Lets Talk About Pods, Baby…Lets Talk About Season 2

Yeah, you read it correctly. “Season 2” is coming and you may be thinking to yourself “hey Ben, I didn’t think your show worked that way” and initially, you’d be correct.

This week though comes a big change to my family and Lazy Banana Podcasts. I’m happy to say that we’ll be relocating to an amazing place in which it will be possible to not only have better quality shows, but also more regular content. With that in mind, as well as the stints I’ve had to do in the first “season” where I wasn’t able to do shows at all, I’ve decided that with all the differences that there will be between the shows prior and the shows coming up, it makes sense to seperate them into “seasons”. 

And so, for your enjoyment, starting THIS VERY MONTH…all new episodes of The Dad On The Mic Show.

Twice a week.

Regular guests from different areas of expertise. 

Same B.K. 

I’m incredibly grateful for all of you who have stuck with me, and everyone who’s coming in at this exciting time of growth!

Don’t forget to subscribe to the show via iTunes, and go follow on Twitter and Facebook!

Generation to Generation: #PlaySkoolHeroes

It seems like forever ago that I played with my first Super Hero action figure. But when I think back on it now, it took awhile for me to discover them. When I did, it opened my mind to whole new worlds that my imagination could run through. The universe I had created for all my toys had vastly expanded beyond just building blocks and plush toys. Now I had realistic faces to the characters in my mind. Now I had the chance to create beyond what was previously possible. It has translated then, all these year later, into how I can play with my Daughter.  Continue reading Generation to Generation: #PlaySkoolHeroes

Return of Mr. Pillowman

A long….long…time ago, I was a little kid. In my small brain was an infinite universe of imagination and I used it often. Those days seem like a blur now, except for a few things. People for certain have not faded, although I’ve just always had a good memory for faces and names (until recently). Every so often life has a funy way of re-introducing people from your past back into your feild of vision or…more directly.  Continue reading Return of Mr. Pillowman

What #TakeBackTheTable Means To Me

A long while back, at the begining of this blogs life, I wrote about the importance of having Family time around the dinner table. When done on a regular basis, and without the interruption of devices, it can be a wonderful way to strengthen the communication and relationships within your family. Lately I’ve been seeing a pretty wide campaign on social media called #TakeBackTheTable, dedicated to getting familys back (or even just now into) the habit of doing exactly what I had previously written about.  Continue reading What #TakeBackTheTable Means To Me

The Netflix Diaries: Once Upon A Time

It’s like somebody at Disney’s creative department stayed up for 48 hours on Redbull and wrote 6-7 seasons worth of episodes of some crazy mashup of ALL the Disney characters. In the beginning it was really cool, interesting and well thought out. But now we’re into “Day 2” of his binge and its still interesting, still well thought out, but REALLY CRAZY.  Continue reading The Netflix Diaries: Once Upon A Time
