If you follow this blog you probably know that I also write for Chris Brogan's Dad-O-Matic, and on behalf of Dad-O-Matic I participated in the Sony DigiDad Project. It was a lot of fun writing posts that were inspired by the Sony gear I was able to borrow and play with. My kids and I particularly enjoyed our re-creating The Picture of Dorian Gray and creating a spoof infomercial for the Sony Vaio P mini laptop/ping-pong paddle.
While all the Sony Gear has now been returned, the connections made between the participating dads is going to live on in a new project. The “Sony Dads” represent a great cross section of dad and personal blogs and we have decided to continue the conversation in a (hopefully weekly) podcast called the Cast of Dads. We will cross-post our episodes at our respective blogs and of course you can subscribe to the podcast at www.castofdads.com (and soon in iTunes.)
At launch there are five dads in our cast, and between us we have thirteen kids, so I suspect we will always have great stories to share. In our “premiere episode” we talk about:
- Artificial vs. Real Christmas Trees
- Holiday decorating
- Mixed religious household traditions
- Shopping for Holiday presents
- What our kids are asking for this year
- The coolness of Lego
And of course we introduce ourselves. You can listen to Episode 1 of Cast of Dads here. We’d love to hear what you think, and hope you will follow us as the show evolves.
Cast of Dads is a group of podcasting and blogging dads who gather to gab about fatherhood. The cast of dads includes C.C. Chapman, Jeffrey Sass, Max Kalehoff, Michael Sheehan, and 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.Related articles by Zemanta
