Zombies, Ostriches, and Unicorns...Oh My!...Parenting with comic writer James Breakwell - Episode #83


Get ready to laugh out loud! Today Dr. Dan treats listeners to an episode filled with humor and real life parenting advice from the hilarious author, professional comic writer, and (in his own words) “amateur father” James Breakwell (best known as the Twitter phenomena @XplodingUnicorn).  A parent of four daughters, James Breakwell is the popular author of several funny parenting books including the newest How to Save Your Child from Ostrich Attacks, Accidental Time Travel, and Anything Else that Might Happen on an Average Tuesday.  James tackles challenges ordinary challenges parents encounter in their own everyday lives and at the same time gives us all his fresh perspective and a great laugh, too.

Dr. Dan and James chat about parenting, humor, silly scenarios, pets, kids, jokes, and much more in today’s episode.  Dr. Dan has fun sharing why over one million fans follow James and his parenting adventures on Twitter.

At the end of the episode, parents will giggle like kids when they hear James talk to Dr. Dan about his Parent Footprint Moment involving his pet pigs.  Dr. Dan and James end the show with great advice – merely surviving every single day on the parenting journey is an enormous accomplishment.  

James Breakwell’s comedy went viral in April 2016 when Buzzfeed featured his kid-centric jokes in an article that quickly drew more than two million views. His jokes have been featured by USA Today, US Magazine, DailyMail.com, Metro.co.uk, Huffington Post, 9GAG, theCHIVE.com, CollegeHumor.com, and countless TV, radio, and internet outlets. James Breakwell’s articles have appeared in Reader’s Digest, The Federalist, and AskMen.  His next book Prance Like No One’s Watching will be published in spring 2020.
