Dad and Buried

Dad and Buried

dadandburied.com
Dad and Buried is a podcast about parenting from a couple of guys who hate parenting. Don’t get them wrong, they love their kids - to different degrees, depending on the day (and the kid) - but being a parent is tough, time-consuming, stressful, thankless, expensive, exhausting, largely unrewarding, really loud, often quite boring - did I say expensive yet?,or thankless? - emotionally draining work. Join Mike and Pete as they mock children, bash parenting, and talk about the stuff that most parents don’t usually talk about. At least not out loud.
