32: Stay Off-Property

Just remember, no podcast starts weirder than this one. That’s our promise to you, the listener.

But on this episode we talk about theme park vacations. Which are crazy expensive. Let’s just be clear about that.

For California Disneyland, Jon recommends the Hyatt Regency. When visiting Universal Florida, stay at the Loews Protofino Bay Hotel because the Expresspass is included in the price.

When going to Disneyworld, Moltz recommends the Magicpass wristband for convenience. Lex uses the AllEars.net web site for Disney tips.

If you’re in marketing or advertising, you might even be able to deduct your trip. Talk to you accountant.

31: Accidental Car Podcast

This week we continue talking about going back to school.

And, because “car” is in the name of this podcast, we finally get around to talking about cars. Turns out Jalopnik is a car site, according to Jon.

While waiting for his school to start, Lex’s son asked 10 times a day if he could play Just Dance.

Not related to getting to school, Jon talks about his recent trip to Universal Orlando and gives some important tips. We’ll be talking more about this next week.

If you haven’t gotten your kids a backpack for school yet, Lex has another suggestion: a briefcase.

Back to not on the subject, here’s a horrible t-shirt that is not appropriately gender-neutral and you should not buy no matter how much you hate the New York Giants. It’s out of stock anyway. And then we get back to cars and Jon tries to wave Lex off the Nissan Leaf.

It’s back to school time! Congratulations, parents, you made it!



Aaaaaand, sorry, kids. So sorry. (Not really.)



For the etymology of the name Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse you can check the Wikipedia page. That has not much to do with going back to school.



Like you’re surprised about that.



But we do talk about how much we’re looking forward to helping our kids with homework (not at all). And then we get really judgmental about home schooling. Even though we’re all thinking about it at least a little.

29: My Wife Would Not Say She’s Been Lucky

Let’s talk about in-laws. And what is said in this episode must never leave this episode. By listening to this episode you are agreeing to the terms of this EULA.

First some important business: IBM does still sell RISC servers. So, there you go. Now you know why you tune into a parenting podcast.

Note that advice columnist Dear Prudence (first name “Dear”, second name “Prudence”) consistently says that couples should lean on taking their spouse’s side rather than the side of their own family in any disagreement.

You’ll be glad to know that we ultimately come out in favor of ladies wearing yoga pants.
