Media is currently buzzing mad about stay-at-home dads. A recent study showed that in 40% of U.S. households, women are the primary and/or sole financial provider. As more fathers choose to stay home to raise kids while their wives pursue a career, advertisers have been quick to shift their attention on these dads as well. Frequently, fathers can be seen folding laundry in detergent commercials or handling diaper duty in ad spots for baby products. The life of a stay at home dad is calling the attention of the nation - Chase Roper and his Stay at Home Dad Cast answers this call.
This is a podcast that aims to entertain and inform listeners as well as give an honest, transparent portrayal of the life of a stay at home dad. A large part of this show's charm is the spontaneous interruptions of the Chase's children. A true stay at home parent cannot so much as use the bathroom without hearing about a recent conflict with a sibling, let alone host any sort of show undisturbed. To produce a podcast without that honest, transparent interaction would be disingenuous.
If you're a fan of canned laughs and over-produced morning radio personalities, then there are other dad centered podcasts for you. Instead, Chase thrives for honest, sometimes candid, and often hilarious moments that portray real life rather than a staged alternate reality.
A typical episode would include one or more of the following:
- Interviews with bestselling authors, actors, comedians, and other guests of interest
- Reviews of books, kids programming, toys, or other family centered things.
- Answering questions from listeners about parenting or marriage issues.
- Interraction with my kids (planned or otherwise!)
