Episode #7 – Eat all your food!

Real Brothers, Real Dads, Real Problems!

Hey all,

Go to the fridge, get a beer and sit back for another fun filled episode with the safetynerd, the spacenerd and the waternerd. 

  • John talks about kids not cleaning their plates (people are starving in Ethiopia)
  • Matt regales us about buying a sequoia to use as a christmas tree in their new house; and
  • Mark tells us of the benefits for wrestling with your kids.  (but beating them is still frowned upon apparently)

New segment – Video Games worthy of a busy dad’s time by Matt

Kudos and good luck to Zack in his new job!

Episode #6 – Now With Random Topic Format!

Hey there dork dads!

Grab a beer and get ready for another fun-filled episode of Engineering Fatherhood.  In our new format, we each brought a small random topic to the table.  John tells about bringing a grand daughter to Victoria’s Secret – Coupons and Panties oh my!  Matt tells us about nightmares and creepy stuff while Mark schools us in proper urinal standing distance. 

Sorry for the brief hiatus but as you all know, life is a very full thing for a father…  Life, liberty, diapers, and the pursuit of happiness can really make you tired.  John had a son leave the nest leaving him both happy and sad.  Matt baptized a daughter and bought a new house.  Mark was traveling the world in search of water nerd cred.  At some point Matt and Mark wound up in separate casino cities (Vegas vs AC) and the fateful 11:11 on 11/11/11 occurred.  Oh the stories we could tell!  (but we wont of course).

Anyway, here is the episode: – Engineering Fatherhood Episode 6

Happy listening!


Episode #5 – Potty Training

Hey all,

We have a treat this week for all 12 of our listeners!

We tell all that you ever need to know about potty training.  Well, we talk about it anyway.  I think the only real advice we give is ‘dont stress out!’

If you want to hear about Matt’s ‘baptism’, John’s pizza hut extravaganza and the meaning of the terms ‘code brown’ and  ‘racing stripe’ then tune in below.
