Hey hey … we’re back on our every-other-week schedule! In this episode it’s just us rapping about motivation. We explore the importance of motivation in accomplishing important stuff like exercising, practicing a sport, learning an instrument, going out with friends, or anything else that’s worth your time. Plus, a guys’ perspective on the Parents’ Association, and an update on Baker’s ADD treatment.
It’s been over a month since our last episode and Baker was in the editing bay crafting what could possibly be our best episode yet! This week we’re off the rails with writer/comedian/country singer/freestyle rapper and co-host of the popular podcast Missi & Zach Might Bang! Zach Selwyn (www.zachselwyn.com). Zach is a national treasure and we hope you enjoy this insane conversation. There are FIVE original songs (some improvised), countless tangents, and a few parenting tidbits. Have fun!

So, it’s been a while since we posted and here’s why: We had the very talented comedian, musician and co-host of the popular podcast Missi and Zach Might Bang!, Zach Selwyn on the show and it got crazy. It’s taken us a while to recover from the mayhem, but here is a promo clip from the upcoming Ep 22 of the At Home Dad Show. Zach freestyled this song about a surreal experience Baker had many years ago in Hollywood.

Zach’s hit podcast: Missi and Zach Might Bang!
Ahhhhhhhhh…. This episode is like a giant, contented exhale. The kids are back to school which means The Dads are finally free to get together and have a mid-morning rap. We recap the latest camping adventure, answer some listener emails and comments, preview next week’s episode (very exciting!), and follow up on our last show which saw Baker in a bit of an existential crisis (spoiler: he’s a little better now). Come on in, let’s rap!
See Baker and Adam’s Blackstone Griddle Face-Off here.
For Labor Day, we organized a big group from school to spend the long weekend “Glamping” at El Capitan Canyon. In short, it was a blast. We drank, we ate, we sang, we ate s’mores, we swam in the ocean. A perfect end to Summer!
Baker and I also hauled our Blackstone griddles up there giving us 72″ combined inches of grilling goodness. Everything from pancakes to eggs to bacon to tacos were prepared on the Blackstones.
On the final night, we served up tacos from the griddle including chicken, veggies, and Baker’s homemade carnitas (recipe forthcoming). It was a blast!
One of our friends took a video of our important warmup routine. Enjoy!
On this episode, we sit down with Nick Stauth a psychotherapist who specializes in kids and family. So, of course, we took advantage of some free shrink time! Adam feels he’s half-assing both work and family obligations. Baker is at the end of his rope as a Stay at Home Dad, feeling empty and unfulfilled. What does this mean for The At Home Dad Show???!! Plus, the Four Existential Truths, keeping your kids alive in the woods, and the right way to deal with bullies. Boy, we’re all over the map!

Summer is here and Camp Dad is in full swing. Adam takes us through his epic RV trip and how the boys fared that trek. We read listener e-mails and address some of the questions they face about parenting and handling being a stay at home dad. And we hit on the importance of games like “brutal family Sorry”.
After a summertime hiatus the show is back and this week full-time SAHD Daniel Roemer takes us through the ups and downs of the foster/adopt process and much more.
The hysterical Kent Rees, fellow Minnesota homie, brings a bottle to the session resulting in the first episode done under the influence of tequila. This high octane show veers off on strange and fascinating tangents including, but not limited to: Prince’s ashes, Minnesota nice, child barfers, “Operation Don’t Raise A Douchebag”, Organ Trail, TV marketing, Fathers Day, messing up Mother’s Day, existentialist cats and is supper elite?
One episode wasn’t enough to bring you all Chris Nowak had to offer. In the second half of our conversation, we discuss the best ways to give kids money (and to take it back from them); Chris makes a really, really good argument for letting your kids play football; and Adam and Chris relive the glory of their 50-person ribeye grilling triumph. If you missed Part I, be sure to go back and check it out!
Here’s the article that Chris references in the football discussion: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/10/what-liberals-get-wrong-about-football.html
