Daddy Panel 16: Transform and Roll Out!

Our panel of podcasters-turned-daddy-pundits talk about;

1. spouse-bashing (not in the physical sense and this is not a how-to guide, ladies…its how to avoid verbal smackdowns),

2. making punishment fit the family,

3. The transformers health plan,

4. Babies as products,

5. Moms in toolbelts, and

6. Perhaps we’ve found the solution to the mess that is our health insurance system.

Join PD, Greg, Dale and Dennis as they convene for this installment.



Am I being over-sensitive to the marketing tactics employed by the mega-red-retailer whose name is synonymous with concentric circles at the end of a pistol range, or is this just plain WRONG?

I was in my local red-themed store and found the piggy banks next to the one-armed bandits. Am I the only bozo on the bus who thinks this is a BAD IDEA?

I know, I know. The slot machine 'toys' are, in fact, banks. But what message is this sending to the kids? Is it telegraphing by reference that gambling is saving?

Just askin'...

...But DON'T GET ME STARTED on those Barbie checkout toys, complete with fake magnetic-stripe credit card!

Apologies for the bad photo, but its the best my cell phone could deliver. And for the record, and in the interest of full disclosure, I do not live in Las Vegas, near Atlantic City, and this photo wasn't taken in a community where gambling is 'legalized'.


Daddy Panel 15: Introducing Superman!

In this installment, the panelists Greg, Dennis, Kevin, Mike and newcomer Chuck convene to discuss kids party plans gone awry, noisy neighbors, "Do as I say, not as I do" and other parental power trips. We also discuss those summer plans that did (or didn't) quite pan out as we had hoped, and sing the babysitter blues.

(If you're looking for Episode 14, don't panic - its still being repaired)

Daddy Panel 13: Not Yet Rated

The title of this episode – the lucky 13 episode - is ‘Not Yet Rated’ because we talk about those words that we don’t talk about – at least around the little kiddies, that is. We get into ways to converse with adults without the kids picking up the vernacular and using it when – or where – they shouldn’t.

Not to worry – the show is safe for little ears.

We also talk about milestones in our kid’s lives – like their first REAL bed. We talk about other milestones that make us all think – wow – the kids ARE growing up!

Please Join PD, Greg, Rob, Dennis and newcomer Kevin as they convene the Daddy Panel.
