    Lake of the Strangers

    In celebration of Lake of the Strangers winning the Sterling Award for  Outstanding New Play (they were nominated for four awards), and in connection with Naheyawin, I've revisited my viewing of the play so many months ago. I was sent a series of questions about how I was affected by the work. I also did a review of the show.

    Three stories I'd like to tell. A western, an eulogy, and a parable.

     A collection of news stories on...you guessed it...bad parents. AND my thoughts on some of the topics. This will probably be a recurring theme. Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Mr. Andrew Paul came back from visiting the land of the rising sun with a series of very good questions. He thought he'd ask me them. And more!

    As a father to two kids who are under five years of age, I need to try new things. So, in this incarnation of The UnDad Podcast, I review several songs by the South Korean super boy band BTS. With the help from Twitter of course.

Creative, hilarious, touching

Trent brings all of his talents to bear on that most fundamental of topics — family. In interviews, he is curious and clever; in his more "solo" episodes, he shows his storytelling and improv chops, with some musical touches now and then, too. The cameos from Mrs. UnDad and the beans are delightful.

Great insights

Really interesting and fun.

I love Trent's voice in all it's forms

Trent has a unique voice into making sure family and parenting is put not only into his own perspective but not into a cliche perspective you might get from other parenting shows. Trent is a treasure and this pod shows it.
