This past Father’s Day, I co-produced and co-hosted a podcast featuring some pretty awesome dads.

Among them is Mario Loiseu, a Haitian immigrant who works two jobs, including long hours as a parking lot attendant in New York City. He does this to help pay for his 9-year-old daughter, Mabou’s, tutoring. She is a science and language prodigy, and is already studying college-level algebra.

On the StoryCorps Podcast, I co-hosted an episode with Michael Garofalo featuring three awesome dads, among them the inimitable Albert Sykes and his son, Aidan.
