92 Episodes
Mike discusses the unfortunate news in the Laidman Family this week, then the Dad's talk about glasses and getting laser eye surgery. Of course we also have the latest and great child stories and then finish up the day with some Last of Us Part 2 discussion.
The Dads are back, fresh from celebrating themselves during Fathers Day. They dive into their individual days then talk about the surprising news of Mixer shutting down operations coming in July. Then Kris takes over the podcast and talks about the latest news from Apples annual WWDC!
Mike explains what taking a vacation during Quarantine is like, Kid stories are harder to come by nowadays, and then lets face it the Dads talk about the PS5 for the majority of the episode!
We cram in a stunning amount of family and kid news this week; so much that we're not going to list it all! Then the Dads talk about their recent video game purchases: C&C Remastered and Minecraft Dungeons.
We wanted to take a moment to address the Black Lives Matter Protests currently taking place in the United States. We questioned if we should even bring up this topic on our show because as two white men who tell jokes about kids and video games, it’s definitely not our place to talk about how this issue is affecting the Black community. That said, we cannot just stay silent. Staying silent only helps those who fear change and want that status quo to remain. Racism has no place in our world, and as fathers we need to help shape the world we want for our children. If you’d like to help, go to That’s carrd with two Rs. You can begin to educate yourself there, seek out protests to join if you are able to do so and donate to any number of important causes. If you want to help locally in Canada, or to our neighbours in the United states there’s options for both. Kris goes back to the office this week, Jackbox games night retrospective, Dante Updates, Why did we have kids again?, and the latest SpaceX news!
The final COVID Chronicles mini-series show is upon us! Listen in amazement as the dads talk about their children, how Mike breaks Kris' heart by quitting Doom, and then they talk about the latest Microsoft Surface Lineup!
This is basically a clip-show-esque episode with 15,000 different topics over 45 minutes! Enjoy!

Play structures, headbutts, spit touching, WWE is essential, WWE fires everyone, the Dad's agree to try Stadia's free trial FOR YOU.
The Dads are so bored during the Quarantine that the podcast just keeps getting longer! Listen to us be fun and friendly friends.
We didn't have enough room in the title for the dozens of topics that we covered, each for 2 minutes a piece! It'll help pass the quarantine!
