Welcome to the second episode of the Uncle Shawn podcast. Today is my daughter's 9th birthday. So many people are celebrating her, and she deserves it. But hell...she's such a good person because my wife and I raised her to be. Shouldn't we be celebrated for surviving and thriving through 9 years of parenting? In this episode I talk about the birthing process, the first fart, the emotions (mainly fear) around fatherhood, and how parenting is either in alignment or in opposition to the way you were parenting. I also shout out one of my new favorite films--I've embedded the trailer below.
