Farter Figures Logo

Episode 6 is online and guess who made headlines in Dad news….


On this episode of Farter Figures we discover stay at home dads. They are still uncommon in Australia but I speak to three dads about their duties remaining home to look after their children. We talk about the challenges, isolation, stigma, and good times that come with being a stay at home dad.

I also chat to a Jennifer Baxter, a senior research fellow at the Australian Institute of Family Studies about her research into the low numbers of Stay at home dads in Australia.

It’s a really eye-opening episode with no shortage of laughs, dad content and all the usual segments that make Farter Figures special.

Farter Figures has also announced it is having a Fathers Day special!
