We RAD DADS is a show and community dedicated to improving the lives of Dads who put their families first. We are single fathers, men in blended families and dads of non-traditional families looking to learn the lessons of this difficult path from others who've journeyed this difficult path before us. Above all, we are caring and nurturing fathers who continually value and seek improvement for ourselves and other parents. We face our own struggles and seek to dominate them as a means to living a fulfilling life. Each week we find entertainment and value as we get to know a new guest, understand their situation, explore their struggles and learn how to navigate life's challenges through retrospect and experience. It is through this process we aim to find and share wisdom that you can employ in your own life. Please join us as we discover and distribute the value of first-hand experiences and insight told by those who are now living proof that you can too. We RAD DADS - Where wisdom meets entertainment.

Please welcome Paul Gilbride to the We RAD DADS podcast. Paul is a divorced dad, a father of 2 and stay at home dad who; through this opportunity, was able to live the life of passion he had not before imagined possible. In order for this to occur, Paul had to be willingly tempered by the flames of life and forged anew by way of constant; and sometimes indistinguishable improvement. Through Paul’s bomb crater and stratification of circumstance, he was able to find and focus on the tiny silver linings and pursue them to discover his true calling.
