Far too many people think that fathers are superfluous, optional, and disposal, including some fathers themselves. Nothing could be farther from the truth, as my guests discuss. My first guest is Julia Espy, who is the author of If I Were Your Daddy, Here Is What You Would Learn. A single mother herself, she interviewed 35 men seeking their answers. Jim Higley is a full time single father to his three children, a Chicago Tribune columnist, and author of Bobblehead Dad.
