    Episode 118: Opportunity Cost of Unfortunate Phlegm

    Episode 118: Opportunity Cost of Unfortunate Phlegm

    Felice Primavera! As we celebrate the first week of Spring 2022 and bring Season 4 of the podcast to a close, we look back at the many high points, of both this season and the four-season cycle as a whole. The stories we've learned, the advice we've taken, the mere act of conversation that sustained us while the world wobbled toward normalcy.
    And if we hadn't recorded before the Oscars, we probably would have spent a good bit of time telling Will Smith to sit on his hands in timeout and think about what he did.

    Episode 117: Joel Willis Leans Into the Ironic Bigness

    Born on April 1st and raised in a town that gambled on cow poop, Joel Willis began his editorial career with a dad blog called the Glad Stork. From there, after years as a contributing writer at Scary Mommy, he was tapped to pilot The Dad as its editor-in-chief in 2017.
    We talk about the content and strategies that built a platform of two million Instagram followers, integrating with its new step-brother Fatherly, and how dad jokes can be deployed as "the neutron bomb of conversation."

    Episode 116: Charlie Capen and the Sympathy Viral Load

    On the fifth anniversary of the day he joined GISH, Charlie Capen returns to talk about what it's like when your job is finding where help is needed and marshaling big-hearted weirdos to fill that need. Each year, Misha Collins's brainchild generates global goodwill, in funds and in deeds, by gamifying the generosity of its players.  
    We also talk about how to regenerate and focus your philanthropic energy, helping your kids interpret the current news, and why he'd rather be publicly naked than turn 40.

    Episode 115: The Night Dave Lesser Chose His Children

    We also talk about how running helps him manage his addictive tendencies, adopting his child's nonbinary pronouns, and his new career as a preschool teacher and writer of children's books.

    Episode 114: The Dumb Dads Never Found Their Keys

    Episode 114: The Dumb Dads Never Found Their Keys

    After auditioning for a few too many "dumb dad" roles, actors Kevin Laferriere and Evan Kyle Berger found the perfect name for their Dumb Dad podcast and TikTok channel. And in their short, comedic history, they've built some huge platforms based on some widely shared viral moments.
    We talk about their origin story, outline their publication strategies, and explain the discipline needed to make content around their lives as stay-at-home dads with young children. Comedy and fatherhood, it turns out, have a lot in common if you're not afraid to fall on your face.

    Episode 113: When Aymann Ismail Lost His S—t

    Slate staff writer Aymann Ismail nearly pulled his first-person piece about postpartum depression and anxiety because it seemingly paled in comparison to pregnancy's physical toll on women. Just two months later, it has gone viral, generated conversations all over the world, and inspired a forthcoming book.
    We talk about the state of modern journalism, growing up Muslim in the shadow of the World Trade Center, the tyranny of too much information, and how his marriage and fatherhood have regained their footing.
