    We Lost Charlene to HGTV...

    Why You Should Travel With Your Young Kids (Replay)

    Dustin and Mel are in the Frontseat to discuss an article (ok...it's maybe more of a listicle) about the benefits of traveling with young kids. Topics include getting too old for back flips, how long is an appropriate amount of time to spend looking at the Washington Monument, and why you have to save New York as the last stop on your east coast trip (no offense, Philly). Plus, Backseater emails!

ADD Also

I set my timer for 15 minutes of focused housework, and I play Melissa and Dustin. They are young, honest, funny, and helpful.

Killin’ It!!

Dustin’s comedy is so natural! He has been doing it since he was a kid.. he just didn’t get paid for it back then! A sad Mariners fan, but working his way up to be one of the biggest comedians out there in a time when we could all use some good laughs! Keep it up bro!

Authentic and entertaining

Dustin and Mel have found a sweet spot in being both authentic and entertaining. They tackle real life challenges and help us non-travelers realize the challenges of life on the road. This podcast feels like sitting down with friends for dinner and is sure to make you laugh. Five bingo dingos.
