Episode 12: Michael Hingston/Should fathers kiss their son?

I’m so happy to share with you the interview I had with writer, father, and thinker of cool thoughts, Micheal Hingston. Micheal is an author and journalist, with articles written in The Guardian, The Walrus, Salon, The National Post, Wired, etc etc etc.

Mike is also one of the guests that was referred to me by another guest because he wanted to really expand his thoughts on fatherhood, and wanted to share a specific topic. I have to say, I love when both of those things happen, when a guest is referred by another guest, and when they come by with something specific they want to discuss. In this case it was of the nurturing value of a father kissing his son, and how and why he believes it’s important for every father to kiss their son. Between all that, we chat about what it is to raise a son and daughter, what’s it like to be conflicted about a sport you love, and his views about his father.

You can see what Micheal has been up to, and read his articles at his website 

You can also buy his book The Dilettantes in Amazon or his other project, The Short Story Advent Calendar. Michael also mentioned a series of books he’s been reading called The Neapolitan Novels and they are done by Elena Ferrante. And last but not least, give Michael a follow on Twitter and tell him how much you liked hearing his voice
