Paul Costabile and Xilla Valentine are two hosts who came together to start the HOST DADS podcast – to discuss parenting, tell jokes, and give insight on their view of the world. In this special episode, Paul and Xilla interview men of all ages to discuss how they deal with regrets. They also tackle a dreadful 2020 and how it changed the world, and what we can learn from mistakes.
The video starts with The HOST DADS on a socially distant hike as dads of leisure sharing fatherly war stories. Next, Xilla recalls his last chat with the late Chadwick Boseman, where Chadwick reveals he has nothing to complain about, despite being in a 4 year battle with colon cancer.
When asked to look back on the last 5 years of his life Chadwick Boseman told DADXILLA:
“I think you essentially have to make peace with all of the choices that you make. Because even if it’s something that feels wrong. It’s setting you up, it truly is. Plus, you learn from all those experiences so I don’t feel like I have anything to complain about. I’m always just looking ahead to be honest…”

Then 83-year-old Willie B reflects on 8 decades of life, losing his business to drug addicts and nasty gambling addiction. Plus he explains how his worry-free life keeps him chugging along.
