Having kids makes building and maintaining friendships waaaay more complicated. Tyler (non-Dad) and the three dads hash it out - why don't we see each other as much? Why is it such a big deal to miss a kid's nap? Why did Derek miss Tyler's wedding? Is it ok to use your kids as an excuse to get out of things you didn't want to attend anyway (yes)? All of this plus a new segment called "you know what I hate?" where we just rant about stuff. Episode 8!
Taking family photos is inarguably the worst thing there is. The guys talk about why we even bother, explore the seemingly illogical desire for a third party to tell you that your kids are bad, and we interview a photographer (who is also married to one of us) about how to take photos with your kids. Also once again we have to talk about Andy taking his pants off.
The Holidays! The guys talk about presents, Santa, managing expectations, we get into some hot takes about Holiday-themed coffee drinks...all the important stuff. Also Derek unleashes an epic monologue about Christmas-themed TV episodes. It's a good one.
Our first interview! Josh Lovelace of NEEDTOBREATHE joins us to talk about his new kids record: "Josh Lovelace and Friends Present: Young Folk" (it hit #1 on iTunes!). We talk about being a great dad despite the constant need to travel, recording vegetable-related music in the middle of the night, and (of course) we play a stupid game with Josh and giggle a lot. A lot of people are saying that we're better interviewers than Barbara Walters, Marc Maron, David Letterman, etc. and they're all right.
Thanksgiving! Turkey, mashed potatoes, football, family and (once upon a time)...sweet sweet naps. The guys talk about navigating Thanksgiving with kids, Derek pays a weird homage to his dad via "stuffin' muffins," and Tyler tells us all about the worst Thanksgiving ever. Best day of the year!
Vacation Dad - can he be more than a cranky, hurried, harried ruiner of fun? The guys discuss vacations, how they've changed post-kids, and what to do about it. Derek's kids learn a swear word (kinda), Andy steals some fidget spinners...it's a good one. Also the return of Buzzfeed: Real or Fake?
Episode 2 is all about how the guys made babies. We discuss gas station nachos, Kevin's x-men baby that heals from the womb, and Tyler learns where babies come from! Also, we get into our first "Dadlemma:" should I leave this full diaper for someone else to deal with?
In this inaugural episode, the guys talk about why they're starting the podcast, lie about riding motorcycles, discuss why Coach Taylor is the GOAT TV dad, learn what the STEM acronym means, rant about bad Ziploc commercials...lots of good stuff. Episode 1!
