One of the new words introduced into the dictionary this year made Aaron & Jason dig into their own affliction - “The Dad Bod.” What is the definition? What causes it? Should non-dads qualify? Also we hear about Aaron & Jason’s own Dad bod journeys, international snacks, pregnancy weight. (Btw, this episode is not as scientific as the description feels like...but sometimes we like to feel smarter than we are).
