Episodes

You Are Coming to My Party

This week Bryn tuns five and he’s letting everyone know about it, Beth learns to be selfish, Peter loves rules and Maeven lives life to the fullest in her new pink tracksuit.

Tina the Cheese Woman

Maeven debuts her newest character, Peter and Beth discuss the problematic messaging of the Berenstain Bears, and the new neighbors interrupt the podcast recording.

An Abrupt Exit

In preparation for Beth leaving town for a wedding, Peter and Beth record a night early, much later than usual and after an incredibly bumpy Uber ride.  Does Peter make it through the recording? It’s debatable. Also, Bryn and Maeven chime in… mostly about farts.

Almost Five

This week Beth and Peter prepare for Bryn’s 5th birthday by rehashing the brown cow cake argument, admitting that they have no plan and then asking the listeners to plan the party for them.  Then they prove once again why the podcast deserves reviews titled “A very sexy podcast for parents.”

The Farting Sun

A new week brings new neighbors, a new bed, and a new appreciation for a lazy day.  Beth shares an article about the history of mothers’ lack of alone time, Peter catches up on some old lister mail and Bryn writes a book about the Sun… farting.

Spooooky Hollow

After a whole bunch of driving, roadside tantrums, algae blooms, the full Les Miz soundtrack and a little bit of Dramamine, the family vacation season officially draws to a close. 

Cousins and Beta Blockers

After a remarkably stress-free family vacation, Peter’s new medication makes him so crazy that Beth and Peter have to scrap an entire episode, then fight all night, and re-record a day late. It sounds terrible and it was, but things end up better in the end. 

Family(less) Vacation(s)

For four days, Peter spends the weekend in the Berkshires, the kids with Nana and Granddad and Beth home alone. The result? Everyone has the time of their lives. Peter and Beth then finally spill the beans on that big reveal that they’ve been teasing for weeks.

Pool Party

Bryn graduates pre-k. Peter gets his father’s day gift of a broadway show. And everyone needs to cut back on the ice cream.

Dad Brains

For Father’s day Peter gets to choose how the family spends the day and he chooses: nothing. It’s everything he hoped it would be.  Beth and Peter talk about the neuroscience of dad brains and Bryn refuses to put on his shoes... or do anything that you need him to.
