Check out The Daddy Leave Diaries: our new podcast

6 March 2022

Reform of the parenting leave system is a big priority for the Fatherhood Institute. The current system is among the most gender-imbalanced in the developed world, and leaves dads out in the cold. As part of our Time with Dad campaign, we will be publishing a video and briefing paper proposing what we think is a better approach, soon. In the meantime, check out these recommendations we put forward in our Cash or Carry (2017) evidence review.

Very few dads are in a position to take shared parental leave, but one who is, Dr Mark Gatto, a lecturer at Northumbria University Newcastle Business School, has kindly agreed to share his experiences, via a podcast we’ve called The Daddy Leave Diaries.

We’ll be posting new episodes roughly ten times in his baby’s first year. Here’s the link to the podcast home page: you can listen via Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Please note: the Time with Dad campaign, and The Daddy Leave Diaries podcast, are unfunded projects. If you would like to support our work, you can make a one-off donation via Givey.
