This week we take a short break from the Covid-19 pandemic to preview some of our favorite local Nashville podcasts.  Let's be honest, we can only listen to ourselves so much and we're sure you can too.  On this weeks episode we tie in three local podcasts that are each part of our own mission, which is dads raising children in Nashville while drinking and talking about pop-culture. Up first we find out Zeke Baker's (Dads Drinking Bourbon) favorite well bourbon then we transition into Chris Green's (99% Local Podcast) one percent. Finally Kelly Hoyle Bolick (San Dimas Today) stops by the studio to talk about everything Bill & Ted related including the upcoming film Bill & Ted Face the Music.  So whether you are a dad, bourbon drinker, not from here, or are a fan of Keanu Reeves we have something for everyone!  The interviews start off professional then turn into strange obsessions, off-beat questions and a whole lot of fun.  We also discover Oldboy has an obscure man crush.  All this and more on this weeks Raising Nashville podcast.

A few weeks back the dads got together to record something special for their 50th episode.  They were then kicked out of the studio by their better halves, who proceeded to take over the Raising Nashville Podcast.  This week they're telling our Listenership what they do when the dads are sequestered in Juicebox's spare room, and giving you the scoop on some of their favorite spots to take your kids, and Get Crunk Like a Mutha.  Enjoy, and continue to practice social distancing y'all.

This wasn't the episode we planned on putting out.  But a lot of things changed last Wednesday, and the Coronavirus, AKA COVID-19, became front and center in everyone's mind (although it probably already should have been).  We're diving into the timeline of the spread of this virus. From when the first case was reported on December 31, up to where we are today, (well Sunday). We talk about the cascade of cancellations and closures and the effects they have on working parents.  Then, when things are at their heaviest, Bucky hits us with a Paul Walker conspiracy that leaves us all speechless.

The flashing lights and sounds, the smell of cigarettes and pizza(?), picking out an eraser to spend your 10,000 ski ball tickets on. If you're around our age you probably remember the overwhelming sensation of walking through an arcade as a kid.  Sometimes you were lucky enough to have some quarters burning a hole in your pocket, sometimes you just had to look at the game and just daydream about how much fun it probably is to play.   Well, thanks to modern cash grab based around everything nostalgic about our childhoods, Arcades are BACK!  Well kinda.  Now instead of pumping quarters into the game you're pumping expensive beers and cocktails into your system while trying to conquer that 4 player Simpsons game you never had enough money to play back in the day. Yes, this week the guys are discussing the resurgence of arcade, or the arcade bar more specifically.  We talk about some of the offerings Nashville currently has and some that may be opening in the future.  So leave your quarters on the nightstand and join us on this weeks episode of the Raising Nashville Podcast.

Do you want to put on your shirt? NO!  Do you want to sit down and have some breakfast? NO!  Do you want this present? NO!  Yes, on this weeks episode of the Raising Nashville Podcast we're talking about everyone's favorite period of child development, the "Terrible Two's".  And even though Oldboy claims it didn't happen with his kid (we still don't believe him) it is a real thing for most parents.  This week we're diving into some of the causes behind your kids "Terrible" actions and discuss some options you have when your kid is having that full on melt down (one of the suggestions may or may not be drugs and alcohol, for yourself of course, not the kid).  So say yes to this weeks episode of the Raising Nashville Podcast, or maybe someone needs to think about it in Time Out

On this weeks episode we're talking about the pleasure and pain of family vacations, or family trips as Old Boy refers to them.  We breakdown some stats on how much families spend on vacation per year, it's probably more than you think, and how many days on average the family vacation lasts.  Then we reminisce about our favorite childhood vacations and what we look forward to taking with our kids.  Also, we refer to Disney World as Disney Land about 50 times in the episode, so just get past that.

Quick, what was your favorite toy growing up?  Chances are one or two specific toys popped into your head right then.  If you have kids, what do you think their answer will be when they're your age?  On this weeks episode we're unboxing (not literally) the toys that our kids are playing with and comparing them to the toys we grew up with.  Tune in as Old Boy discusses the disturbing fact that the Peppa Pig themed kitchen set has a sound effect that is obviously bacon frying, Bucky complains about how none of his kids toys are fun enough for him to play with,  then old man Juicebox explains the difference between a Remote Control Car and a Radio Control Car.  So cuddle up with My Buddy, snuggle up with that Glow Worm, and pop another clip in that Nerf gun, it's time for another episode of the Raising Nashville Podcast.
