Cool Birthday Parties, Pool Safety & Live Parenting Failures Round Out “Cast of Dads” Episode #27


Sorry for the delay in posting about our latest Cast of Dads podcast. Coordinating family schedules are hard enough…but when you attempt to coordinate 5 different schedules from different families, it’s a monumental task. And even after we record, there is still the production work that has to take place (bit hat tip to CC Chapman for his hard work compiling and editing the show weekly). Still, we were able to get together to have, as always, a lively discussion on Episode #27Piles of Dirt & Possessed Phones“. And we had some excitement going on LIVE during the call…but you will have to listen to the podcast to hear what I’m talking about.


Note: we are always looking for sponsors! If you would like to sponsor an individual episode or a series of episodes, please do let us know.

Also last week, Jeff Sass and I met up IN PERSON again to film a quick clip outside of our regular podcast. This was filmed at a local tech meetup in San Francisco called SFBeta. We decided to quickly cover a hot topic that parents face regularly, that of Tattle Tales. You must admit, the color of the graffiti on the wall behind us sure is vibrant! Oh, and I don’t REALLY have a camera in my kids’ rooms…I just tell them that. Being a HighTechDad, I can get away with just the mention of it without actually doing it.
