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.

Show 108: My Guilty Pleasure

Would you believe that Beer Dad Paul likes Foreigner and Journey? How about Beer Dad Jon, who likes to drink cheap beer in ice cold mugs shaped like beer barrels? And Beer Dad Tim likes to lay out in the sun wearing nothing but leopard print bikini briefs, if that. 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. Tell us about it.

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.

Show 104: Holiday Road

So, Beer Dad Paul is still on vacation (at time of this recording) and Stacy Verner sits in, once again with Beer Dads Jon and Tim. Stacy is an awesome guest, as usual and we’re always glad to have her. Since Paul is on vacation, we decided to talk about our vacations. Not necessarily those with our kids but perhaps some of the trips we took when we were kids ourselves. The good ones, the bad ones, the many, the few… you get the picture.

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 103: Awkward S**t

Stacy with Beer Dad Tim and a growler from the awesome folks at The Beer Growler Winston-Salem

Beer Dad Paul is on vacation (at the time of the recording) and we have our most frequent guest, Stacy Verner, in the studio to talk about all kinds of awkwardness including what the title implies. It’s an awkward kind of show, really. Not Stacy, she’s always awesome. Just the show and its contents. So, know that it’s a bit graphic at times. Not, dirty, that’s silly, but the subject matter. Sometimes it’s crap, really.

Not only did Stacy come to help us with the hosting, she came bearing gifts! She brought with her a libations treat from the fine folks over at The Beer Growler WS located at 3424 Robinhood Road in WSNC and on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. They sell Hoots over there so make sure you try one of those, too! We thank The Beer Growler and Stacy for that!

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 102: Home Near Disasters

A broken shower, a crack in the foundation, a leaky roof, a fire in the garage, a tree in the yard. All examples of home disasters that can leave you in a bind and leave you broke. Obviously things happen and while many things can be done as preventative maintenance, some tings just hit you out of the blue. Do you fix it yourself or do you hire someone? It’s how we handle it and prepare for it that is the important part (at least after the incident).

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.

TLD (and now The Beer Dads) Superfan Damien Paris is back for another show and this time we find out all about Damien. What it’s like being a (new) dad, what he and his wife do for a living and just all about Damien. He’s a great guy to have on the show and a great guy to call “friend.”

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 100: Real Men Do What?

Here we are! Show #100! Seems like just yesterday we were doing #1 or even #10. It’s been a long road we’ve traveled together and we’re looking forward to several hundred more.

For our 100th show, we have a very special guest. He started out as just a “superfan” for The Less Desirables. In fact, TLD calls him “Superfan Damien.” He’s Mr. Damien Paris and he’s also a big fan of our show (at least he acts like it). He sits in while we talk about our latest topic. A few weeks back a new billboard went up on Business 40 in Kernersville and it has set some folks off. The billboard reads: “Real Men Provide. Real Women Appreciate It.” Rumors abound about who it was that put it up, what their intention was. Some say we’re heading back to the 50s with that or there’s new thoughts that it was a group of fathers that pay child support but their exes or the mothers of the children don’t allow the men to see their kids. We haven’t heard for sure what the deal is, but upon that first day we heard about it, we had to discuss it. It now reads another jab at people who are protesting or complaining about it. We don’t harp on that sign per se, but we discuss the concept of what we perceived it to be in our everyday lives. Damien chimes in a good bit, too. We like that.

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.

The Beer Dads’ beer of the week is Golden Ale by Triangle Brewing (where TLD first met Damien).
