Episode 103: Chris Ballew Doles Out the Applesauce

dad2summitDad 2.0-Cast

Chris Ballew fronted the Presidents half his life ago and just wrapped 19 albums and 1,247 live shows as Caspar Babypants, and at 56 he’s publishing under his own name and feeling more creative than ever. He credits his parents for encouraging his empathy and silliness, and he wanted to have kids because “I thought I could make two good ones.”

We talk about how to cultivate creativity, analyzing his divorce and staying friends with his ex, and why his first instinct when the Presidents hit it big was to blow the whole thing up.

This episode is supported by American Underdog, arriving in theaters on December 25.
