Tale of the Tape: Larry Hagner

Larry Hagner is the host of The Dad Edge Podcast, a podcast dedicated to helping men become the best versions of themselves so they can raise the best versions of their children.


While packing for a move to a new house, Larry hit rock bottom as a dad when he lost his cool. What he did afterward made him turn inward for some deep introspection. And what came out of that was The Good Dad Project, and later, The Dad Edge Podcast. Larry breaks down some important must-do’s for fathers, like winning the mornings and being transparent.
