November 3- Dads celebrating dadhood


This week's show highlights:

  • Dadmissions from a dad
  • Parenting phrases that work


Pete Wilgoren is a TV journalist by day and a doting dad the rest of the time. He has won Emmy awards for his work in TV news including an investigation into freeway safety which went all the way to Capitol Hill and the desk of Senator Dianne Feinstein. Pete's kids are glad to use the Emmys to hang their swim goggles on, or to make goals for floor soccer, or to use in My Little Pony play. This is his life, the dad perspective, outnumbered with a wife and two girls.  You can read Dadmissions in the Huffington Post, Mamapedia, The Good Men Project, Scary Mommy Society, and more.  


Whit Honea lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two boys (and too many pets). He is a freelance writer/blogger working primary with Babble (Disney), BabyCenter,, GeekDad, and Fandango Family (plus dozens more like HuffPo, TODAY, The Good Men Project,, etc.). 

His book, The Parents' Phrase Book, is a guide to communication, the wonder of childhood and the importance of empathy. He is the co-founder of Dads 4 Change, a site committed to social good through a family lens. He is also part of the team behind the Dad 2.0 Summit.

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.
