Episode 62. Are we jerks for hating this?

In what is now becoming an annual conversation, this week we try to unpack some of our complicated feelings about breast cancer awareness campaigns. We talk about a lot from feeling left out of survivor narratives to the potential power of symbolism and community. We also ask the big question: are pumpkins the new pink ribbons?

Episode 60. Billboard Dad Yourself

This week we are catching up on a bunch of partial topics we've had rolling around. We talk about trying to recognize the privilege in being flippant about death, discovering triggers for grief, happy moments about loved ones, and a very bad idea for a billboard. 

Here is the article we briefly discuss this week. Go read it because it covers the topic way better than we could.
