Welcome to Dad Jeans, the podcast of, by, for and about dadding in this infant century number twenty-one. Brought to you by two men—the formerly hip Jeffrey Dinsmore and formerly happening Brendan Hughes—who now have relatively young children and are sorting out what it is that has happened to their lives.
Each week we survey what the mommy blogs are saying, the ways in which we have failed our children, how we are trying desperately to remain cool, great moments in the history of fatherhood, and close as always with unsolicited fatherly advice.
Prisoners of Our Dad's Whimsy
Tonight we're talking about: Brendan's big move! The joys of pressure washing! Getting bikes! Big emotions! Hideous ear accessories! Whispering weirdoes!
The Chekhov Rule of Gunny Sacks
If I see a gunny sack in the first act, it better be deployed in the last.
Enjoy this pawsome new Dad Jeans for mew and meowers.
Always Titrate Everything
Happy New Year! Jeffrey and Brendan ring in the year with a new segment called AntiGra! ("Against the Grain") and we do a deep dive into maladies, our grave new world, Taytay and more.
Let the Artists Art!
More mush from the men of Dad Jeans. Today Brendan and Jeff discuss Cher's rib removal, facial tattoos, what to buy a 13-month old girl for Christmas, and the scourge of gifted and talented education. Listen in to equip yourselves for the coming week of parenting conundra.
Pulling a Shorty
Tonight we're talking about The Great Brain! Cumbergrinch! Watching vs. doing! B******t jobs! Talking things out! Politics and more politics!
B******t Jobs by David Graeber
