September 21, 2020
"What happens at grandma's stays at grandma's"....or does it? This week the dads dissect the roles of grandparents in our children's lives. From Flowers in the Attic, to a day all to themselves, the idea of grandparents has evolved in recent years. They're younger, hipper and armed with better candy and ready to fight for the affection of your children. What happens when you get all the love with little responsibility? Find out this week on Raising Nashville Podcast. Can I have another ice cream sandwich? Of course you can, just don't tell your mom and dad.

From The Monkees to Motley Crue - Raising Nashville Podcast - Episode 68

September 7, 2020

Over the next two weeks we will be covering a time in Nashville when you took a short drive down I-24 to see the biggest bands in the world play under the stars with 18,000 screaming fans.  While its name changed a few times over the 20 year run, to Nashvillians it will always be known as Starwood Amphitheatre.  In the first part of this two-part series we are going to explore when Starwood was built, some of the first bands that played there, stories from past performances, and interview a production employee who worked at the amphitheater for 10 years.  From Wu-Tang's kids to Ozzy's bowel movements and burning pizza boxes on the lawn, the tales that can be told from inside those gates are endless and too much to fit in one episode.  Also this week we cover the Starwood Amphitheater Memories Facebook page, a safe haven for people old and young to compile pictures, videos, memories, and everything in between.  From The Monkees to Motley Crue: a look back at Starwood Amphitheatre,  is OUT NOW!

Sure, Nashville is known for it's country music scene, bachelorette parties, Honky-Tonks, and low property taxes (ha!).  But this great city is also becoming a hot spot for new and creative restaurants.  On this weeks episode we're debuting the first episode in our "What's for Lunch" series, where we pick a locally owned restaurant and talk to the owner about how they started and what sets them apart.  This week we were lucky enough for owner of Coneheads, Marcus Buggs, to take some time out of his busy schedule to tell us about his unique take on Chicken and Waffles.  If you're not hungry now, you will be after this episode.  So check out Coneheads in person at 1315 Dickerson Pike or order online at

On this weeks episode of Raising Nashville podcast we examine the age old pastime of lying. Before we can understand why our children lie we must examine why we do; and we ALL do. We also provide tips on what to do as a parent when you catch your children lying. You also might catch a story of an infamous freshman year homecoming party that Bucky attended (hint: there's a big lie involved). So channel your inner George Washington and tune in to this weeks episode for all this and so.much more. Jim Carey would be proud.

What Phase Is It!?! - Raising Nashville Podcast - Episode 64

What phase is it?!?!? With the ever evolving state of Nashville we found it our civic duty to bring our listenership a few updates on Music City, USA.  Did MNPS rise to the occasion during our all new virtual learning environment or were kids caught using cuss words in the chat?  What happened to the New Orleans style trend of taking drinks to-go?  Was the 34% property tax increase warranted?  Did a Tennessee politician really spend less than 25 thousand dollars and still come away with the win?  No...we're not talking about you Manny Sethi!  Tune in to this week's episode to hear our take on Nashville's current state of revelations.

Like schools during a pandemic We Are Back! The dads took the summer off to learn how to adjust to home life, self reflect, and to educate ourselves on everything going on in life right now. But, all summer breaks must come to an end so we dusted off the mics and created all new episodes for our listenership. Up first is something that's on all parents minds: how to navigate remote learning. Should we send kids back to school in person? What are the pros and cons of virtual learning? Is this journey we are about to embark on considered home school? I guess we're all about to find out. So, throw in some ear buds, act like your paying attention to your kids and let us whisk a part of your day away with our ALL NEW EPISODE: Back to School.

Taking A Break - Raising Nashville Podcast - Episode 62

June 15, 2020

2020 has been an interesting year.  The Tennessee Titans ALMOST make the Super Bowl (it was a BIG deal around town folks) then we all go into lockdown for months, now we're witnessing as a large chunk of the country becomes aware that no, racism never truly went away.   Throughout all of this we've been trying to push on and put out episodes that we think our listenership would like.  But now it's time to take to take a little step back to reflect on everything that's happened so far this year and study up on some future topics.  We're taking a little break, but we'll be back later this summer with new episodes on Nashville, parenting, or just something random that we think is relevant.  Thanks for listening and we'll talk at you again soon.

COW-A-BUNGA dudes! This week the guys from Raising Nashville throw it over to Cool Whip and Sugar Cane to review the 1991 smash hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze! This movie has everything: Jim Henson animatronics, the kid from Sidekicks, a fresh new April O'Neil, the idea that everyone in New York only eats Pizza, gigantic dandelions, Rampage characters, an actor from Titanic and Vanilla freaking Ice!! Go Ninja Go Ninja Go! 

Tune in this week to check out a fresh new perspective on an excruciating-to-watch classic. Did Juicebox make it through the viewing? Do the Turtles even use their weapons in this film? Is there something going on in Splinters Penthouse? Does Bucky really think Kevin Nash is Shredder through the whole thing? Was this movie even worth $2.99 on Amazon? On this weeks episode we answer these questions AND break down the inception of fiction during the most over-the-top Vanilla Ice concert of all time. 
Back by bodacious demand, Cool Whip and Sugar Cane (and Juicebox) try to make sense of this sequel the best way they know how. Totally!
