Dadvengers Podcast Episode 1 (Pilot) – Andy Day
Nigel here and I’m so excited that you are here to listen to the Dadvengers Podcast Episode 1 – Andy Day. I was so happy when CBeebies longest-serving Presenter, agreed to come on and have a chat. I know how busy he is, so the fact that he took time out on probably the hottest day of 2020 was much appreciated. We talked about everything from our child birth experiences, to how our fathers were with us, to how we are with our kids now. One of my favourite moments from our chat, was the story of Andy and his wife Cat, and their journey to the hospital as she went into labour. But the icing on this cake, is the reaction of the midwife in this already intense situation. It’s a good listen.
