Eusebius McKaiser facilitates a discussion with fathers who are present in their children's lives.

A new Life podcast series titled Son of a Son presented by photographer Kgabo Legora speaks about how better men raise better children.

The podcast aims to lift fathers who are raising and are active participants in their children's lives.

RELATED: 'A father's involvement in childcare is a women's rights issue'

Legora along with musician Mo-T and comedian Nicholas Goliath join Eusebius McKaiser to speak about how it is like to be a father.

I had an idea to just have a podcast where I can talk to other dads because two years ago, we were expecting twins and I realised that I was not ready for it. I just needed to talk to other dads.

Kgabo Legora, Photographer

It is important for a father to be involved in their children's lives, Goliath says.

Everything you teach them now in their formative years determines the type of person they will be when they grow up. I have two sons and the scariest thing is how do I raise boys that are not going to be on a list. I need to make sure that I give them all the right information so that when they grow up they are decent men.

Nicholas Goliath, Comedian

Mo-T says his father was present when he grew up and inspired him to pursue a career in music.

He was my best friend, he was a funny guy who loved joking around, he was very humble and had a good heart.

Mo-T, Musician

Goliath says his father also played a huge role in his life and is still around even to this day.

He made me the guy that I am, he made me not to care about what others thought of me. He likes saying: 'You can please some of the people some of the time but never all the people all the time.'

Nicholas Goliath, Comedian

Legora says his father has always been in his life.

He was a teacher, a lecturer and when your child says 'I love photography', it threw him off a bit but he has been great.

Kgabo Legora, Photographer
