Episode 44: The Attack of Not-So-Nice Guy Guy Pt. 2

This week's episode of Potato Salad Marmalade finds Dad stuck in space after being jettisoned through the portal by Not-So-Nice Guy Guy a week ago. How awful is that? Fortunately for the ol' man, he's made a new friend up there that he can't wait for you to meet, but he still needs to find a way back to Earth before it's too late. There's NO oxygen up there to breathe and he's going bonkers from the boredom.  Meanwhile, Carter is hard at work trying to come up with a solution to save his dad. He's in the science shed trying to make things happen - there's no way he's going to let this stand. As the situation becomes more urgent, S.Hawn and Jeffrey the Astronaut take over the show to keep viewers updated on the space rescue efforts - or maybe just talk about strawberry ice cream. We can't tell with these guys. We think they just like to host, honestly.  In the midst of all this chaos, Not-So-Nice Guy Guy continues his relentless assault on the team and THE WORLD. Can Carter must find a way to save the day and bring his dad back home? Will the show ever get back to normal? Tune in to this week's episode of Potato Salad Marmalade to find out!

Episode 43: The Attack of Not-So-Nice Guy Guy Pt. 1

Things take a turn for the worse when Carter is unexpectedly fired from the show. Left feeling demoralized and defeated, Carter turns to a familiar ally in his quest to regain his mojo – Christopher Pickles. As Carter seeks out Pickles' guidance and support, Dad finds himself stuck cutting commercials, all the while pleading with the Omnopcorp board for his son's gig back. With tensions running high and the fate of the show hanging in the balance, it's up to Carter and Pickles to come up with a plan to get him back on the air. But when the nefarious "Not-So-Nice Guy Guy" continues his attack on the show, the stakes are raised to a whole new level. With their backs against the wall, Carter and Pickles must band together to fight off this dangerous threat and protect their beloved podcast. Will they be able to overcome the odds and emerge victorious, or will the attack of "Not-So-Nice Guy Guy" be the end of "Potato Salad Marmalade" as we know it?

Episode 42: S. Hawn and Jeffrey's Hijinks Take Over: A Solo Adventure

In this week's episode of Potato Salad Marmalade, Shawn is flying solo as his BFF and co-host Carter is off doing his taxes. Evidently 9-year-olds file early? But don't worry, two of the show's most beloved characters, S. Hawn and Jeffrey the Astronaut, step in to help him out.  As always, the trio gets up to their usual antics, but things take a turn for the worse when Omnopcorp, the company known for its cringe-worthy commercials, threatens to ruin the show with its latest ad. Will Shawn, S. Hawn, and Jeffrey be able to keep the show on track despite Omnopcorp's interference? Expect plenty of zany humor, unexpected twists, and laugh-out-loud moments in this week's episode. Whether you're a longtime fan of Potato Salad Marmalade or a first-time listener, you're in for a treat. Tune in to see what kind of madness Shawn and his co-hosts get up to next!

Episode 41: The Boy, The Dad, The Omnopcorp Struggle Continues

This week on Potato Salad Marmalade, Dad and Shawn find themselves stuck in the office recording commercials. With their podcast under the control of the evil corporation Omnopcorp, they must come up with a plan to take back what's rightfully theirs. As they brainstorm their next move, the duo realizes that their resources are limited, and they must think outside the box if they hope to succeed in their mission. With their backs against the wall, they must dig deep and use all their cunning and creativity to outwit Omnopcorp and reclaim control of their podcast. As they work to record the commercials, Dad and Shawn's frustration mounts, and they must work together to overcome the challenges and obstacles that stand in their way. Will their determination and teamwork pay off, or will Omnopcorp prove to be too powerful for them to overcome? Oh, and S. Hawn shows up as well!

All the boys wanted to do was to make a buck or two. That's all they asked for, but now, they've got an Omnopcorp-sized problem on their hands. Sponsorship isn't what it is cracked up to be for Carter and Shawn and in the Season Four premiere, they're going to face the opportunity of a lifetime and the beginning of a major hurdle for Potato Salad Marmalade!

Episode 39: Let's Talk About Feelings

The boys have feelings this week, but they have feelings every week, don't they? Shawn and Carter have been spending a lot of time thinking and some big changes in their lives lead to big thoughts and with that comes much discovery. It's not every day that mental health is discussed on the show, so we take the time to talk about what it is that makes us feel "right" and how we feel about who we are. It's an episode not to be missed. Also, we talk about the time that the mom of the "friend" with the robotic RC car served Dad dinner. It's a blast. HEADS UP: If the frank discussion of the mental health of children is an issue for you, pass this one up, friend. We love you anyway and we'll see you next time. Big hugs. ==================== Potato Salad Marmalade is a proud member of the Peak Sloth Podcast Network. ==================== Find this episode and many more wherever great podcasts can be found: Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/3USIr4X Spotify: http://bit.ly/3UNTX1s Google Podcasts: http://bit.ly/3UU7W5T Amazon Music: http://bit.ly/3GasDpP Pocket Casts: http://bit.ly/3ULNRP2 Stitcher: http://bit.ly/3TpBreA ==================== Official Site: https://potatosaladmarmalade.com Facebook: https://facebook.com/potatosaladmarmalade Twitter: https://twitter.com/marmaladesalad Instagram: https://instagram.com/potatosaladmarmalade Learn more about Dad (Shawn) here: https://solo.to/shawnmsmith ==================== #podcast #podcasts #podcasting ====================

Episode 38: Gobble Gobble Y'all

Stuffing your tummy with yummy food and desserts is an American tradition. Every year, we all get together with the ones we love and are so thankful for and spend hours reminiscing about that past year and thinking about years to come. It's a great season ahead and we all love to reflect. But we need to watch out for the cheek pinching grandmas and aunts! They're on the loose, for sure.

Episode 37: We're Sporting Cards Because We Like Sports

In this week's episode, Dad and Carter decide once and for all the answer to the age-old question: is Carter a hockey card or a football card? I know, I know, it seems silly, but the future of the world could depend on it. Or it might not, but we won't be certain unless we ask and then hope it doesn't matter. Also, the boys design their perfect "rookie card." Newsflash, Dad wears a bathing suit. Last, Carter talks about soccer and his excitement for Panini and this World Cup in Qatar.

Episode 35: Two Rad Guys and The Quest for Video Glory

On this week's episode, Dad and Buddy (that's Shawn and Carter for the uninitiated) decided to test out Riverside.fm and see if they couldn't make a video episode of their own. The results were, well, insane-o. We talked about where we went for a year and how things had changed in that time (newsflash: Carter has a lot more hair now!) and we even had time to talk about what gets us "jazzed." Unlike last week, there was far less talk about Fudgie the Whale. All that and so much more on Potato Salad Marmalade. Potato Salad Marmalade is a proud member of the Peak Sloth Podcast Network.

Episode 32: Bad Haircuts and Family Pics, Vacations on the Beach Part 3

Where DID Dad's hair go? Prior to last week, Shawn was big on communicating well with his hairdressers. Never once did a professional mess up his hair so badly that he wanted to cry. Well, he finally found the barber to take his good haircut streak and throw it all out the window. He's bald. (Actually, he has a buzzcut, which Carter finds hilarious.) Also, they've gone to the beach a bunch this month, so we're going to talk about Carter's favorite (if he has one).

Episode 31: A Change of Scenery and Either/Or

On this week's show, Shawn and Carter get a break from the ordinary and take the Smith family down to Florida via Dad's car. Everyone's packed in for the trip and it makes for a lot of fun. Car games were played on the way down from Maryland and, of course, Carter crushed it at I, Spy. In the spirit of competition or debate, the guys decided that they should carry this spirited conversation over to the show, talking about what they'd choose among several top options. Having spent more time in a pool, will floats finally get some love, or are they "not his thing?" Where does each state that the family drove through rank on a scale of 1-5?

Episode 30: Oceans vs. Pools, Who Wins this Aquatic War?

All it takes is one trip, just ONE trip, to the ocean and Carter seems hooked. Hours were spent trying to body surf the waves and it was great to watch. Will this boy be forever hooked on saltwater or is the fresh water of a nice pool still something he loves? Does he even have to choose which is best? (Actually, that was his idea.) Now that he's been in the water that long, what will he say is his favorite kind of body of water: oceans or pools? Also, the school year is ending today. What nice things does Carterman have to say about the year and to his friends and teachers? This kid is a well of kindness.

Episode 29: The Hottest Dogs and Freezy, Rockety Pops

Carter wanted to go. Dad didn't want to go at all, but he's never one to say no to the kid...or to a challenge. This week, Shawn and the little guy go head-to-head at the Howard County-Patapsco Valley Hot Dog Eating Contest and someone is going to be filled with regret. No spoilers. Also, the boys talk about their favorite non-ice cream Summer treats. Yummy to the max! Mixing Engineer: Jonathan Melcher Potato Salad Marmalade is a Proud Member of the Peak Sloth Podcast Network.

Episode 26: Our Cartoon World and Its Secret Pets

We didn't even make it through the opening of the show before things were thrown into disarray. Carter had no interest in what we had to offer. No salamander talk for him! Instead...he offered better. What if we had our own cartoon show? What would it be and what would it look like? Also, what if we had a secret pet? Our French bulldog, Savanah, is stubborn in her love, and won't share her humans, so we'd need to hide a new pet from her. What would we get? Where would we keep them? (During this segment, Shawn incorrectly identifies the capuchin monkey as the rhesus monkey. There's a big difference. Sorry for the error.)

Episode 10: The Quest for the Olive Loaf

We knew it was bound to happen, but the bad dream FINALLY came for the guys. The Quest for the Olive Loaf begins in an unexpected way. It also ends unexpectedly too. Unexpected can be good, which is why we just wrote that three times. Also, Carter talks about his ideal party for his elementary school and we talk about Dad's favorite condiment, mayo.

Episode 9: Earth to Jeffrey the Astronaut, Questions from Parents Together and Big Laughs

Episode 9: Earth to Jeffrey the Astronaut, Questions from Parents Together and Big Laughs

When you get a chance to speak with a world-famous astronaut (and the creator of chickens) you have to jump at the opportunity. We were able to get Jeffrey the Astronaut in a studio (read: Dad's office) for a 2-on-1 interview that really touched on a variety of topics from poultry to moon cheese to Neptune's pools. It's pretty comprehensive if we do say so ourselves. Let's see what Danny Bonaduce has to do with the show this week as well!

Episode 8: The Joke Book Joke Off, Dad's 200 Jumping Jacks and Silly Life Lessons Learned

Daddy's bit off a bit more than he can chew. Carter says he's just not that funny and that his "Dad bod" just isn't up to snuff anymore. Can Shawn outwit the Bubba at a game called "Make Me Laugh Joke-off" or will his "200 Jumping Jack Challenge" be where his redemption lies? All this and a question from outer space on this week's episode of Potato Salad Marmalade.

Episode 7: Wacky Libs and Challenging Listener Questions

This week was Dad's birthday and he got everything he wanted: a nice time with his family. (Cue the "awwwws" now!) After the cake has been cut and the presents were handed out, how else could Shawn connect with his "main man?" With two things that help him connect with his childhood: Mad Libs and silly rhetorical questions! Imagination is the best. Lovable Nintendo Wii-living Frenchman S.Hawn S.Mith makes an appearance (don't let Dad know about the "Bro Court" thing - he still isn't aware!)

On this week's show, Shawn and Carter discuss the best season of all: Halloween. After decorating the family home, the boys chat about two spooky entities to see which they find scarier, ghosts or skeletons. Which would you pick? Also, Carter casually invents a new battle card game that all the kids will be playing this time next year before reviewing the new Disney+ show "Earth to Ned."

Whatever can he do? Carter has been called into "Bro Court" by Vicious Andy Licious as the result of his banana bake choices from several weeks back. Now we will know which type of banana baked good will prevail as best in the eyes of the magistrate of Bro Court, the honorable S.Hawn S.Mith. Can Carter put up a convincing argument? Will Vicious Andy win out? Also, Carter reviews "Girl vs. Monster," a cute little Disney flick that he watched. Hear him break down what he did or didn't like. Spoiler: Shawn thinks all of these kids are the type of teenagers Carter needs to befriend one day. All this and more on this week's Potato Salad Marmalade.

Episode 3: The Third - Which Ice Cream is Best? What Is The Best Baked Good With Bananas? Oh, Chickens and Lasers too!

Episode 3: The Third - Which Ice Cream is Best? What Is The Best Baked Good With Bananas? Oh, Chickens and Lasers too!

Carter wanted to talk about ice cream. At least, we think that's what "can we talk about ice cream after dinner?" means. We took it up a notch and discuss the best flavors of all: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Also, Shawn and Carter set out to talk about summertime memories, but that gets derailed by chickens and lasers. Want to be on an upcoming episode of the show?

Episode 1: The First

Episode 1: The First

One day, the six-year-old looked up at his Dad and said, "Father, why can't we have a podcast?" It was right around that time that I looked down at Carter and was coming out of a really great nap, but that's how I remember it. Now we have one: Potato Salad Marmalade. Let's test the waters and see what the little guy thinks about condiments and how he answers questions from listeners.
