyler talks about peeing his pants on third base and injuring several 10 year olds. Derek is on the podcast too.

19: Back to School (or: “Bedtime club? Tell me more!”)

October 24, 2018

Back to school means so many things. Exhausted kids, annoying pick-up dads, pants-peeing, trolling kindergartners by making them spell hippopatamus, and probably other things too. But we didn't talk about the other things we mostly talk about the stuff I listed there in that last sentence.

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

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!

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.
