Show Notes

I am excited to share this episode with you not only because Kevin is a dear friend from college but because he is one of the most delightful and interesting people I know!    Our conversation in this episode includes:   

  • What it’s like for non-traditional and African American fathers battling stereotype expectations about fatherhood
  • How men’s bodies change once they become fathers, including decreases in testosterone
  • The “father culture” of Sweden
  • Fathers in prison
  • “Dead Broke” Dads
  • Reforming child support to include the economic value of “time spent.”
  • Spoken and unspoken rules about storytelling and its impact on society
