Blooming onions, beat-up red Jeeps, and baseball lineups are all part of our conversation with father and son Bill and Willie Geist, TV personalities and authors of the new book, Good Talk Dad: The Birds and the Bees…and Other Conversations We Forgot to Have. We also talk about the challenges of being a good dad while pursuing a TV career, the changing media portrayal of dads, and life with a family in New York City.
Bill Geist is the beloved, award-winning, long-time special correspondent for “CBS: Sunday Morning,” whose debut Little League Confidential was a New York Times bestseller in hardcover and paper. Willie Geist is a Today Show host, popular member of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and author of the best-selling American Freak Show.
The Parents’ Phrase Book author Whit Honea joins us again to talk about the conversations he’s dreading having with his kids.
