Dope Black Dads with Marvyn Harrison

Today's guest is Marvyn Harrison - father, entrepreneur, and host of the award-winning podcast Dope Black Dads which creates a safe space for fathers who wish to discuss their experiences of parenthood, being black and masculinity in the modern world. What began as a WhatsApp group has blossomed into a space that emboldens dads to lean into their parenting experience and provides a supportive hand in navigating the many complicated areas of raising children, especially the unique ones presented for Black and Black mixed Dads and children. Together Kate and Marvyn explore how our relationships with our own parents shape how we ourselves parent, systemic racism and when to broach these important conversations with children.  To become part of the Blended family, follow @blended on instagram.
