Hosted by Vic Lorusso & Al Del Bene

Daditude, the parenting podcast by dads, for dads. It's the fun, informative and heartfelt podcast for dads to feel supported, heard, and entertained as hosts Vic Lorusso and Al Del Bene unpick the madness of daddying and the profound love anchored in their parenting experiences

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH

Vic and Al talk about how to cope with the shock of becoming a parent, what happens when it all gets a little too hard and discuss post-natal depression in dads (yes, it’s a real thing). They also talk to Terri Smith, who is the CEO Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia to get some great advice on how to cope (SPOILER: always ask for help!) and check in with a mum and friend of the show, Sam, about her experience with post-natal depression.

If you’re struggling a bit, you can check out the great resources at Panda.org.au and Howisdadgoing.org.au. You can also always talk to someone at lifeline 24/7 – 13 11 14. Dads need care too.
