In this special Art of Fatherhood podcast, I team up with Medela and The March of Dimes. My guests are Jeff Castillo, Malcolm Newsome and David Holstein. We talk about how men and dads can be advocates to create a family friendly workplace. Plus the guys share their experience on how they balance family, work and life. In addition, we talk about fatherhood, the pain of losing a child and how dads need support. Lastly, we finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.

About Malcolm Newsome
Malcom Newsome is a children’s book author from the Chicago area. He has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology, previously served as the executive vice president of a software consulting firm, and now works in cyber security. He writes picture books with the aim of bringing hope and possibility to as many young people as he can. Malcolm is a married father of five. After the first three children were born, they experienced the loss of two unborn children. He hopes his debut picture book, Dear Star Baby, will bring healing to the millions of other families who experience this kind of grief. When he’s not writing or spending time with family, you’ll probably find him either reading, spending time outside in his mini-orchard, or being a lumberjack.
