Nurse Papa is a brand new podcast from the heart and mind of a pediatric oncology nurse and father. In each episode, I take a deep dive into a story of parenthood and come out on the other side with a greater understanding of what makes kids and their parents tick. In the second half of each episode, I answer a letter from a loyal parent listener about their most pressing parenting problems, in a segment called Dear Nurse Papa.

Nurse Papa – An Interview Nurse Papa

Wow this is the 31st episode of the Nurse Papa podcast. I have decided to add a novel element to the Nurse Papa podcast. I think it might be a good time to bring in some new voices to this space and some new ideas too. In the coming months I will be sharing some spirited conversations between myself and various experts all in the effort to help enhance your journeys as parents or people. But today, to ease on into this new realm, I will be sharing a conversation between myself and the hosts of a just amazing podcast called Modern Dadhood. Marc and Adam of the Modern Dadhood podcast have interviewed many amazing dad guests: well-known comedians, writers, journalist, and thinkers of our time. And back in 2021 they took the time to interview me and it was a really great conversation. Marc and Adam have graciously allowed me to share that episode with you. So sit back, relax, and get ready for laughs, some tears and everything in between. Enjoy! I am proud to have EKO as a sponsor to the Nurse Papa podcast. I use this special stethoscope every day at work and it has indeed changed my nursing practice for the better. Please check it out and use the code word PAPA for 10% and purchase.
