    In case you couldn’t tell from my last blog post, I am not a web designer by trade. My day job comes as a Network Consultant, meaning I have a very technical background in things like operating systems, networking equipment, and server hardware/software; but limited knowledge when it comes to things like HTML, PHP,  and […]

Who are the hosts?

Mike Carroll @_TheDarkMike

Mike is the younger half of the DrinksWithDad duo, being born and raised in Central New Jersey. He is an aspiring filmmaker with absolutely no Hollywood connections, prior experience, or any known talents to speak of. What he DOES have, is a very particular set of skills. These skills include consuming mass amounts of alcohol, pondering life’s mysteries, and blabbing into a microphone. Much like how Tony Stark was able to take a few pieces of scrap metal in the desert and create Iron Man, Mike Carroll is ready to save the world one podcast at a time. Or something like that…

Dale Carroll @isoluva

The other half of the DrinksWithDad duo is Dale, a life long New Jersey resident currently employed in the IT field. In his off hours Dale spends his free time rooting or berating the Knicks or the Niners, depending upon the season. When time permits Dale can be found trying to improve his skill set as an amateur photographer and DJ, but unfortunately he manages to spend more money than time on both. While barely managing to balance his hectic schedule as family chauffeur with all his part time hobbies, of course then it makes perfect sense for him to add a podcast to the list. Truthfully told, since some of the most funny, entertaining, and maddeningly frustrating conversations have been with his first born, Michael, for Dale, it was a no brainer.
