New Line Life Podcast: Lineworker David Mendonca of the Show Up Dad Foundation

Dec. 15, 2023
Our December 2023 Line Life podcast features David Mendonca, a lineworker with 16 years in the trade, podcast host and executive director of the Show Up Dad Foundation.

As any lineworker knows, life in the line trade is not a 9-to-5 job. When severe weather hits, line crews must pack their bags, fuel up their bucket trucks and hit the road. 

When lineworkers are away from home for extended periods of time, their families must keep everything rolling. To help assist lineworkers who are also fathers, David Mendonca founded the Show Up Dad Foundation. 

After working in the line trade for 16 years, he started up the non-profit foundation to help fellow fathers balance their careers in the line trade with their family lives. As part of that mission, he launched a weekly Show Up Dad podcast, which is available on all major platforms. 

For our December 2023 Line Life Podcast, we are featuring an interview with David, who shares his personal story. To listen to the episode, which is sponsored by Huskie Tools, click here
