Why Are Dads?
Demystifying Dad and Big Fish with Guest Louisa Smith
Tim Burton's Big Fish is about a man who hopes to get a better sense of who is yarn-spinning father is. Are there larger truths in our parents’ self-constructed myths? In their “amusing lies”? Who were our parents before we were born, anyway? Is it possible to get to know those people?
It's another movie about a dad so on the nose with its themes that it is impossible to open with a pithy line about the issues it offers for unpacking.
Join Sarah, Alex and guest Louisa Smith as they unpack.
Why Are Dads is a show in which we attempt to understand what the hell it means to be the grown children of dads and other dad-like figures. And, as we do with all difficult subject matter, we this by looking through a pop culture lens.
