    The Best Advice for New Dads

    In this new parenting episode, James shares some key tips he's learnt over the last few weeks from being a dad.

    These include:

    - Bracing for a lack of organisation in the first few weeks.
    - Working in shifts with your significant other to care for newborn.
    - Getting help from your friends & family.
    - Learning from strong resources (like books) vs. getting bad advice from the internet!

    The Truths Behind Those Biopic Movies - *RERUN*

    The Truths Behind Those Biopic Movies - *RERUN*

    As James takes a break for "Paternity Leave", this is the third episode as part of our brief "ReRun" series.  Be sure to follow @brosandblokes on the social medias for his key updates!

    --

    NOTES FROM ORIGINAL RECORDING:

    Our latest movie episode has arrived! This time, we review some of our favourite "biopic" movies and explore the "truths" behind some of the elements - whether in character depiction or in storytelling. Those movies are:

    - Captain Philips (2013)
    - Band of Brothers (2001- mini-series)
    - The Social Network (2010)
    - The Revenant (2015)
    - The Founder (2016)
    - United 93 (2006)

    Did the movie serve the actual events well, or were they overly-dramatised for cinematic affect? How was each main figure from the stories represented?

    NOTES FROM ORIGINAL RECORDING:

    In today's episode, James shares his in-depth knowledge of England's most popular sport and league - soccer (or Football as locals call it) and the English Premier League.

    We start with basic information on the league's format and points accumulation then look at the main teams to look out for, some significant rivalries and some of the key players (from England and from other countries.) We'll make comparisons in sport fandom between the US and Europeans and how the English Premier League has grown in popularity in the US over the last decade.

    NOTES FROM ORIGINAL RECORDING:

    In another Fitness check-in, the guys go over some ideas for working out at home. Tyler presents three different "Categories" of money, all dependant on budget. They are

    "Limited Budget", "Ready to Invest" and "Ballers"

    Each one presents each own unique workout structures that can help get you in better shape in your own home.

    Things to consider:

    - Learn the movements FIRST! This can be done by finding a well-established Fitness guru on Youtube or Instagram
    - Dedicate specific time each day to get your workouts in. Sometimes, people find it hard to separate chill-out time with workout time- especially in the home!
    - DON'T use a'Cat Litter TRAY' for your workouts! Use the Container that the Cat Litter comes in. (Listen to the episode to know what we're talking about here.)
