Steffen brings the case against his dad, Brian. Steffen enjoys spending time with his family, but says too much of their "together" time is based around pool parties. Steffen doesn't care for swimming or laying out, and wants the family to do more indoor activities together. Brian says pool time is a great way for the family to bond.
Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.
Big thanks again to Joel Mann and community radio station WERU-FM in Blue Hill, Maine for hosting the Judge this summer!
Thanks to Michael Davidson Jr. for suggesting this week's title! To suggest a title for a future episode, like Judge John Hodgman on Facebook. We regularly put a call for submissions.
Alex and Kristina are a married couple, and are academics who both have pursued admittedly nerdy careers. They're happy with their lot in life, but disagree on handling potential nerdiness in their future children. Should they be allowed to geek out at academic summer camps, or be forced to socialize at camps that focus on the traditional stuff, like canoeing or Capture the Flag?
