29: Live potty training episode - Dave McIntyre's Fridge and much moreDadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
Dave is not free to come into the studio because he's potty training. Or rather he's training his son to use the potty. He's had just the one accident so far, or rather his son has. BOOM. Where is Nathan anyway? He must be at his kids school sports day. That's the only potential reason for him to miss this, right?
The podcast reaches peak Dadcast and Dave actually reads off the contents of the TUC crackers from his own house. Adrian praises his own parenting, again. And we deal with the slew of emails coming in - if you want your name accidentally read out then email the dads on email@example.com or hit them up on twitter @dadcastpod.

28: Another x closer to death - unusually high levels of swearing this weekDadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
Nathan, Dave and Ger are back this week to talk about refusing to eat bad food, the slow death of your soul as you serve up plain pasta and tuning your kids out when they're completely mental in public. One of the dad's eldest kids goes camping with the beavers and a first visit to school for next years junior infants intake leaves one dad totes emosh.
We also learn the great art of not saying what you think when your partner is joining the kids melt-down, not ringing home when the rows are ablaze and more, much more. The reviews are great - keep them coming here (https://podcasts.apple.com/ie/podcast/dadcast-misadventures-in-parenting/id1437650268?mt=2)
27: What I did on my holidays - the Nathan Murphy EpisodeDadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
Nathan gives us a blow by blow by blow by blow account of his holidays. Dave correctly identifies it as 'boring but informative' and as ever, he's right. But we all know how hard it is to find a holiday that makes sense for kids and adults alike so this is worth your while. Adrian takes it too far when he asks for details about what happens when the kids are away in kids club.
26: McIntyre's back but the kids toys might not be, also Sports Day - to celebrate or not?Dadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
This was supposed to be a sex free episode, (a bit like a marriage, wha? AY-OOOH), but we did have an email into firstname.lastname@example.org which brought the topic up right at the start. Dave, not having listened to the last two episodes, didn't even miss a beat in answering the question du jour - do you have to schedule sex?
25: Sibling rivalry, holiday hell and WAY TOO BUSY schedules (for sex)Dadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
Will our kids ever leave our homes? No is the answer, so nest well and settle down for a long time spent with your kids. It'll be fine. Sibling rivalry, kids fighting and follow up to having no time for nookie.

21: When is it ok to call for help - after an hour? Your kid is being bullied? Dad's in the Ladies toilets - WTF?Dadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
McIntyre is back and dropping wisdom like a new hip hop track on a music service no-one asked for. Nathan has a friend who asked what to do about his kid being hit by the kid of the coach of his kid's football team - confused? So are we. Then Ger asks which toilets he should bring his 7 year old to, at the game in the Aviva? It goes a bit weird for a while after that but don't hold it against Nathan. OH BURIED THE LEAD - Adrian had to call for the SWAT team to rescue him after an hour minding the kids alone. Is calling your wife to come home after an hour worse than telling everyone she snored during pregnancy on a podcast? Find out this week.

19: Dads For Daughters and Sport - Kieran Donaghy + Andy Lee join the conversationDadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
As part of the 20X20 initiative aimed at increasing participation, attendance and coverage of women's sport there's an entire discussion to be had around the role that Dads play in making sure girls get access early and often to a range of sports. We've got some champion Dads in today as special guests, in Kieran Donaghy and Andy Lee, both of whom have daughters. And three of the usual Dad's are here too - Nathan, Ger and Adrian are back with their usual bad advice. This was recorded ahead of time and supposed to drop on International Women's Day, but it was too good to hold on to.
(And also Nathan took last week off so we'd no show. Sue me.)

10: Does travel alone make you a guilty Dad? Dave's in Philly to find out..Dadcast - Misadventures in parenting add
For various reasons the 4 Dads have occasion to travel, sometimes it's spurious, others it's because there's a big game on that needs covering. Or in Nathan's case he just had to go to the Euros for a month because those midweek press conferences won't cover themselves. What did happen in the OTB flat in Versailles? Dave is on a junket in Philadelphia, feeling the brotherly love but is he crying because he's missing his kids or because the movie on the plane was sad?
