A New Olympic Sport? The Orangutan Hang! – Cast of Dads Podcast #53


As the summer starts to wind down, the Cast of Dads convened via the phone waves again to record another laughter-fill and educational podcast, “Orangutan Hang and the Olympics.” With just days to the start of the Summer Olympics 2012 in London, we believe we might have figured out another Olympic sport – the Orangutan Hang – but you will have to listen to the podcast to understand what it was all about.


Episode #53 ran the gamut of topics, anywhere from talking about DEET, West Nile Virus and popping mosquitos, to really enjoying Olympic warmups understanding driving distractions and memories of time past. For me, my thoughts were around an upcoming solo ballet performance of my oldest daughter in a fundraising gala hosted by the Dizzy Feet Foundation. As of the writing of this article, the gala has taken place and it was a huge success. For those of you who like So You Think You Can Dance, you might recognize the people below:


If you didn’t, they are Twitch, Allison and Lil’  C. And my daughter’s gala ticket was sponsored by Summer Glau:
