- Deconstructing Dad Podcast
Two divorced dad’s discussing fatherhood, while comically attempting to manage all of life’s successes and failures. We’re not professionally trained, we’re just like you!
Obsessed content creator and showrunner is a pop culture zeitgeistologist and streaming channel surfer that is fluent in sarcasm. He is chock full of sexual innuendos and is the inventor of Dutch Mud Flaps. Also an Armed Nuclear Security Officer and a divorced father of five humans. Also moonlights as a mild mannered witty writer.
Dan Evans – The better looking, other redhead (well, former… it’s more grey now… whatever is left of it) of the Deconstructing Dad Dynamic Duo. (Fuck it, let’s just call him a silver fox). The former NJ Transit ranting machine, Dan is now enjoying working from the basement of his new home, avoiding camel crickets and trying to figure out what to do with all of that bad 70’s wood paneling in said basement.
In this episode, Ginger scars his son, whom he thought was sleeping in the backseat, but apparently was wide awake and getting a life lesson from an Eminem Song. Dan becomes a Home Depot-Set Building-Theater Dad. We read about a mother who gets pulled over for drunk driving but denies ever having a drink… until her frightened unbuckled young son tells the truth from the backseat.
We also share a Top 10 list of Hardships we’ve had as single fathers.
In this thought to be lost forever pre-christmas episode, Dan and Ginger discuss the holidays and upcoming plans, the adorble cutness of childrens school christmas concerts and how that wears off. Dan also looks back at a time in his youth when he was part of a championship football team and contemplates making a documentary… once he comes into some money that is.
Dan has had it up to hear with parents weaponizing their children. Off with the dead beat dad’s heads.
Ginger’s health has taken a surprising turn. Two words, “Heart Attack”? Maybe it’s not that bad? Maybe he’s in denial?

Wrapping up our second day of Podtoberfest. The final hour and half of it all, The Maier’s (Chris and Kristen), from How Was Your Week Honey join us to not really discuss parenting as much as we discuss things because we are parents.
In what starts out as a great weekend for Ginger, a surprise birthday party, attending a post pandemic concert (is it post?), and family photo’s, suddenly turns into one bad thing after another! One kid takes a trip to the hospital, another gets in a bad car wreck while another decided Covid is what the house was missing. All of this and sooooo much more.
Dan finally lands a beauty and feels blessed. We discuss how odd it is to be with someone that’s actually supportive and that darn Elf on the shelf gets brought up, so does a family vacation and we wrap things up with Dan’s kid struggling with his decision to sell the family home for a home without a breeze because of better insulation and of course a better school district.
Dan is thinking about getting a Vasectomy. Jay recently got one. What better time than now then to relive the horror of it all. We’re 6 weeks out since Jay had one, so after dropping off his sample he shares the good the bad and the very ugly of it all.
We are also both in relationships. We’ve got kids. They’ve got kids. Small discussions have begun, in different ways, of how we are going about blending our families.
Before we go, we give shoutouts to the Dad’s that have recently come on and shared their stories with us and to the Maier’s from the excellent podcast called “How Was Your Week Honey”!
So, what’s on your mind?
