About the Hosts

Lad Host


I'm Shaun I am 16 years old. I have learning difficulties and love sport I wanted to do this podcast to talk about the things I enjoy which include Football, Boxing, wrestling and MMA oh and my Xbox I love that.

I want to show just because I may not be very academic I can still do good things like this and hopefully encourage other people who maybe struggle at school to look into doing creative things.

I started out wanting to interview famous Rappers like AJ Tracey and Stormzy that hasn't happened yet but we have spoken to some cool people

Dad Host


I am Stuart, the dad in Dads and Lads the Podcast. I am a 38 year old train driver whose son wanted to do a podcast so here we are (I actually quite enjoy it sshh)

I decided to do it to hopefully raise awareness for children and young adults living with disabilities like Shaun because I know how hard it can be sometimes. We have actually ended up talking more about sports and fitness than anything else so far.

I want us to chat to all types of interesting people so we can learn a variety of things.
