Did you have one of those dads who "never raised his voice?" No? Us either. What is a bear dad and is it ok to be one? If you have more than one child, are you a different parent to each one? PODRE discusses these and other pressing items with Keith Gessen, cofounder of N+1 and author of RAISING RAFFI (Viking 2022), a new book on dadhood and raising the little maniacs we adore so much. Then, we honor the very first recipient of the Not a Terrible Father in This One Instance Award (NATFITOIA), author and physician Dr. Ricardo Nuila, who regales us with his heroic tale of fatherly improvisation, provides some tips on flying with your children, and explains what a baby cop is.
You can read one of the essays from RAISING RAFFI in its original publication, some little zine called The New Yorker, where Keith is a frequent contributor, here.
Ricardo Nuila's excellent new nonfiction book THE PEOPLE'S HOSPITAL is available for order here.
