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 this episode Jay and Dan are joined by regular guest Courtney “The Quadfather” Calkins!

We discuss the tricky techniques of coded texts. What do you and your kids have pre-planned so your kid can get out of a sticky situation without any explanation or backlash?

An article from the 1950’s was unearthed here at Monkey Poo Studios and these Modern Day Dad’s discuss what makes a man happy today… from the days long ago. Would any of this “Make sure the kids are quiet when he comes home” …”Have a cold drink waiting for him” kind of crap fly these days?

All of this, plus we ask some “Get to know more about each other” questions.

Thanks for listening.

In this episode Courtney Calkins, a licensed marriage & family therapist for over 20 years, returns to the show to discuss the 5 stages of grief after a separation or divorce. We talk about my mindset with dealing with loneliness and how important it is to take the time to find out who I am before entering into a relationship.

He also brings the show a couple of gifts in the form of some audio from Bert Kreishcher’s new comedy special on Netflix, “Secret Time”. Which gets us talking about whether or not our kids are really stupid, and how sometimes they feel we are just as dumb!

The Quadfather returns to help me review Black Mirror’s ArkAngel episode.

If you’re not familiar with this show… I think you can still listen and then decided if it’s something you’d like to watch.

This series always makes me think about so many aspects of life. This episode allows us to focus on parenting. How much should you as a parent insert yourself into the life of your child?  If you could use an implant to see what they see, and protect them from harm… would you? What if that meant you accidentally tuning into them losing their virginity?

For every possible way you can think of that would help you to better protect your child… there’s another possibility you’re hindering your child from growing up and developing through good and bad experiences to become a healthy person.

Where is the line? When to helicopter… and when not.
