AE 807 – The Goss: Fatherhood & Being a First-Time Parent in Dad’s Era vs Mine

Learn Australian English by listening to this episode of The Goss!

These are conversations with my old man Ian Smissen for you to learn more about Australian culture, news, and current affairs.

In this episode, we talk about the difference between being a first-time parent in the 1980s versus me today. We both feel that parents may certainly have it easier these days. It all comes down to the joy of watching your kid grow: simply just being there for them, all the way.
