DAD’S ALL EARS THIS YEAR
BEING A DAD HAS CHANGED – SO THIS FATHER’S DAY, GIVE HIM WORDS FROM THE HEART, TIME, AND A LIST OF PODCASTS TO INSPIRE AND ENTERTAIN ON LiSTNR
It could just be the greatest Father’s Day gift ever, and it’s free! This year forget jocks and socks, and give Dad time; time to listen to other Dads talking about being a Dad, because being a Dad has changed!
Here’s what to do: make a great card for Dad, inside tell him why he’s the bee’s knees, remember to add in some wonderfully interpretative drawings of him (😉), then write down LiSTNR’s top five podcasts for Father’s Day and a promise to give him time to listen to them; and that’s a Father’s Day present that Dad will love, keep, listen to, and remember.
LiSTNR’s Father’s Day Listening List includes podcasts featuring insights from a fresh-to-fatherhood Raph Dixon about being a Dad in the 21st Century with inputs from the likes Aaron Gocs and Osher Gunsberg, chats between The Chaser’s Chris Taylor and famous Midwife Cath Curtain about the journey up to and becoming a new dad, and conversations between Dr Daniel Golshevsky (Dr Golly) and parents who have become ‘experts’ in their child’s health.
And as an extra touch, there’s a bedtime story podcast that Dad can listen to WITH the kids while some famous Dads and Uncles do the reading, and a wonderful intergenerational podcast about Grandads!
Happy Father’s Day!
Dad in Progress
One for the new Dads, it’s hosted by fresh-to-fatherhood suburban dad Raph Dixon, and features chats with to other dads, parenting experts, psychologists and some familiar voices like Aaron Gocs, Osher Gunsberg, Archie Thompson and Clarke Gayford as they navigate the challenges of being a Dad in the 21st Century.
Birth, Baby and Beyond with Midwife Cath and Chris Taylor
Take the incomparable Midwife Cath Curtain who has delivered thousands of babies over her famed 47-year career, and add the journey to fatherhood of Chris Taylor, the Australian creative who's best known as a member of The Chaser team and as creator and producer of the critically acclaimed Foxtel/Binge drama Upright starring Tim Minchin. What’s the result? A new season of LiSTNR’s Birth, Baby and Beyond, the acclaimed go-to podcast for new parents, but this time, it’s through the lens of a dad, exploring the facts, fiction, questions, concerns and hopes of the dads who navigate their own unique, challenging and rewarding journey through pregnancy, birth and parenting.
Dr Golly and the Experts

Guests include AFL Great, Jonathan Brown as well as players Jordan Lewis and Jarryd Roughhead, fitness guru Tiffany Hall, Australian sports broadcaster Hamish McLachlan, stay at home dad Josh Miller and more.
