Kristofer covers some of his background and the impetus for starting ManHusbandDad, revealing the ongoing struggles with the calling and the vocation while trying to understand and follow God’s will instead of his own. He describes the evolution of the concept, explaining it’s ongoing development and his own fears and concerns about it while explaining also his own development.

Father Albert Haase, OFM is mentioned, along with Kristofer’s relationship with his Spiritual Director and a lesson he learned from him at a retreat that became the seed for ManHusbandDad.
Here are the three songs Kristofer highlights as part of a ManHusbandDad regimen for fun, education, and contemplation when you are with your kids, by yourself, or just with your wife.
Just two minutes into the show, first up is “Greater” by Mercy Me:
Kristofer discusses how his family responds when this show comes on the Radio, and mentions this Sign Language version.
Kristofer takes another break about fifteen minutes in to play “I’ll find my way home” by Jon (Anderson) and Vangelis, afterward sharing how his understanding of the song relative to his life as a ManHusbandDad now and as an atheist when he first heard it has changed:
The show concludes with the song by Sanctus Real called “Lead me.” Kristofer sets up this song as the overalll theme of ManHusbandDad’s philosophy and community, recognizing that we can’t do this alone:
The intro to the show is a mix created by Kristofer when he was an on-air DJ in the early- to mid-1990s. It features the opening track from Janet Jackson‘s “Rhythm Nation” mixed with a sped up rendition of Jimmy Osmond‘s “Long haired lover from Liverpool” through actual “scratching” done by Kristofer back in the day, with the music bed that Kristofer talks over coming from Electronic’s “Lucky Bag.”
