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!

The Angry Ginger

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.

The Silver Fox

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.

Podcast

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”!

Blogger Tom Briggs best known from his Diary of the Dad Blog, joins Dan and Ginger to discuss fatherhood. Are things done differently across da pond? What’s it like managing a successful #DadBlog, especially once it becomes your main job. We recall the days of getting grounded as kids and getting the cable TV taken away. Now when we ground our kids, you have to amputate them! 

Find, Follow and say Hi to Tom on Twitter @DiaryoftheDad. Follow us @DeconstructDad but don’t you dare think about saying anything but “I love your face!” because you know we love your faces! 

See ya next week!
