    Fighting For Fatherhood with Starsky Robinson

    Fighting For Fatherhood with Starsky Robinson

    It's an honor and a pleasure to sit down with my longtime friend, Starsky Robinson, a single father to a beautiful 4 year old daughter.  He opens up to the tribe about the first time he every held his daughter in his arms and how everything changed in his life, which I'm sure all dads (and moms) can relate to.  We also touch on his custody battle with his daughter's mother and how all that unfolded.  We talk about the emotional, psychological and physical drain the process was and he shares his thoughts on the broken system in place and hopes his story can help anyone out there going through something similar.

    Starsky tops it off with 3 pieces of advice for single dads - which certainly also apply to all parents!

    First Few Weeks of Fatherhood with First Time Dad, Brian B

    First Few Weeks of Fatherhood with First Time Dad, Brian B

    At the time of this recording, Brian B is almost 3 weeks into fatherhood with his first daughter, Annie Capri and shares the birthing story and how life has changed in the last several weeks. On top of everything else, New York City (where he lives) is still amidst a quarantine due to COVID-19 and all of his private event gigs have been put on pause, and just even daily life of moving around the city with a newborn sounds like quite the challenge. 

    We get a chance to catch up with Brian and grab some advice that he can give to expecting dads while it's all still so FRESH!
