The Wrestler w. Gaby Dunn

The Wrestler w. Gaby Dunn

It's a movie about who we are in the public eye and outside of it, and a big, messy sweetie who can't get out of his own way and all of the folks who suffer as a result. We talk The Wrestler, alcoholic dads, and more with the wonderful Gaby Dunn.

We made a playlist to accompany this episode! It's comprised of songs that come to mind when we all think about this movie.

Why Are Dads is a show in which hosts Sarah Marshall and Alex Steed attempt to understand what the hell it means to be the grown children of dads and other dad-like figures. And, as they do with all difficult subject matter, they do so by looking through a pop culture lens.
