13: Love to Sneak in a Honk
This week, your celebratory but pensive team take a peek at New Years' songs and wonder about when the world will have a new year. Lachlan tries to carry the feeling of the season, which he does valiantly despite generalised resistance, though he is briefly confused about why Jesus is famous. Along the way, we talk about tricky animals, New Years Accelerationists, the Christmas legacy of Phil Spector, and the complicated atlas of viscous foods in the US. We also, completely organically, Address The Ham again. In this episode, recorded in and on our end-of-year limbo, we cover "In the New Year", by the Walkmen, "Happy New Year", by ABBA (which compels Lachlan to repeatedly bare his feelings about ABBA), and "Auld Lang Syne", by the Irish Rovers. It's maybe our worst recording ever, owing to Lachlan having a reaction to his house's heating and Jess being lost by sexist microphones.

12: Working On My Nocturnal Grandeur
This week, your surprisingly-vigorous-considering-how-corpulent-they-are team walk down the aisle to wedding songs, specifically songs from Jess and Kip's wedding last month. On the way toward spending time with "Celestial the Queen" by Blue Oyster Cult, "Raise Up" by Petey Pablo, and "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses, we address the challenges of putting animals on trial, playing Wagon Wheel at the wrong time, and washing cornholes at the right time. We also, after two years' podcasting, at the heady rate of about one episode every two months, struggle once again with recording technologies.

11: Frog Fat Fuck Five Stars
Dear Listener, We invite you to take a pause from life's pleasures so you can listen to this week's episode. Today, your lil trickster team does a parody episode, because we each have chosen a parody song (“Jesus Ranch” by Tenacious D, “Bloke” by Chris Franklin, and “Hey Hey We’re the Monkees” by the Monkees) and we also don’t really do the episode at all. Instead, we spend around 45 minutes on visual gags, get nervous about how the political right is taking over humour, and discuss who can get into heaven, and just how horny you're allowed to be there. Jess also lies about when she went to the flea market. Write us on email@example.com to recommend songs and genres, and follow us on Twitter to keep up-to-date with dads being dads on YouTube. We will find you, Who Else is Listening

10: We All Have a Little Dad Inside
In honour of returning of our returning for Season 2, your mesomorphic team swim against the current to bring you an episode focused on comeback songs: "Here You Come Again" by Dolly Parton; "Maria" by Blondie; and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" by Backstreet Boys. We also see the comeback of some classic Who Else is Listening themes, such as surprising dads, talking over the top of one another, and being only barely on theme. We also realise that contemporary society is more accepting of people who have big boobs and the Soviet Union lasted a little longer than most would think. Kip and Jess continue being rude to Lachlan but he fights back. Write us on firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Twitter to keep up-to-date with dads being dads on YouTube.

9: A Month of Monkey Mondays
In honour of Valentine's Day, this week your mooney-eyed team draw our bows and lance an arrow through three love songs: "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin, "At Last" by Etta James, and "Help Me Make it Through the Night" by Sammi Smith. While theorising the real nature of love, we also examine the appropriate conditions for shitting in public toilets, do a brief cultural tour of New Jersey, and continue amassing evidence that this podcast is actually about reality tv. We also debut a new segment, "Yuk My Yums", and revise it almost instantaneously. Finally, perhaps as a means of celebrating Valentine's Day, Lachlan records his end of the conversation with what seems to be a wad of cellophane in his mouth. Predictions: - Jim Grey, our dad of the week, will soon find love - Bruce Springsteen will salvage his working class credentials by quickly releasing an album called "Common Ground" - Beyond Burgers will steal our "We Likey Beyond" slogan and use it in a highly successful ad campaign Write us on email@example.com or follow us on Twitter to keep up-to-date with dads being dads on YouTube.

8: RIP Dead People
This episode is an episode of firsts. It’s our first biweekly episode. It’s our first advertisement-free episode (RIP Smithfield Hams [Rest in Peepee]). It’s our first rawdog. It features our first Twitter Tight Ten segment. For the first time, Lachlan assumes the role of Australian correspondent. It’s our first eighth episode. And it’s our first episode on hometown songs. [Line break] This week, we put some hometown classics into a pot, let them steep, then sip slowly and discuss Tetris marriages, dissect the perfect joke structure, and dabble in ASMR. By examining (to some extent) the songs ‘We Built this City’ by Starship; ‘Palo Alto’ and ‘Fitter, Happier’ by Radiohead; ‘Wagon Wheel’ by both Old Crow Medicine Show and Darius Tucker; ‘More Than a Woman’ by the Bee Gees; and ‘Candy Girl’ by Kiwi, we reflect (to a lesser extent) on our hometowns: San Francisco CA, Todd NC, and Sandgate QLD. Warning! Contains jaw harp.

7: I'm Having a Cool Feeling!
In this episode, our first double doctor, your well-cooked but still runny team take Eurovision into the crook of their arm to gives its hair a good-natured ruffling. Our official European correspondent Jon Rasmus Nyquist drops by to offer his local perspective, and together we insult Swedish people, compare meal sizes, and set our watches to DIARRHEA. Along the way, we swim in the deep end of Eurovision, discussing Alexander Rybak's "Fairytale", Dschinghis Khan's "Dschinghis Khan", Buranovskiye Babushki's "Party For Everybody", Herrey's' "Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley", Sylvia Night's "Congratulations", and Lordi's "Hard Rock Hallelujah" and maybe some more i can't remember. The presence of our official European correspondent compels us to introduce ourselves and the show in a more substantial way than normal, though we fight valiantly against it. This episode is not brought to you by Smithfield Hams, which, despite our vocal and unsolicited support, is not even fit for dogs. Instead, this episode is brought to you by Hillshire Hams, the Lamborghini of ham.

6: Don't Be Acting Like You Don't Want Quiver Dinner
In this week's instalment, your meekly righteous team gleefully continue our trajectory of making longer and longer episodes and doff our fedoras to the genre of *Internet Mash-ups*: Chuck Person's "EccoJams Volume 1"; Niel Cicierega's "Bustin'"; and Nate Ramsey's mashup of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" and Dvořák's "New World Symphony". Want to know what an internet mash-up is? Want to understand hauntology? You won't get those answers here. However, this fluffer-nutter-and-jam-packed episode introduces a series of new segments: You Gonna Eat Thaaaat?, Kip's Tips, and J-Stor. Along the way, we propose a few tasteful recipes, define vaporwave, experience time recursions, and, finally, FINALLY, give George Lucas' imperialist franchise "Space Fights" the rinsing it so richly deserves. This episode is brought to you by Smithfield Hams: the only ham too hammy for the midwest.

5: Daddy Knees All the Way Down
This week your dazzling and electric team close one eye and squint to examine drinking songs: "Too Drunk to Fuck", by Dead Kennedys, "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink", by Merle Haggard, and "You're the Voice", by John Farnham. Throughout our discussion, we discuss how artists control the position of their art in history, take a truly international approach to how well penises work, hunt the fabled Walmart Leprachaun, and finally get to the bottom of why Bob Seger is killing everyone's dads. Jess and Kip also bravely decided that they would record their side of the chat from inside a fishbowl. Will their risky decision pay off in terms of sound quality? You decide!

4: We’re More a Family than a Podcast
We celebrate Labour Day on the date chosen by corporations with an episode about work and labour. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we find out that most of the team has been very legitimately fired during our working careers. But, demonstrating the worker's backbone, your tastefully minimalist friends pull it back together to record a US Labour Day special by digging through major songs about work and labour: "Workin' 9 to 5", by Dolly Parton; "Career Opportunities", by the Clash; and "They'll Never Keep Us Down", by Hazel Dinkins. And that’s what makes it a Smithfield.

3: It's Good to End on a Bad Note
Welcome back to the Bone Zone, Boners! Now that summer is winding down, summer is just beginning, which means that it ended months ago, because you have just noticed it was happening. With this in mind, your gelatinous and quivering friends stand toe-to-toe with some quintessientially summer songs: "Summer Girls", by LFO; "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay", by Otis Redding; and "Steal My Sunshine", by Len, to talk about the meaning of summer and when the 1990s ACTUALLY ended. In between, the team builds the Two Beer Theory™ of human history, use bad Cockney accents for a little too long, and reminisce about the Mongol Empire. Follow us on Twitter, and write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request songs, recommend genres, or get a discount code for Kip and Jess' Mongol Empire OnlyFans. Brought you by Smithfield Hams: you're only a class traitor if it's a Smithfield.

2: Right in the Dingus
In this week's episode, your lithe friends use their combined 50 years experience of being online to cast a refined gaze over posts about Coronavirus, quarantine, and the apocalypse. To whet your appetite, we carefully explore a world systems theory of urination and examine whether or not turkey salad is possible, and we wrap the show up with a business opportunity. In between, we "pony up" on the songs "The End of the World" by Skeeter Davis, "It's the End of the World" by R.E.M., "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult, and "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall" by Bob Dylan, and discuss how the end times is manifesting online. Once again, your friends steadfastly refuse to explain the show or its concept, but we hope that it's becoming clearer.

1: The Ultimate Nostalgic Act
This week, your principled and athletic friends change their lazer setting from stun to kill and train their sights on three songs: Night Moves by Bob Seger, Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden, and Signs by The Five Man Electrical Band. After an expansive and eye-opening discussion of Ohio's climate, the team tackle nostalgia handjobs and whether or not LSD existed in the 90s. We also powerfully commit ourselves to not introducing the show or its concept in any substantial way.
