After the success of the previous series, Dave Berry’s Dadpod is returning with a new line-up of guests to provide Dave with helpful and humorous insights into the world of parenting.
Dave’s daughter Evie has now just turned two, meaning the Absolute Radio host is getting ready to explore the well-known phrase ‘terrible twos’.
Each episode of the podcast will have a famous face helping Dave to navigate these times. The conversations celebrate the heart-warming and exciting moments of fatherhood, as well as reflections on their own childhoods.
This series guest highlights include athlete and Olympian Sir Mo Farah, comedians Griff Rhys Jones and Jason Manford, plus culinary connoisseur Gregg Wallace, who features on this week’s episode, available today, 13 May.
Gregg is a father to three children Tom, Libby, and Sid and talked candidly with Dave around having children again at an older age. He also talks about living with his in-laws and the difficulties around.
Although he wouldn’t choose to have children at his age, Greg says because that’s what his wife Anna wanted, he wanted it too. “I think if you fall in love with a young woman and you tell her you don’t want children; I don’t think you actually love that woman,” he says.
Tom and Libby were raised by Greg as a single parent and he says that now being married, this time it’s easier, especially having help from his in-laws, “I found it so much easier two of us sharing it, in fact a lot easier four of us sharing it,” he admits.
Apparently, a lot of journalists are intrigued by the fact his family lives with his in-laws, but Greg says: “It’s not an English thing, it’s not a British thing but it is most certainly an Italian thing. It’s not unusual for whole families to live together.
“I personally love it and I think it’s just a shame that I couldn’t give it to my two growing up, I think it’s a fantastic thing and I would recommend it to everybody.”
