Getting Saucy on Cast of Dads Episode #45 “Dads CAN Cook Even When Sauced”


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a conversation about a social media campaign that tried to use modern day social media tactics but using a very old and outdated stereotype, that of Dads not being able to cook and having to rely on bottled alternatives.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.

Chapman , Jeffrey Sass , Max Kalehoff , Michael Sheehan , and Brad Powell , who collectively represent 13 kids from the youngest of babies to full grown adults.
