Hope that title grabbed you! The latest episode of the Cast of Dads podcast #19 is now live and is titled “Why Write It When You Can Touch It?” The Cast of Dads discuss the future of the written letter, keyboards and the types of devices our kids and grand kids will have. We all agree that we are at a revolutionary (or evolutionary?) point where the physical keyboard may be going the direction of the Dodo. Media input devices are changing and our kids are getting used to voice commands, touchscreens and everything interactive.
In Episode #19 we “touch” on a variety of topics, not just limited to technology, including:
- Wives mowing the lawn
- Thank You Notes
- Resurrection of hand written letters
- Teaching writing in school
- Dragon Dictation
- Dodo Case (iPad case that look like a Moleskine notebook)
- Paper vs. Digital Note Taking
- Gesture based interactions
- Minority Report
- Quitting Facebook
- Kids social networks
- Keep Her Off the Pole
- The social commentary of WALL-E
- Netflix HD Streaming
- Home Gardening
- Investing in grills during a recession
- Building a fire pit
- Computers in kid’s bedrooms
- Grandparents changing the rules
- Becoming a Grandfather

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.
