Ep 29: Special Father's Day Episode: The Driving Force Behind Dope Dads
It's that time of year again! The time where we celebrate both Juneteenth and fatherhood. In this year's special Father's Day episode, we wanted to take a deep dive into what drives dope Dads to be present, attentive, and active in their children's lives. To do that, we invited some of the dope Dads we know to share with us their motivation. Our special guests, Wes Jones and Jason L. Scott to join us and share their personal fatherhood stories. We also asked other dope Dads we know to send in videos of their stories as well. And, their testimonials are incredible and inspiring.
