Verging On Stupid: The Dad Podcast

By James & Andy
Welcome to the Verging on Stupid podcast. Hosted by 2 new dad's, who are teetering on the edge of being completely incompetent. We will be addressing the highs and lows of fatherhood which hopefully brings plenty of laughter, some realisations, and a hint of reassurance. Week by week we will be taking you on our journey as first times dads and discussing the things you need to know and probably some things you wish you didn’t.
