Hello everyone! today we'll be going to discuss being a dad in today's day and age. I was a new dad decades ago and things today have changed a lot since then. Marco Carluchi, who is the host of the podcast "Nobody Cares About Dad" has joined us today on this topic and we discuss a lot on the subject of what it means to be a dad today.

We also discuss a serious topic of male suicide and why it's so high in new dads.

Moreover, we'll also be discussing how to act as a father on a day-to-day basis and how to raise our children right. And challenges of being a father.

We also chat about the current society and how people view masculinity as a bad thing and what our stances are on that.

All this, and more in the episode.

A bit about Marco Carluchi:

Marco was born and raised in Grantham, Lincolnshire. Growing up there gave him the itch to explore the world outside of his small town so as soon as he could get out on his own, that’s exactly what he did! As a teenage boy growing into manhood with raging hormones, it wasn’t easy being stuck in one place for too long without any way to release them or anyone around who shared similar feelings about life

Dads around the world have different experiences as they become fathers. This blog hopes to open up dads’ minds and hearts so that they can understand one another better across cultures, countries, genders, races, etc.

A bit about me (Dr. Orest Komarnyckyj):

Dr. Orest Komarnyckyj enjoyed a prestigious career as a periodontal regenerative surgeon moving to a new passion in June 2018. He retired after a 33-year career to pursue new passions. At 69 Dr. Orest has taken on a new role as an Interviewer, Podcaster and government-certified Old Guy. He streams from his new home in Las Vegas, NV. He lives with his wife of 29 years, Oksana. His status as an empty-nesters with two out of college-employed children has left him with time and energy to share decades of successes, failures, and wisdom.
