    Peak Adulting and Nick Jr Nostalgia: ODO 202

    Peak Adulting and Nick Jr Nostalgia: ODO 202

    It's another silly brain week. But this week I came to the realization that I may have reached peak adulting. Honestly I may be a little too excited about my new rake and my wife's new office chair. We also spent most of the week binging and introducing our boys to the Nickelodeon shows of our childhood via the new Paramount+ streaming service. I've gotta admit that I get a bit defensive of my TV nostalgia after a bit. But I stand by all of it.

    I'm feeling a little silly this week. I don't know why, but I was just in a giggly mood through this whole episode. Maybe it was the long night. Maybe it was the instant coffee at 3 am. I was just in a goofy mood. So try as I might to talk about the boys going back to on-campus school, I just tangented all over the place. Badass grilled cheese, sibling rivalry, Queen Elizabeth, and other random brain farts. As well as a return of "BS From the News" with a pirate Airbnb, a divorce over penis size, and another catastrophic gender reveal. Enjoy!

    Worst Foot Forward Ep 201: Carl Donnelly - World's Worst Coffee (Operation Switcheroo 2021)

    This week, the show has been taken over by the podcast “Worst Foot Forward” as part of Operation Switcheroo. Find them at https://worstfootforward.libsyn.com/ and on Twitter at @WorstFoot or email worstfootforwardpodcast@gmail.com.

    "An encyclopaedia of heroic failure Join Ben Van der Velde, Barry McStay and their guests as they brandish their wooden spoons of destiny and celebrate the losers, heroic failures and spectacular mis-steps that pockmark human endeavour. If you ever want to feel better about your progress in life, take a listen and enjoy a lovely schadenfreude bubble bath."

    Worst Foot Forward Ep 201: Carl Donnelly – World’s Worst Coffee

    This week’s episode is going to gently percolate into your ears over several hours, but only after passing through the digestive system of both Ben and Barry. Joined by one of the finest stand-ups on the British circuit and self-confessed coffee snob Carl Donnelly (as well as fastidious father and son Patreon judging team David and Tyler), we enjoy tales of furious Ottoman emperors, how the CIA enjoy their coffee and the hollow depths of Melbourne hipster coffee culture

    Weekend At Patagonia's: ODO 199

    Weekend At Patagonia's: ODO 199

    For the sake of trying my best to focus on something, This week is all about our latest experience in mini-vacationing. We took a little spring break trip to a cabin at the Patagonia Lake State Park. Long story short, it was a gorgeous view of a beautiful lake in southern Arizona with hiking trails, lots of birdwatching, and lots of campfire cooking. It was also freezing balls, windy as hell, and I was constantly being dragged around by an annoyingly curious husky. Oh yeah, and there were wild cows.
    Plus an update on some format changes I'm considering, and a reminder to get me your questions for my attempted episode 200 Q&A. If you don't give me your Q's, I can't give you any A's!!

    After a bit of a giggle fit and some philosophizing over the relationship dynamic between children- their teachers- and their parents, I get into our latest endeavor with Charlie, martial arts. Then, an update on the garden as we try to figure out how we're going to plant our spring vegetables when half of our winter crops still aren't ready to harvest.

I get it!

This podcast is one of my favorites! I can relate to so much of the content! And I personally just love a good laugh.

Some Kind of Brown Podcast ,

Oddly chill and entertaining!

Listening to the Odd Dad Out episodes is like hanging out with a good friend; kids being crazy, life being crazy, news being crazier. Adam is like the Northerlion of podcasts and I love listening to the episodes when I'm working on something!
