Role models and Father's Day are two topics that go together like peanut butter and jam. Is your father a good role model? Who do you look up to? For young children, parents are most often the first role models we have.
We start this episode with a brief history of Father's Day. Once the obligatory research is out of the way, we get into some real stuff. I search my memories for stories of my role models. It turns out that my entire life has been a quest for a positive male influence. Without my dad as a big part of my life I turned to my grandfather. I share many fun stories from my childhood.
Believe it or not, TV parents can often make great role models. Many of us were raised on a steady diet of television. In my own case, I looked to sitcoms like Family Ties, The Brady Bunch, and others to give me some of what I needed. Star Trek and the characters on that show were also hugely responsible for the way I looked at the world.

A day in the life of a Canadian mail carrier. We recently received some correspondence from listener Bill L. Bill wanted to know about the way the post office works in Canada. Because he is an American, Bill wanted to know what Canadians think of Americans, and also what we think of the differences between the two postal systems. Every day we deliver a huge amount of letters, magazines, bills, flyers and parcels. Due to the recent Covid-19 lockdown, people are shopping online in greater numbers than ever before. It is overwhelming, hence the joke of delivering parcels for arseholes.
On this episode, I record a snippet of my day as I deliver the mail. There are some sound quality issues due to the wind. The weather is always a factor in the life of a mail delivery agent. Put your headphones on, and put your credit card down. Get ready to learn about the mail delivery process on Parcels for Arseholes.

Controversy in our town! Local couple's fat shaming shenanigans goes viral!
Recently in the city of Timmins, local power couple Jess and Billy (Mr. Tattoo) released a video podcast. This has been a new ongoing project for them as they look to expand their empire. They are known around town as the go to artists for ink work. Actually, Billy doesn't do anything. Jess does all the actual tattoo work. Well, in their latest video they answered a question that asked if they would prefer to be 60 pounds or 600. It was all downhill after that.
Soul Forge Podcast has the audio in question. You will hear the controversy and be able to decide for yourself. Just how bad was the reaction to their fat shaming shenanigans? Did the town react properly?
