We had quite a few topics stewing to be discussed on Cast of Dads Episode #45 “Dads CAN Cook Even When Sauced“. For starters, we had a conversation about a social media campaign that tried to use modern day social media tactics but using a very old and outdated stereotype, that of Dads not being able to cook and having to rely on bottled alternatives. The funny thing is, we actually DO use bottled alternatives when cooking, just that they tend to be alcohol-based and we drink them while we cook from scratch!
I made it a point to be actually cooking from scratch (see the picture below) when recording this podcast. I think what irritated us most was the fact that one of the reasons why the 5 of us dads get together regularly to record our show is to refute many of the stereotypes typically associated with dads and parenting. Dads are involve more than ever with the upbringing of our children and we get together to discuss these changes and how to become better parents in the process. Another thing that we are extremely tired of is getting “mommy-centric” PR pitches which we regularly receive. But that is a topic for another, on-going discussion.
We got into a lot of other saucy topics in the podcast, with our usual creative banter. But you will just have to listen to the show to hear those!
Here are some of the topics we covered in Episode #45:
- Ragu Hates Dads?
- Stereotypes of dads still being embraced by brands
- Cooking is a life skill that all kids should learn
- Where did WE learn to cook?
- Baking vs. Cooking
- The difference between BBQing and Grilling
- Beautiful time of year for sports
- Maker Faire
- The panic of losing a child for a few minutes
- Chuck E’ Cheese
- Oregon’s new high school sporting event rules upsetting many
- Footloose (the original, not that remake crap that is coming out)
- Anyone want a Beagle?
- Louisville, Kentucky
- Hillbilly Tea
- ABC Kids Expo
