I just made a personal record for the most number of cheeseburgers consumed in a July 4 weekend: six.
I’m serious. It wasn’t intentional, nor my fault. Serendipity played out — each day’sÂ barbecue, starting on Friday of the long weekend and continuing through Monday, featured cheeseburgers as the main course.Â Â While that’s bad — disgusting, really — C.C. Chapman, my fellow dad on the Cast of Dads podcast, one-upped me with his involvement in concocting and digesting a Bacon Explosion. (And no, it’s not a bodily reaction. It’s a food.) To learn more about our bacon and burger vices, check out our latest episode of the Cast Of Dads.
Importantly, we now have a new rule and ceremony for every recording: each dad has to have an adult beverage in hand, and give a shout-out to that brand during the opening introductions. A great way to celebrate our favorite beer and wines of the world. And it makes for a more lively, culturally rich dad discussion!
Cast of Dads is a group of podcasting and blogging dads who gather to gab about fatherhood. The cast of dads includesÂ C.C. Chapman,Â Jeffrey Sass,Â Max Kalehoff,Â Michael Sheehan, andÂ Brad Powell, who collectively represent 13 kids from the youngest of babies to full grown adults. Each of them brings a unique perspective to being a father.
