‘Dad Story, Ep. 2 (Podcast): A hero’s journey with Kyle Belanger


Heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

There’s Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2. There’s Homer’s Odysseus. 

And, remember that time Mickey Mouse was a tailor and somehow managed to take down Elmo the Giant to win Minnie’s affection?

In the second edition of our Dad Stories Podcast, let me introduce you to another hero. This one’s real, and he’s definitely more Mickey Mouse than Arnold. Yet he’s battled more than those two combined.

This week’s Dad Story is that of Kyle Belanger, a dear friend and my co-founder here at the First Time Father Project. Listen in to hear Kyle’s take on a fatherhood that has been the most amazing of rollercoasters and a true hero’s journey.

As a reminder, if you want to tell your Dad Story, we’d be honored to have it included. Either hit us up on our Facebook page or email us directly. (Please be patient, though. We promise to make every attempt to get to you as quickly as possible, but … you know … this fatherhood thing takes precedence.)
