On May 23, 2016 I spent the day at the Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center completing my Not A Male Fail book proposal. One of the highlights of my day, other than the beautiful views, was my conversation with Walter Eggers both before and during the recording of the We Rad Dads podcast. Walter was down to earth, real, and a delight to talk to. We started our Skype session as strangers but ended as friends who could relate on many levels.
We had an interesting and meandering conversation that included an array of topics including Kris Kross, Justin Bieber, pilgrimages, clarity from chaos, opportunity within uncertainty, parenting, and Happy Socks! We even discussed the importance of being open with our children and ourselves as we discover new paradigms of what being a dad and what a man is all about.
Walter gave me the wonderful opportunity to talk about this blog and my book which he said, “was created for men; like me, who are simply different than the stereotypical coming-of-age man.”
Spend a few minutes with Walter and I as we touch on both the lighthearted and the profound. May you walk away challenged as a man, a father, and a difference maker!
