Today’s guest is first and foremost a dad. What began as a small playgroup in 2008 became the NYC Dads Group and in 2013 expanded into the City Dads Group network with 26 groups across the country. This diverse community supports dads of all stripes, providing opportunities to socialize as they navigate parenthood together.

In addition to co-founding these groups, he co-hosts The Modern Dads Podcast, a monthly show highlighting stories of 21st-century dads and families. He regularly contributes to and is quoted by media outlets interested in telling the stories of involved dads.

As an at-home dad myself, I was grateful to discover this network of involved fathers existed and have become actively involved with the Boston Dads Group. I had an opportunity to meet my guest in person at HomeDadCon, hosted by the National At-Home Dad Network.

Please join me in welcoming Matt Schneider.

In this episode we explore:

  • how he defines leadership, “Seeing an opportunity to make change and taking it. Having the wherewithal to step in.”
  • what is holding dads back from being full parents
  • the effort to change the media’s portrayal of dads
  • how he scaled his hyper-local playgroup to a national movement
  • ways he found to monetize as the group has grown
  • balancing being an at-home dad and entrepreneur
