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.
