E11: Man Flu, sick kids and staying well.

November 5, 2018

The Man Flu is a cold or similar minor ailment as experienced by a man who is regarded as exaggerating the severity of the symptoms, but scientist are claiming it's real.

We discuss this as well as dealing with sick kids and how we all try and avoid getting sick and what we do when we are sick as well as a little bit about being hungover.

This was our pilot episode that we recorded before we started posting episodes, so this is taking it back to where it all began.


Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
