It’s Not You, It’s Us - Raising Nashville Episode 25

August 25, 2019

On this weeks episode the guys look back at their first 24 episode, give some updates to the subjects covered, and pull back the curtain to reveal a little of the behind the scenes of the podcast.   Then we end with a couple of clips that were originally cut for time/pacing but made us laugh so, hey, why not just tack them on at the end?  We'll be taking the month of September off to research some new episodes for the month of October and on so just consider this our "mid season break".  Please rate us and leave a review where ever you listen to help boost us up in the searches (Is that how the internet pipes work?).   See you on the other side.

This week, we wrap up our fatherhood "Trilogy" by covering the first 9 months of rearing a child. The dudes learn some interesting things on this episode, such as: Zanies still enforces a 2 drink minimum even if you're pregnant, and how no one but Bucky understands his Star Wars Trilogy comparison to our Fatherhood Trilogy.  So, swaddle the kids, give 'em a bottle, and settle down to this weeks Raising Nashville Podcast.

This week, the guys get whiskey bent with Jack Daniels.  Discover the rich history of Tennessee's most famous distillery and the man behind this iconic brand. Other highlights include the finer points of letting your 8yr old drink alcohol, the side effects that whiskey must have played on Jack Daniel's love life, and our suspicions on what No. 7 really means. Bonus! The guys do a special blind taste test of some Jack Daniel's products, while Oldboy tests (fails) a lemonade sampling. Pull up a stool, pour a shot, and enjoy a nice glass of Raising Nashville.

This week we decided to take a break from parenting topics and treat ourselves to a night/day out to the movies to see  Quentin Tarantino's 9th Film, also known as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. And since this is a movie review episode we though it was only fitting to dust off the theme song and segments from our old podcast "Redbox Movie Reviews".  We'll be discussing the movie with some minor spoilers.  We'll debate on whether or not Brad Pitt is a good actor or just a good looking dude, we'll rate this movie with our own quirky (stupid) rating system, and try to figure out if that was actually Michael Madsen or just a middle aged lady with a cowboy hat.  Don't jam up the Redbox, read it quick, we ain't got time to wait.

Sure, you’ve heard of Pokemon and you could probably pick Pikachu out of a line-up. But do you really know what Pokemon is all about? Did you know it’s shorthand for “Pocket Monster”? Or that the main objective is to capture, train, and trade wild and free creatures? In this week’s episode, the guy’s explore the Jamaican Japanese phenomenon that has swept the world. From it’s GameBoy beginnings (we know, we thought it was a card game at first, too) to the billion dollar revenue maker that is Pokemon Go!, and all of the entertainment media in between. Join the guys as they attempt to catch ‘em all in this week’s Raising Nashville!

We’re taking a field trip, folks! Bucky, Juicebox, and Oldboy, packed up their families for a visit to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere! Join us as we discuss Bucky’s first ever zoo experience, his disappointment in the animals, and his discovery of what a Gibbon is. We also compare our expectations with those of random strangers when we read aloud some negative reviews from Trip Advisor. BONUS: the families dined at Plaza Mariachi and have some praise to share. We have great expectations for this episode, but as the saying goes, It’s hard to soar with the eagles when you’re running around with the turkeys.

This week's episode came via suggestion from Joey Richard's (or Roey Jichards, if you prefer), a member of our listernship. Joey wanted the guys to discuss the amount of Screen Time children are exposed to and the adverse effects it has on their young minds. So the guys obliged. Some highlights include: the amount of time that is considered OK for a child to watch screens at certain ages, how screens are likely killing imagination, the average height of Star Wars characters, and waiting for the right moment to record that one PM Dawn song. So quit looking  at your phone and listen to this!
