Episode 39: Becoming a Man Without a Father.
You can also listen on:
Dan discusses how he thinks not having a father affected him. Single-parent households are not unique or uncommon at all, especially in communities of color. Since Dan never had a father figure to use as a point of reference, he doesn’t know how truly affected he is by not having one. He can only speculate and share some of his childhood memories. Dan shares how he sought approval and recognition from some of the older guys in his neighborhood, many of who were criminals and deadbeat fathers themselves. The irony!
