Celebrating Dad Day!



This week's show highlights:

  • Gay marriage announcement
  • Dads In Charge
  • How happiness trickles down in families


Brent Almond is a graphic designer, writer and dad. He combines all of these on his blog Designer Daddy, where he rambles on about pop culture, superheroes, crafts, and being a gay dad of an adopted son. Every morning he doodles notes for his son's lunch box, which were featured on BuzzFeedABCNewsToday and a bunch of other places. (Normally they just live on Instagram @superlunchnotes.) He was honored as one of the Voices of the Year at BlogHer 2014, and was recently named one of the Best Dad Blogs on the Internet by Mashable. In his "free time" he sings with the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, where he once got to play the Sugar Plum Fairy. Brent lives in the ‘burbs of DC with his husband, their 5-year-old son and pre-Obama Portuguese Water Dog.


Chris Bernholdt was an art educator for ten years in the suburbs of Chicago before he moved away and resigned as a teacher to stay home with the kids. He has been a stay at home dad since 2008 when he first started writing his blog called DadNCharge which focuses on the creativity and knowledge it takes to raise children. He is a board member of the National At Home Dad Network and the blog editor.  He is also the co-founder of Philly Dads Group a social group for dads. He lives in a suburb of Philadelphia with his three kids and wife and wife Susie. 


Paul Gilbride founded Trickle Down Happiness, LLC in 2014 and is dedicated to helping Dads live happy, fulfilling, passionate and purposeful lives. He believes that building the relationship with ourselves and striving to become our best provides a Trickle Down effect that positively impacts our kids, our spouses, our friends and the world. The greatest gift we can give the world is becoming the best most authentic version of ourselves we can be. Paul is a recovering CPA who gave up his 15-year career to stay at home with his two kids. In the process, Paul found his true calling in life and is now a certified Life Coach and Energy Leadership Master Practitioner.

So pull up a chair, shake up a cocktail, and kick up your heels while you tune in to the refreshingly real talk about what it takes to be a functional - and fun - parent in today's wild world of raising kids.
