Show 115: Co-Parenting

Kristen Daukas

Kristen Daukas is back in the Lowder seat, and this time she and Tim discuss co-parenting with former spouses.  This can be a landmine filled journey but as both hosts can attest, keeping your wits about you, being rational, and quelling the emotional flood can go a long way to keeping things from exploding.  Of course there are bad moments, that is life, but Kristen and Tim offer sage advice on how to navigate the tricky waters, and do what is best for the kids.

The Beer of the week is Mexicali Stout by Birdsong Brewing in Charlotte, NC

The show was recorded in the new Test Pattern Studios. Test Pattern is located at 701 N Trade Street in good ol’ WSNC. Check out the Test Pattern page for more on their happenings.

Show 114: Live Without a Net

Kristen Daukas

Sometimes, you talk and act, talk and react to the things your kids are doing. Yes, we try to help them learn and take personal responsibility but you can only do so much to actually guide them. At some point, they have to take the reins for themselves. What happens when you get to that point? Do you let them fail? If you do, are you a bad parent? Do you save them once again? Does that only teach them that responsibility only means “Mommy or Daddy will bail them out” when it’s all said and done? That’s a tough call to make. Special guest host Kristen Daukas talks with Beer Dads Tim & Paul as Jon is still on assignment.

This week we try Sidecar Orange Pale Ale by Sierra Nevada.

The show was recorded in the new Test Pattern Studios. Test Pattern is located at 701 N Trade Street in good ol’ WSNC. Check out the Test Pattern page for more on their happenings.

Show 111: Driving Miss Daisy Crazy

Beer Dad Jon is out “on assignment” this episode so our trusted sub, Miss Stacy is in to help Beer Dads Paul and Tim out. In this ep, Tim’s son, 3B turns 15 and gets his learner’s permit. Tim’s pretty scared. But, he’s not alone in this boat. Stacy also has a 15-year old just a few months older than 3B and she shares some of her experiences and Paul, whose own son is just a few years in on driving experience also chimes in. It’s an eye-opener and pretty funny, too.

Show 110: The Big Debut

Beer Dad Tim and his pilot had a fancy-dress function and it came up on a Sunday. Sundays are one of the days that Tim has with his son, 3B. So, Tim purchased some dress pants and a button up for 3B, along with a red tie. He looked smooth. But, it was his first turn at a fancy-dress shindig and Tim talks about how it went down. Beer Dad Paul, Beer Dad Jon and Scott Dickson chime in on the situation. Good stuff. Incidentally, today is 3B’s 15th birthday. Happy birthday!

Show 109: Money (or the Lack Thereof)

Money doesn’t grow on trees. We know that. But, some people do well with money. Some people do not. Sometimes a couple can’t agree on how to spend what they do have and sometimes that leads to bad consequence. Oh, the cost of things. Oh, the cost of not having money.

Okay, so none of those things are true, but you may be surprised to find out some of the things that we do consider “guilty pleasures.” What’s your favorite guilty pleasure, or something that people may be surprised to know that you enjoy.

Show 107: This Call May Be Monitored

What happens when customer service breaks down? We talk about the debacle that happened on the United Airlines flight and what do we learn from that, or, too, what may have been done differently? What would you do if it were you? What’s right? What’s the correct and fair compensation for getting booted from a flight? But, it’s not just about flying. It’s customer service, all around.

If you’re in position to perform customer service, how do you handle it and what do you do if that goes wrong? A lot of tackling of these topics this week.
