On Episode #6 of the Cast of Dads podcast titled “Truckers Love Technology,” we spent much of the podcast answering a question sent in by a daddy trucker (“Jokerman” by his handle). Jokerman had some questions about technology specifically from a driver’s perspective. When I think about it, I simply could not live with my daily dose of various podcasts, so I must think about those who make their living behind the wheel and how the podcast must be something of great importance. It’s cheaper than satellite radio and very targeted – you get just the particular audio content that you are desiring. I’m glad the we have gotten the attention of at least one truck driver and hope that others follow suit.
Hello, how are yall ? I really enjoy the show and it’s about time there’s a show for us dads! Unlike the 4 of you, I’m new to the tech world (lol) although I could possibly help any of you drive! I go by the name of Jokerman as I’m a OTR truck driver, and yes, I’m a proud dad of a 13 year old teen and a 3 year old, both boys . I recently got an iPod Touch and (lol) there aren’t many fellow truck drivers that are tech savvy like yall! Could the C.O.D. do a show to catch some of us up on iPods, MP3’s and the reader/tablets to catch those of us non-techies up ? Thank all of you for the show and keep up the good work !
