Even though South by Southwest (SxSW) is long over, the memory lives on. 3 of the 5 dads from Cast of Dads were there for this great conference which takes place in Austin, Texas and we decided to do something a bit different. The Cast of Dads that were at SxSW ventured over to the Dad Labs studio and we recorded our first ever video podcast, using the miracles of broadband connections, webcams and Skype.
In this episode, the “locals” were Daddy Brad (from DadLabs.com), CC Chapman (from DigitalDads) and Jeff Sass (from Dad-O-Matic) while Max Kalehoff (from AttentionMax) and I were remotely hooked in. It was actually a pretty fun episode to record and while we normally focus on doing audio podcasts, we have proven to ourselves (and hopefully to you) that video is a great way to have conversations as well.
Our full video podcast is below:

As usual, we dive into a variety of parenting topics and it pretty much felt like we were all in the same room. Gotta love modern day technology. But my view was that of the guy filming the podcast and not the other dads so it took some getting used too. Here are a couple of (very blurry) photos that I snapped using my iPhone of my view:

Cast of Dads is a group of podcasting and blogging dads who gather to gab about fatherhood. The cast of dads includes C.C. Chapman, Jeffrey Sass, Max Kalehoff, Michael Sheehan, and Brad Powell, who collectively represent 13 kids from the youngest of babies to full grown adults. Each of them brings a unique perspective to being a father.
