5 Dads, 50 Conversations, Tons of Fun

© style-photography.de - Fotolia.com

Woohoo!  This is EPISODE 50 of the Cast of Dads podcast!  As we hit this milestone, I thought I would share the tale of how the Cast of Dads came together…

Back when Sony came a callin’ and invited myself and four other dads to become “DigiDads” and get the chance to play with some of their products, of the five participating dads I only knew C.C. Chapman.  Since then I have had the pleasure of spending time in person with all of the former DigiDads (C.C., Brad Powell, Max Kalehoff and Michael Sheehan) but actually, the five of us have yet to meet as a group in person (brands, are you listening?)  During the DigiDad program we had regular conference calls together, and it was clear that, despite geographic, age, and kid-stage differences, we all got along great, and had a collective kindred spirit about life, parenting, and blogging.

When the DigiDad program ended we really didn’t want to stop our regular calls and our budding friendships, so we decided to keep the dream alive and start a podcast together.  The result is the Cast of Dads.  If you’ve been a regular listener you know that we don’t have much of an agenda.  Really, we’re just being ourselves and having a conversation, and inviting you to listen along.  Between us five dads we have thirteen kids, from toddlers to college grads, so we have lots to talk about and perspectives and opinions on just about every phase of parenting and fatherhood.  I  hope you’ve enjoyed these 50 episodes as much as we have.

Today, I consider Brad, Michael, Max and C.C. among my best of friends, and I truly look forward to every time we get together to record a show.  Of course, the Cast of Dads wouldn’t be half as much fun without you too!  We greatly appreciate your taking the time to listen, and always love hearing your comments and feedback.  THANK YOU!  We hope you’ll continue to tag along for the next fifty shows!

Lice, Lice, Baby! (Cast of Dads #34)

If you have kids then there is a good chance that at one time or another you may have found yourself scratching your head and asking “how do I get rid of lice???”  It’s a question that has been itching a few of the Cast of Dads (and their kids) so we talk about some things you can do when your family is having a lice time around the house.  Of course, we don’t cap our conversation at critters, and go off on several hair-raising and hair shaving tangents.  In addition, in the spirit of Halloween, it seems some digital devil has taken over CC’s voice, making his banter sound a bit like Beelzebub himself has joined the Cast of Dads…

From Diapers to Dirty Old Men: Cast of Dads #33

Even a few dropped calls and technical glitches could not stop the Cast of Dads from chiming in on anything and everything that might be on a Dad’s mind… As the title of this post says we dive into a discussion that starts with diapers and ends with sex.  (Perhaps we had things backwards as oftentimes it is the sex that leads to the diapers….  hmmm.)  We also continue our discussion on bullies and buying cars (unrelated, of course…)

Cast of Dads #32: An Educating Episode

From a toddler’s first steps to the steps we need to take to ensure the online safety and security of our kids, the Cast of Dads sound a bit more serious this week as we address our typically diverse topics.  Our serious tone was set perhaps by the breaking news as we recorded of the student suicide at Rutgers, which raised a number of online security and privacy concerns and sadly highlighted the very different world our kids are growing up in, where virtually anything and everything we do has the potential to be broadcast and amplified by the Internet.  Of course one topic is never enough for this group of gabbers and we go on to address everything from education to ranting on the so-called “Year of the Dad” in the Blogosphere…

Fart Is A Four Letter “F” Word… (Cast of Dads #31)

In this, the “Silent But Deadly” edition of Cast of Dads we dish about everything from decapitation to divorce (and no, there is no discernible connection between the two).  In true Cast of Dads form, even though we touch on some serious parenting issues, from safety helmets to adolescent desires, we still end up flabbergasted by flatulence in the end.  (Did I just say “flatulence in the end?”)  I had better put the kabosh on this preamble and just let you…

Cast of Dads #30: Stuffed Animals, Stuffed Mouths, and Other Stuff…

Before I post a new episode of Cast of Dads I always listen to it, and even though I was “there” and part of the recording, I try to listen back to the finished show as a “listener” and experience it as I hope you will.  I have to say, this show, our 30th episode, had me smiling, laughing and almost crying as we touch on so many fun, interesting and challenging fatherhood topics and experiences.  I am extremely proud to be a cast member with this group of dads and men, who I now consider among my best of friends,  and I truly hope you are enjoying listening to Cast of Dads even half as much as we are enjoying creating the show.  If you are, please let us know.  We’d love to hear from you!

Cast of Dads #29: From Dudes To Doggs…

One of the fun things about getting together with the Cast of Dads is that sooner or later each of us gets the chance to share an embarrassing moment…  Or maybe that’s just me who keeps sharing goofy moments?  Well, if it is me, this episode is no exception as I dive into a poorly sung rendition of one of my favorite childhood lullabies. Lullaby notwithstanding, I doubt this show  will put you to sleep as we cover topics as diverse as “negotiated infidelity,” Dude Ranches, sexy Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg as a Dad.

Cast of Dads #28: Stitches, Veggies and Scooping Poop

In this episode of Cast of Dads one of the dads tells of a late night spill that ended with a trip to the ER and some stitches… which leads to a discussion of kids and injuries… which leads to me recalling the tale of my daughter and her missing finger tip… (you’ll have to listen to the show for the rest of that story!)  In the midst of all the gory talk we manage to give some heartfelt parenting advice, and even some tips on cooking as a family.  Once again we prove that five dads and thirteen kids equals a treasure trove of tales to tell.  Enjoy!

Cast of Dads #27: Same Old Spit…

In the latest episode of Cast of Dads, we actually started the show with a couple of specific topics in mind: “Kewl Birthday Parties” and “the dangers of drowning.”  From happy to scary and everything in between we cover it all, and then some, in a show that combines serious parenting tips with a lot of goofy laughter.  A glitch in the phone system caused me to “hear voices” only on my end of the call, and one of the dads had a “live” parenting issue interrupt our recording for a little bit of unexpected drama.  In the end we learn that a pile of dirt just may be the best birthday party evah, and when it comes to multi-use liquids, spit wins hands down!  Enjoy!

Checks And Balances: Is It OK For Your Kids To Be Tattle Tales?

If you have more than one child at home do you find that they often “tattle” on each other? I have written about digital tattle tales before and on a recent trip to San Francisco I was thinking about it again, and how, in my case, counting on one or more of my kids to squeal on the other has become a defacto form of checks and balances when I am away from home.  I chat about this with one of my fellow “Cast of Dads” dads, Michael Sheehan from HighTechDad in the short video below.  Although I joke about the snitching being helpful to me, in retrospect I think the trust issue is more important and that I may be better off in the long run if I discourage my kids from being so loose with their lips (something about sinking ships…)  What do you think?

What do you think about kids that throw their siblings under the bus?  Does having kids who tattle on each other help or hurt?  Should the behavior be welcome or discouraged?   Feel free to tattle about it in the comments!

Cast of Dads #26: Hot Fun In The Summertime…

The heat was on for this week’s Cast of Dads show as the Northeast experienced record breaking (and air conditioning breaking) temperatures.  From the humidity to stupidity, we crack open some beer and wine and I cracked some of my usually corny jokes (well, you might not consider them jokes). I seemed to have had a problem with my microphone so I apologize for my tinny voice.  Luckily the other dads sound fine, and had more pithy things to say than me anyway.

Cast of Dads #23: Beer, Father’s Day, and the “Swedish Special!”

You may not like Mondays, but this week the Cast of Dads decided we did like them, especially since a Monday evening recording session allowed us to whet our whistles with beer, putting us all in an especially buoyant mood for our pre-Father’s Day show.

As dads ourselves we have the pleasure of celebrating both sides of Father’s Day, relishing in our roles as Fathers, and deeply appreciating the roles our own Father’s have played in our lives.  To all the dads in our audience, and to all the dads without whom we wouldn’t have an audience, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

Holiday or not, this wouldn’t be the Cast of Dads if we didn’t cover a TON of topics, and this episode is no exception.  Topics discussed include:

Cast of Dads #16: In One End, Out The Other…

In this episode of Cast of Dads, the Dads get down to the real poop of being a father.  While we always try to keep the show “family friendly” and avoid any potty mouthed talk, that doesn’t restrict us from talking about the potty, and this week we tackled both the input and the output of foodstuffs (amongst other topics).

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Potty Training
  • Peeing off the back porch
  • Doing the Orangutan Hang?
  • Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
  • Farmer’s Markets
  • Locally sourced food
  • Ketchup makes everything taste better
  • Eating with the kids
  • Magic Hat Howling Shepard’s pie
  • Meatloaf Cupcakes
  • A Cast of Dads Cookbook
  • Smoothies
  • Organic or not?
  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
  • Locally sourced restaurants
  • Being a Dad is FOREVER
  • Having parents nearby
