Bert Kreischer Has a New Netflix Special and It's Awesome!
Because of the Coronavirus, we weren't able to record this week, so we're sharing a throwback episode of Father Time with Bert Kreischer. He's one of the biggest comics on earth, yes, the guy with the Russian Mob story. But his back story is insane. He talks about his early days and his beginnings in comedy. It's phenomenal. My apologies for it being a little "blue". I'm rating it explicit but Father Time was way raunchier. I'm not bleeping it. Give it a listen and definitely check out his new special on Netflix. Hey Big Boy!

Sequels Nobody Asked For: Cocktail II - Make Mine a Double!!
Here at The DadLands, we have a bone to pick with these romantic movies that end with two people who have magically fallen in love by the end. We're supposed to believe that they go on to have a wonderful life together when in reality we know that's when it gets really hard. Take the movie Cocktail. We did. My panel of esteemed funnymen (Michael Bunin, Patrick Keane, and Scott Feldman) break down just how ridiculous it is to think that a bar owner in Manhattan (Tom Cruise) and an artist (Elisabeth Shue) have twins in New York and survive marriage. We give a more honest take on how this story ends. Cocaine Addiction, Affairs, Resentment... it ends horribly. And hilariously funny. Enjoy our next take on parenthood with this innovative concept show.
