About the Podcast

The Peg Doesn’t Fit - The world of education continues to try to operate in the confines of an antiquated system. Despite its flaws, solutions continue to be offered that adds to an increasingly convoluted system that continues to resist change. Join us as we talk about our frustrations and attempt to provide solutions.

What Are We Listening To?

Chris shared: The Dumb Dad Podcast - It's pronounced Dad, the "dumb" is silent. Comedians Kevin Laferriere and Evan Kyle Berger are just a couple of dads trying to have a little fun along the way. We believe the only way to erase the stigma that Dumb Dads get painted with is to parent harder, not dumber.
