Episode 36: The Best of The UnDad Podcast

Sorta. I lost some episodes. I collected as most as I could. This is a month in the making. We are all sick. I’ve notified the authorities. Much love to all and more EPs coming regularly.

Episode 32: The Questioneer

In this episode, Trent answers the many, many questions that his rabid fanbase* sent in to him. Some of them are funny, some sincere, and some are about corn nuts. *Just random folks (and his family) who were polite enough to answer his requests for questions.

The UnDad Podcast EP 20: I have a ghost in my head and I call it Garglemax

I got an implant that connects to a wizard class synthetic user interface. It’s like ‘Alexa’ that only I can hear. It’s for science. Everything is fine.

The UnDad Podcast EP14: I’m still doing comedy

Ken Valgardson answers the phone for a ‘content over audio quality’ interview. We chat comedy, teaching, parenting, and child bowels. It truly is a magical time to be alive.

Also,… Read More ›

Fatherview: Ryan Jespersen

I first met Ryan…actually, I  can’t remember. I remember when I met Kari (she interviewed me for a play I wrote called Book On Tape), but Ryan…it was probably in a social setting. There was probably some liquid bread. We probably had a very in depth conversation about something that we immediately forgot afterwards. Anyway…. Read More ›

Itchy trigger Fringer

There has been quite an extended bit of radio silence here at the Undad for 2.5 reasons. I’m in 2.5 shows in the Edmonton Fringe Theatre Festival. Why would I do that you ask? Simple answer: sheer staggering stupidity. Real answer: I like to keep busy, and before E and I knew Bean number 2 was… Read More ›

Fatherview: Jason Strudwick

If you look close at Jason Strudwick you can see a collection of scars. Punches, stitches, a few hockey stick blades…whatever causes a scar, they are stories told on his face. He was a stalwart NHL defenceman for several teams. To some, he’s the burly gent that can deliver a bitchin’ press lift on Battle of the… Read More ›
