Father Material

Father Material

Father Material is a podcast focused on exploring how fatherhood impacts one's creative process and path. Hosted by producer, director and new Dad, Tyler Gildin, each episode consists of a conversation with a prominent creative discussing how becoming a father has impacted their creative process, their perspective, and ultimately the material that they create. As a father of 2 under 3 years old, Tyler embarks in candid conversations with guests about the constant balancing act of juggling "your babies" with your actual human babies, in hopes that someone can talk him off the ledge of the crib.
