Comedian Nathan Timmel on Becoming a Parent

Cory Lewellen
Nathan Timmel

During the first year of his daughter's life, standup comedian Nathan Timmel missed a lot.

When she turned one-years-old, he vowed to be a part of her life even when he couldn't be at home. So he started writing letters, and that turned into a book.

On this Talk of Iowa interview, Charity Nebbe sits down with Timmel to talk about fatherhood, comedy, teenage shenanigans, how to be a good neighbor, and other topics he covers in his book, It's OK to Talk to Animals: (and Other Letters from Dad).

Charity Nebbe is the host of IPR's Talk of Iowa
